Branding the logo and favicons

Thought I’d share :wink:

The definitions of the title and the favicons are located in the file: /usr/share/kibana/src/core/server/rendering/views/template.js.

There you have the following line for Title definition (Elastic):

/#PURE/_react.default.createElement(“title”, null, “Elastic”), /#PURE/_react.default.createElement(_fonts.Fonts, {
url: uiPublicUrl


The favicon files located in this folder:/usr/share/kibana/src/core/server/core_app/assets/favicons

Then, below in that file, you have the favicons paths definition:

/#PURE/_react.default.createElement(“link”, {
rel: “icon”,
type: “image/png”,
sizes: “32x32”,
href: ${uiPublicUrl}/favicons/favicon-32x32.png
}), /#PURE/_react.default.createElement(“link”, {
rel: “icon”,
type: “image/png”,
sizes: “16x16”,
href: ${uiPublicUrl}/favicons/favicon-16x16.png

   /*#__PURE__*/_react.default.createElement("link", {
rel: "shortcut icon",
href: `${uiPublicUrl}/favicons/favicon.ico`


You can also customize the logon screen via properties in the kibana.yml file; specifically the following:


This appears to be functionality contributed from SearchGuard to ODFE. More info on options available in their doc.

Though the SearchGuard doc says it should be an absolute URL, you can use a relative URL. If you are using Kibana docker and have set, for example, brandimage to /plugins/home/assets/logos/logo.svg. Then the place to put your logo in the container will be at /usr/share/kibana/src/plugins/home/public/assets/logos/logo.svg. In fact, the default open distro logo is located here as well as other company logos.

I believe you can place into any directory under src that has a “public” in its name, but I have not tested that fully.
