Changing Kibana logo on the top left hand side

(Reena Deberry) #1

I am currently on Kibana 6.0 and I used these steps below suggested by
tatdatTat Dat Pham and still not able to see my company logo, please advise.


For change logo, find file "global_nav.less"

(kibana directory)/src/ui/public/chrome/directives/global_nav/global_nav.less

Change to

background-image: url("~ui/images/your-company-logo.png"); -- line 35

You must upload your logo in folder

(kibana directory)/src/ui/public/images/

Have you tried changing it by replacing the file for ex: "abcd.svg" present under the directory "/usr/share/kibana/optimize/bundles/".Images with png extension works as well.
Refreshing the browser alone is sufficient.
Path; /usr/share/kibana/optimize/bundles/src/ui/public/images

Replace the kibana logo? Follow this for more ref.

(Reena Deberry) #5

There is no such file elk.ico for my installation of Kibana 6.0

(Joseph Dissmeyer) #6

It took me a while to figure this out (even with provided documentation in the forums here).
But here is the steps that I take:

Take note of this file: /usr/share/kibana/src/ui/public/images/kibana.svg
*** This file is your corporate logo template. I used the Inkspace app to edit it, add in our corporate logo, etc.

Make a backup of it. Note: This logo svg will be replaced automatically between updates/upgrades of Kibana - every time. Remember this.

  1. Once you have your edited SVG ready to go, copy it back to /usr/share/kibana/src/ui/public/images/kibana.svg (overwrite the file).

  2. Stop the Kibana service.

  3. Install a Kibana plugin, such as X-Pack. Example:/usr/share/kibana/bin/kibana-plugin install x-pack

  4. Wait for the "Optimizing and caching browser bundles" process to complete. This can take a while, up to 20 minutes.

  5. When done, start Kibana and log in. Verify the logo is set up to your liking.

  6. Wash, rinse, repeat on other Kibana nodes (if applicable).

  7. Optional: If you aren't licensed for X-Pack, buy a subscription :slight_smile: Otherwise stop the Kibana service, remove the X-Pack plugin /usr/share/kibana/bin/kibana-plugin install x-pack, then start Kibana.
    *The optimization process only runs when you install a plugin, not when you remove one.

This process works for me in Kibana v5.x versions as well as 6.0 and 6.1. Things may change in 6.2 though....
I'm not sure how to change the browser favicon yet. Personally, I'm ok with the Kibana favicon so it is low priority for me to figure out how to get that swapped out with my corp icon.

Thank you, i will try this and let you know how it goes!!!

Tried these steps and since i do not have a license for x-pack i'm stuck. I will keep trying though and see if i am successful.

(kulkarni) #8

You can install x-pack to get a free 30 day license. Plz check here for docs:
