Changing the Oracle logo in OBIEE 12c

Most customers want to change the Oracle logo located in the top-left corner of the OBIEE website to their own company’s logo.

obiee12c_oracle_logo

After upgrading from OBIEE 11g to OBIEE 12c, your previous change for this logo will not carry forward, or of course, if you did a new install, you will need to make a change to replace the Oracle logo with your own.  This post explains the simplest way to change the Oracle logo in OBIEE 12c.

Perform a search (recursive search) on file system of your OBIEE 12c server, in all OBIEE directories, for files with “oracle_logo” or “oracle_logo.png”.
Your search will return many directories containing this file.  You will need to change the file in a subset of these directories.

Since you will be likely using the “s_Alta” style in OBIEE 12c, pick out the directories with “s_Alta” in their path.  There should be about 9 directories and they will look like the directories listed below.  If you are not using “s_Alta”, then pick the directories with the appropriate style.

Get your company logo and make it a similar size to the Oracle Logo image.  Rename your company logo file to the name oracle_logo.png.

Go into each of the directories you identified in the above steps, and rename the oracle_logo.png file to oracle_logo.bkup or oracle_logo.orig.
Then, copy your company logo (that is now renamed to oracle_logo.png) into all the directories.

The directory paths may look something like these shown below, but will be different.  If you not using BI Mobile App Designer (bimad) or BI Publisher (bipublisher), you can ignore the bottom 6 directories, and just update the 3 analytics directories.

Good luck with your change.  Thanks for reading!
