BI 4.0 Launch Pad - Customize

There are a couple threads on here that deal with this, but the answers are vague and unhelpful. My question is this: I want to be able to add an additional graphic to the top left of the launch pad (the logo banner + custom image)after successful login and need to know how this can be achieved. I have already changed the logo banner, but I need to add some custom HTML code for my custom image. main.jsp is the page that needs to be changed, but it seems that this page isn't actually used. I think the page that is actually used instead of main.jsp is a compiled jsp page. This thread [here|http://forums.sdn.sap.com/thread.jspa?threadID=2125006], talks about using custom.jsp to achieve this. Is that for the actual login screen or the launch pad? I have played with the file, but have been unsuccessful in getting anywhere. Does anyone have any tips?

Thanks

    This thread is misguiding.

    The answer is in SAP Note 1586824.

    You can find the image files in

    BOINSTALL\SAP BusinessObjects\Tomcat6\webapps\BOE\WEB -INF\eclipse\plugins\webpath.InfoView\web\images

    banner_logo.gif - this changes the logo in the top left

    Additional steps are mentioned in the note, please check.

    Regards,

    Armands

      Hi Scott and Saints,

      thanks, it works!

      But I need to do one more thing: Adding a custom <meta>-Tag to the header (tell IE11 to emulate IE10 for launchpad until our update to 4.1).

      Customizing the main.jsp only affects content of the first iframe within Launchpad. My Tag has to be placed in the above layer to take effect.

      Any ideas where I can find the template file?

    Hi Scott,

    Thanks a lot for your info. Could you please explain what exactly we need to update the .java file located in that jar file and re-compile it.

    Thanks,

    Javed.

      One question. You kind of brush over this phrase;

      "Any java IDE will work, but you will have to make sure in your IDE that all jar file libraries are in your IDE classpath when compiling."

      How do you do that? I can use any Java IDE. There are a bazillion jar files all over the plugin dir. Also, how do we build the jar? I don't understand how you compile the correct jar file.
