General Theme settings

The Theme settings described below apply to Parallels Client for all available platforms.


Select General in the left pane and specify the following Theme properties:

  • Enable Theme: Enable or disable the Theme (the default Theme cannot be disabled).
  • Name: Specify a Theme name.
  • Description: Specify an optional Theme description.
  • Override authentication domain: Allows you to specify a domain name that will be passed to Parallels Client, so users don't have to enter it manually. This setting overrides the domain name setting in Connection > Authentication. For more information, see Allowing users to change domain password.
  • Limit access to this Theme to members of these Active Directory groups: If this option is cleared, any Parallels RAS user can access the Theme if they know its URL. To limit access to a particular group (or groups), select this option and then click Tasks > Add (or click the [+] icon) and select the desired group(s).
  • MFA provider: Select an MFA provider for the Theme.


Select Messages in the left pane and specify a post-logon message (up to 500 characters). The post-logon message appears as a message box immediately after the user successfully logs in. The message can be overridden for Web Client and Windows client individually (see Messages for each client in the subsequent sections).
