Especially when working over a remote desktop tool like VNC or RDP it can become handy to disable the login animation on the openITCOCKPIT Login screen.


Disable login animation temporarily

Every user can disable the login animation by adding the query parameter "remote" to the url. This option is only temporary and will not affect other users.

?remote=true

For example:


Disable login animation permanently

Navigate to "System" => "System Settings" and search for the "DISABLE_LOGIN_ANIMATION" option. Change the value to "True" and press on "Save".

This will disable all animations on the login screen for all users permanently.


openITCOCKPIT Satellite Server

Disable login animation temporarily

Like on the Master Server every user can disable the login animation by adding the query parameter "remote" to the url.


Disable login animation permanently

On Satellite Servers individual settings are stored in the configuration file /opt/openitc/frontend/config/interface.yml.

If this file does not exists on your system you can create it using the following command:

/opt/openitc/frontend/config/interface.defaults.yml /opt/openitc/frontend/config/interface.yml


Set the key "disable_login_animation" to "1".

# Disable animation on login screen
# Values: 0 and 1
disable_login_animation: 1
