Customize OBIEE Logon Image

Customize OBIEE Logon Image

Sometimes it is important to provide a personalized logon image and customized text details for the customer. Let us see the configuration details to customize the login image. I will be using my blog logo for this demonstration.
1. Upload the logo image and change the logon image path under Oraclebi directory subfolders.
2. Change settings in Instanceconfig.xml file
3. Restart the services.
Upload the logo image and change the logon image path under Oraclebi directory subfolders.
1. All the skin images are stored in the Oraclebi\web\app\res\sk_oracle10 folder. This folder comes with all default settings.
2. Duplicate sk_oracle10 folder and rename anything, I have renamed it as sk_obiworldlogo.
3. The folder name should contain sk_ as the prefix name.

4. Open the sk_obiworldlogo folder. Place the logo image under b_mozilla_4 folder and change the image name path in the logon.css file which is available in this folder.

Provide the name of the image in the background-image path. Save the file.
5. Follow 1 to 4 steps as above and do the similar changes in the directory:\OracleBI\oc4j_bi\j2ee\home\applications\analytics\analytics\res\sk_obiworldlogo.

So the logo image and logon.css file changes have to be made in two directories.
Change settings in Instanceconfig.xml file
1. Add the default style code as below and mention the folder name in the instanceconfig.xml file. Default style code is for the login screen image and default skin code is for skin within the Answers tool. Ensure the name is case sensitive and do not include sk_ as prefix.

Restart the services.
1. Re-start the BI server and presentation server services. You will see your customized login image as below.

2. You can customize the logon screen as per the company requirements. The content text of this login screen can be changed as well and we will see some examples in the later posts in this blog.
