IMPORTANT: The applied customization will only be supported in the current version, and this may not be reflected when you upgrade to the latest version of Bold BI Server. In this case, you may have to modify it again at your end. Additionally, we highly recommend that users do not modify the login page UI elements according to their requirements. This should be done at your own risk. If any issues are reported to the Bold BI support team, the team will need the customized files to reproduce the issue in order to provide a resolution.
