You can customize the Red Hat OpenShift Service on AWS web console to set a custom logo, product name, links, notifications, and command line downloads. This is especially helpful if you need to tailor the web console to meet specific corporate or government requirements.

Adding a custom logo and product name

You can create custom branding by adding a custom logo or custom product name. You can set both or one without the other, as these settings are independent of each other.

  • You must have administrator privileges.

  • Create a file of the logo that you want to use. The logo can be a file in any common image format, including GIF, JPG, PNG, or SVG, and is constrained to a max-width of 200px and a max-height` of 68px. Image size must not exceed 1 MB due to constraints on the ConfigMap object size.

  1. Import your logo file into a config map in the openshift-config namespace:

    $ oc create configmap console-custom-logo --from-file /path/to/console-custom-logo.png -n openshift-config

    You can alternatively apply the following YAML to create the config map:

    apiVersion: v1
    kind: ConfigMap
      name: console-custom-logo
      namespace: openshift-config
      console-custom-logo.png: <base64-encoded_logo> ... (1)
    1 Provide a valid base64-encoded logo.
  2. Edit the web console’s Operator configuration to include customLogoFile and customProductName:

    $ oc edit consoles.operator.openshift.io cluster
    apiVersion: operator.openshift.io/v1
    kind: Console
      name: cluster
          key: console-custom-logo.png
          name: console-custom-logo
        customProductName: My Console

    Once the Operator configuration is updated, it will sync the custom logo config map into the console namespace, mount it to the console pod, and redeploy.

  3. Check for success. If there are any issues, the console cluster Operator will report a Degraded status, and the console Operator configuration will also report a CustomLogoDegraded status, but with reasons like KeyOrFilenameInvalid or NoImageProvided.

    To check the clusteroperator, run:

    $ oc get clusteroperator console -o yaml

    To check the console Operator configuration, run:

    $ oc get consoles.operator.openshift.io -o yaml

Developer catalog and sub-catalog customization

As a cluster administrator, you have the ability to organize and manage the Developer catalog or its sub-catalogs. You can enable or disable the sub-catalog types or disable the entire developer catalog.

The developerCatalog.types object includes the following parameters that you must define in a snippet to use them in the YAML view:

  • state: Defines if a list of developer catalog types should be enabled or disabled.

  • enabled: Defines a list of developer catalog types (sub-catalogs) that are visible to users.

  • disabled: Defines a list of developer catalog types (sub-catalogs) that are not visible to users.

You can enable or disable the following developer catalog types (sub-catalogs) using the YAML view or the form view.

  • Builder Images

  • Templates

  • Devfiles

  • Samples

  • Helm Charts

  • Event Sources

  • Event Sinks

  • Operator Backed

Customizing a developer catalog or its sub-catalogs using the YAML view

You can customize a developer catalog by editing the YAML content in the YAML view.

  • An OpenShift web console session with cluster administrator privileges.

  1. In the Administrator perspective of the web console, navigate to AdministrationCluster Settings.

  2. Select the Configuration tab, click the Console (operator.openshift.io) resource and view the Details page.

  3. Click the YAML tab to open the editor and edit the YAML content as needed.

    For example, to disable a developer catalog type, insert the following snippet that defines a list of disabled developer catalog resources:

    apiVersion: operator.openshift.io/v1
    kind: Console
      name: cluster
            state: Disabled
              - BuilderImage
              - Devfile
              - HelmChart
  4. Click Save.

By default, the developer catalog types are enabled in the Administrator view of the Web Console.
