User Context App – Customization


Every customer has their own set of styles and color palettes, their own logos, branding and marketing information which should be added into applications or posts.

Customizations can be made by changing various components of the app configuration or styling configuration.

Some examples of customization include:

Replacing the standard logout or avatar icons

The standard display for the user context app is a set of buttons which allows the user to click their name to access their details or the logout icon to exit the portal or application.

Customizations can be made using the UI or adding to the JSON.

Note: Not all apps can be previewed in the Preview pane, for this particular example, all images are taken from<appguid>/

Currently the user avatar is yellow, and the logout icon is transparent. In this example, both icons will be changed.

Using the UI

You will need to have the replacement icons as SVG files available for upload for this exercise.

  1. Click the Assets tab.
  2. Click the Add new asset button.

  1. Click Select File.
  2. Browse to the appropriate folder, select the appropriate svg, then click Open.
