Configure logo, colors, and system defaults for UI16

You can use the Basic Configuration UI16 module to brand your instance with your company logo and colors and set basic system defaults. This is the best place to start if you are setting up your instance for the first time or if you have recently enabled UI16.

Before you begin

To prepare for completing basic configuration, gather the following information.
  • Obtain the company banner image to use in the header. The image can be high resolution, but when it displays it is scaled based on the aspect ratio. It scales to a maximum of 20px high.
  • Get your company's brand color hex or RGB numbers, typically from your marketing department. Use them to decide how to configure the UI background colors.
