Changing the product branding

By default, the graphical user interfaces that HCP provides for tenant and namespace access are branded for the company Hitachi and the product Hitachi Content Platform. The elements that show this are:

  • In the Tenant Management Console and Namespace Browser:
    • The company logo that appears in the top right corner of each page except the login page
    • The product name that appears:
      • In the title bar of the browser window for all pages
      • In the top portion of the login page
      • Above the top-level menu on every page except the login page
    • The product name abbreviation that appears before the product name in the title bar of the browser window for the login page

    The following figure highlights the branding elements that appear on each page of the Tenant Management Console except the login page.

  • In the HCP Search Console:
    • The company logo that appears in the top right corner of every page except the login page
    • The product name that appears:
      • In the title bar of the browser window for the login page
      • In the top portion of the login page

You can change these elements to show your own company logo and product name. You can also reset them to show the Hitachi and HCP branding.

For the company logo, HCP supports BMP, GIF, JPEG, JPG, and PNG images that are no larger than two MB. For best results, the logo should be 77 pixels wide by 19 pixels high and should have a transparent background. Logos with other dimensions are resized to fit in the available space.

The logo for the Tenant Management Console and Namespace Browser appears on a white background, so text on a transparent background should use a dark color. The logo for the Search Console appears on a medium gray background, so text on a transparent background should use either a very light color or a very dark color.

To view and change the branding settings for an HCP system, you use the Branding Settings page in the HCP System Management Console. To display this page, in the top-level menu, select Configuration Branding.
