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


export default {
  // …
  links: [
      label: 'Camunda Forum',
      href: '',
      description: 'Forum for Camnuda BPM users and developers'
    // ...

Logo and Header Color

You can change the visual aspects of Welcome. The user stylesheet file is located in app/welcome/styles/user-styles.css. This file contains CSS which is loaded into Welcome and can override the standard styles.

.navbar-brand {
  /* hides the "Camunda Welcome" text */
  text-indent: -999em;
  /* put your logo */
  background-image: url(./path/to/the/logo.png);
  /* sets the width to match the logo's width */
  width: 80px;

/* changes the header bottom border color  */
[cam-widget-header] {
  border-bottom-color: blue;

Note: you can also change the app name (Welcome) and vendor (Camunda) by changing the app/welcome/scripts/config.js configuration file as follow:

export default {
  // …
  app: {
    name: 'Welcome',
    vendor: 'Company'


Welcome can be localized. Camunda maintains English and German translation files. You can find and download community maintained translation files at the Camunda webapp translations repository.

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:

export default {
  // …
  "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:

export default {
  // …
  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:

export default {
  // …
  disableWelcomeMessage: true

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