Changing iTop logos

Change the iTop logos
min version:


In this tutorial, we will learn how to change the iTop logos

By default the admin console will have an iTop logo in its menu :

When fully opened: iTop 3 with expanded menu

And when collapsed: iTop 3 with collapsed menu

Those logos can be customized with the following procedure.

with the Designer

Prerequisite: You must be a Combodo's customer

Upload logos

  1. Open the “Branding” tab

This view allows you to replace the iTop logo with the one of your choice.

Select another logo in the drop-down list, or use the button to upload your own logo.

The image file formats supported are:

  • Portable Network Graphics, or PNG. This is the recommended format for iTop 2.7 and before, as it allows for a transparent background for a better integration into the iTop GUI.
  • Joint Photographic Experts Group, known as JPG or JPEG.
  • Graphics Interchange Format, or GIF.
  • Scalable Vector Graphics, or SVG. This is the recommended format for iTop above 3.0 only

The image will be resized to fit to the UI of iTop.

For a perfect result, the uploaded image must have the following dimensions. Any image bigger will be automatically resized to fit in the specified dimensions.
Logo Dimensions in pixels
Before iTop 3.0.0 After iTop 3.0.0
Main 220*64 310*70
Main compact n/a 74*74 (displayed is 37*37)
Login 300*54
Portal 192*50

with an iTop Extension

Prerequisite: You must be familiar with the Syntax used in Tutorials and have already created an extension.

You will need to :

  • create a new extension
  • add the new files in the extension
  • declare logo overwrite in the extension's XML

Add files

To add the logo image files, you can either :

  • Add the files directly in your module. To use them, you'll need to specify a relative path (module code + file name)
  • Add the image data in the XML (see the XML reference on logos). To use them, specify the fileref id

Define logos

The logos can be redefined in the XML branding node. In the example below :

  • main_logo_compact (logo with menu collapsed - for the one displayed in the expanded menu you should customize main_logo) : use an image file contained in a module
  • login_logo (displayed on the login page) : use a fileref
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<itop_design xmlns:xsi="" version="1.0">
    <main_logo_compact _delta="define">sample-itop-logos/custom-logo-compact.png</main_logo_compact>
    <login_logo _delta="define">
      <fileref ref="custom-logo"/>
