Customize Kibana Favicon


(lorraine) #1

I am struggling to figure out how to change the kibana favicon to a custom branded one. I've tried overlaying the elk.ico file in:

/opt/kibana/src/ui/public/images/

and

/opt/kibana/optimize/bundles/src/ui/public/images

I've also tried changing the favicon.ico file located at:

/opt/kibana/node/lib/node_modules/npm/html

After these changes, I've cleared the browser cache and restarted Kibana. But I've yet to see the favicon change on the chrome browser tab.

I should point out that I am NOT using an in-house build of Kibana from source, but rather the package downloaded from Elastic. I am running Kibana version 4.4.2.

Any help with the steps to do this would be appreciated.

Both of those should work. If you're updating /opt/kibana/src/ui/public/images you'll have to rebundle (removing the optimize/bundles folder, restarting the server). Clearing your cache doesn't seem to necessarily clear the favicon cache. Can you try a different browser that you haven't loaded kibana in? Or more browser specific, investigate clearing the favicon cache, in chrome right clicking on a tab and clicking reload worked for me.
