You can override the default configuration of the Welcome application by using a central configuration file, located in app/welcome/scripts/config.js. Currently, the following configuration options are available:

Custom links

Can be used to add some useful links for the user, such as other applications or intranet sites.


window.camWelcomeConf = {
  links: [
      label: 'Camunda Forum',
      href: '',
      description: 'Forum for Camunda Platform users and developers'
    // ...


The localization of the Welcome application is contained in the app/welcome/locales/ directory. This directory contains a separate localization file for every available language. The file name consists of the language code and the suffix .json (e.g., en.json).

The Welcome application uses a locale file corresponding to the language settings of the browser. You can set the availableLocales property in the configuration file to provide a list of available locales. Every locale which is contained in this list must have a locale file in the locales directory with the corresponding language code.

If the browser uses a language which is not available, the Welcome application uses the locale which is defined via the fallbackLocale property in the configuration file:

"locales": {
  "availableLocales": ["en", "de"],
  "fallbackLocale": "en"

To create a new localization for the Welcome application, copy the provided language file, translate it and save it as a new localization file with the corresponding language code. To make the new translation available, add it to the list of available locales in the configuration file.

Change CSRF Cookie Name

The default name of the CSRF Cookie is XSRF-TOKEN. When using other applications within the same-origin, the CSRF mechanisms could interfere with each other. To avoid the name conflict, you can change the name of the CSRF cookie in the config.js file as follows:

var camWelcomeConf = {
  // …
  csrfCookieName: 'MY-XSRF-TOKEN'

Note: Please make sure to change the CSRF cookie name also on server-side.

Disable Welcome Message for new Users

First-time visitors are shown a message directing them to the camunda welcome page. If you do not want this message to be shown, you can disable it by adjusting the config.js as follows:

var camWelcomeConf = {
  // …
  disableWelcomeMessage: true

Note: This does only affect the Welcome login page. For other webapps, you need to adjust the corresponding config file as well.
