How to Add a Custom Link to a 2016 Light Theme

    Applies to:
  • Legacy SecureAuth IdP
Deployment model:
  • On Premises
  • SecureAuth IdP Version affected: 9.0.x++

As a workaround, html links can be hard coded into the theme page used by a realm. This guide will show you one way of achieving this for the initial login page of our theme 2016 Light.

    - Save these changes to the html file and the end result will look something like this.


    This newly added Link will bring users to whichever URL that it's directed to from the html file. In this example, the link will go to
