Add your organization's logo to BlueCat Gateway, specify the theme/color palette BlueCat Gateway should use when displaying its web UI, and select a color theme. You can also configure BlueCat Gateway to log in users upon visiting the index page automatically.

  1. Log in to BlueCat Gateway.
  2. Select Administration > Configurations > General Configuration.
  3. Click Interface.

  4. In the UI Customizations File field, click Browse to upload custom theme/color palette to BlueCat Gateway.

    For more information on customizing your UI theme, refer to Customizing the color palette.

  5. Select the UI Theme from the drop-down list. You can select the default original_dark_theme or the standard_light_theme shipped with BlueCat Gateway or the custom theme uploaded in Step 4.
  6. Select the Login Page Logo. You can either select the Light Logo or the Dark Logo or upload a Custom logo. You can use any image file format supported by your browser.
    • Light logos work best with dark themes, and dark logos work best with light themes.
    • Bluecat Gateway v21.8.1 now ships with a light UI theme (standard_light_theme) that is more in line with BlueCat Address Manager.

  7. In the Panel Logo field, click Browse to add your organization's logo to Gateway.
    You can use any image file format supported by your browser.
  8. Click the Enable Autologin check box. The Autologin Module Path field is activated. Click Browse to select your authentication.
    The file type for the autologin module depends on what the autologin module does. You can customize the autologin module to suit your needs. However, your autologin module must implement the get username and get password functions. BlueCat recommends that passwords never be hardcoded in the configuration file, so the responsibility of fetching login credentials must be delegated to helper functions.
    Note: You must save the autologin credentials in JSON format under the workspace directory and specify the file name in the helper functions.
  9. Click Save.
    Note: You can also configure the Login Page Logo via the following settings in the config.json configuration file:
        "login_logo_mode": "dark",
        "login_logo_custom_file": null
    • To use the default dark or light logo shipped with BlueCat Gateway, set login_logo_mode to either dark or light, respectively.
    • To use a custom logo, set login_logo_mode to custom and login_logo_custom_file to a path that’s relative to <workspace>/resources/images. Place the custom logo image at <workspace>/resources/images/login_logo_custom_file.
