About user messages

There are several types of user messages.

  • Messages that appear on the sign in or sign out page

Note: If you are using SAML for authentication, the sign in page is presented by your identity provider and is not customizable via GitHub Enterprise Server.

You can use Markdown to format your message. For more information, see "About writing and formatting on GitHub."
