By default the Welcome message on the login screen in Maximo displays as: "Welcome to Maximo".
This message and other text on the login screen is controlled by values in the MAXMESSAGES table. In order to
change the values in your MAXMESSAGES table there is a Messages application under Select Action in the
Database Configuration application. Go to System Configuration-> Platform Configuration-> Database Configuration
and then click on Select Action / Messages. Once you are in the Messages application you can filter for
login under the Message Group column.
This will bring up a list of all the messages used to display text on the Login screen. If you select Message ID BMXAA5095I and
change the Value for this message then it will replace the current "Welcome to Maximo" message. As an example I changed
the value to "Welcome to IBM Maximo" and then the login screen shows like this:
You can replace the welcome message with your company name or "Development Environment" to personalize your environment
or indicate what instance you are using. Similarly you can change the messages for User Name, Password, Sign In,
Forgot Password, New User, and Register Now. There are different message records for each of these. Lastly there is a message
that controls the user welcome on the top left of the Start Center after a user logs in.
If you modify the value for Message ID BMXAA5094E then you could change the message to look like:
Changing values in the Messages application provides a quick method to customize your Maximo environment.
