Update notification messages can be customized by updating the verde-restart.txt file for its corresponding language folder. This alert file is read when the Gold Image is checked in which is the use case for when users are notified. The alert message requires users to update their dynamic guest sessions.
verde-restart.txt files are added during the installation of VERDE and available in the following folder:
/usr/lib/verde/etc/alerts/<locale-code> where the
<locale-code> corresponds to one of the supported languages listed in the table below.
In the following example, a source file is created and named
en.txt to replace the English alert message:
# VERDE alert catalog
caption = "VERDE - ALERT MESSAGE TITLE such as ADMINISTRATOR REQUESTS SHUTDOWN"
Enter the text of your new message here.
Once the edits are complete, process the
en.txt file through the message creation script, located in:

The source file can be created in a temporary directory. The script will create a new folder named after the input file name (en) in this directory, then create and add the
verde-restart.txt file in it.

Do not modify the output files. The codes at the top of the file correspond to the length of the alert title or body since they are automatically generated by the script.
