Customize the Citrix Receiver logon dialog box

Sep 11, 2014

When Citrix Receiver users log on to a store, no title text is displayed on the logon dialog box, by default. You can display the default text “Please log on” or compose your own custom message. To display and customize the title text on the Citrix Receiver logon dialog box, you edit the files for the authentication service.

Important: In multiple server deployments, use only one server at a time to make changes to the configuration of the server group. Ensure that the Citrix StoreFront management console is not running on any of the other servers in the deployment. Once complete, propagate your configuration changes to the server group so that the other servers in the deployment are updated.
  1. Use a text editor to open the UsernamePassword.tfrm file for the authentication service, which is typically located in the C:\inetpub\wwwroot\Citrix\Authentication\App_Data\Templates\ directory.
  2. Locate the following lines in the file.
    @* @Heading("ExplicitAuth:AuthenticateHeadingText") *@
  3. Uncomment the statement by removing the leading and trailing leading @* and trailing *@, as shown below.
    @Heading("ExplicitAuth:AuthenticateHeadingText") 
    

    Citrix Receiver users see the default title text “Please log on”, or the appropriate localized version of this text, when they log on to stores that use this authentication service.

  4. To modify the title text, use a text editor to open the ExplicitAuth.resx file for the authentication service, which is typically located in the C:\inetpub\wwwroot\Citrix\Authentication\App_Data\resources\ directory.
  5. Locate the following elements in the file. Edit the text enclosed within the <value> element to modify the title text that users see on the Citrix Receiver logon dialog box when they access stores that use this authentication service.
    <data name="AuthenticateHeadingText" xml:space="preserve"> 
      <value>My Company Name</value> 
    </data>

    To modify the Citrix Receiver logon dialog box title text for users in other locales, edit the localized files ExplicitAuth.languagecode.resx, where languagecode is the locale identifier.
