Customize the Print Deploy user login popup branding and text

Depending on the method you've chosen to determine the user's identity, users might be presented with a one-off user login popup for authentication.

It's pretty much a stock standard, boring popup, ready for you to customize with your branding and text so it fits in nicely with your company's branding and writing style.

For more information about customization, take a look at Customization in the PaperCut NG/MF Manual.

Customize branding

  1. Create a folder named brands where:

    • install location is where PaperCut NG/MF is installed on the server

    • OS is the operating system of your PaperCut server.

    install location\providers\print-deploy\OS\data\brands

  2. Save a copy of the company logo in the folder. The logo must be:

    • .png format

    • 150 x 82 pixels

    • named auth-dialog-logo.png

  3. for changes to take effect.

Customize text

In the /data/translations/custom folder, create a JSON file for your language. For example, selfservice-en-US.json (English US), selfservice-es.json (Spanish), or selfservice-fr.json (French), etc.

Add the following config keys in the file:

Config value  
Title Title at the top of the login popup
Instructions Login text instructions
Username User name text box label
Password Password text box label
SignIn Signin button text

Either download the text for the JSON file or copy this text:


"Title": "Username and password",

"Instructions": "Your username and password are required so that the right printers are added to your device.",

"Username": "Username",

"Password": "Password",

"SignIn": "Sign in and add printers"
