ModifyGenericBackendMessagesEvent

New in version 12.0: This event serves as direct replacement for the now removed hook $GLOBALS['TYPO3_CONF_VARS']['SC_OPTIONS']['t3lib/class.t3lib_befunc.php']['displayWarningMessages'].

This Event allows to add or alter messages that are displayed in the “About” module (default start module of the TYPO3 Backend).

Extensions such as the system extension EXT:reports use this Event to display custom messages based on the status of the system:
