Cisco WLC captured web auth character limitations

Nice to know:
Step 5 If you want the user to be directed to a particular URL (such as the URL for your company) after login,
enter the desired URL (such as http://www.AcompanyBC.com) in the Redirect URL After Login field. You
can enter up to 254 characters.
Note The controller supports web authentication redirects only to HTTP (HTTP over TCP) servers. It
does not support web authentication redirects to HTTPS (HTTP over SSL) servers.
Step 6 If you want to create your own headline on the login page, enter the desired text in the Headline field.
You can enter up to 127 characters. The default headline is “Welcome to the Cisco wireless network.”
Step 7 If you want to create your own message on the login page, enter the desired text in the Message field.
You can enter up to 2047 characters. The default message is “Cisco is pleased to provide the Wireless
LAN infrastructure for your network. Please login and put your air space to work.”
Of course you can use a web-auth bundle to overcome this limitation but you should keep it in mind if you’re using the built in captured web portal.
