Custom PowerBI connector : change icon of login window

Hi folks,

 

I am implementing a custom connector on powerBI. It works well ! The only issue I have is I would like to change the icon of the login windows (check red arrow) :

How can I add a custom icon in here ?

Thanks in advance.

 

Regards,

Hey @ochaoui,

Sorry I wasn't getting it. The icon you're pointing to is the icon that represents the kind of data source. There doesn't seem to be any way to change this.

Hey @ochaoui

To change the image you'll need to modify your MEZ  file for the customer connector. You can do this by changing the extension from MEZ to ZIP. From Inside the zip file is where the icon should be stored. You will also need to modify the m file to include the icons. So a section of it should be called the name of your API.Icons. If you have a UI Export definition inside the m file then add your images equal to SourceImage and SourceTypeImage. For this example displaying below I have a custom connector for the Power BI REST API. Where the name of the custom connector is PBIAPI.

Once you're done save the files back into the zip and modify the extension from zip back to mez and you should be good to go.

Hello @Watsky,

 

Thanks for your reply but it does not answer my question :).

As shown on my screenshot, I am not talking about the icon of the connector (I did already what you showed on your code). I am talking about the pop-up that asks you to log in to your identity provider :

In this pop-up, you have a name that apears and I configured that name via the XML file available in my connector. But ... I can't find on the web how to change the icon next to the name I configured. Does somebody now how to add it ?

Regards,

What a shame ...

Sometimes I wonder how these obvious things are not implemented on PowerBI.

What is microsoft doing ??
