A favicon (short for Favorite icon) is an icon show in the web browser's address bar, tab and next to the page name in a list of bookmarks.
The default favicon in QlikView is the Q "eye", shown when browsing, for example, the AccessPoint.
This icon may be replaced by a customized icon if desired.
Disclaimer: This will require altering and customizing code shipped with QlikView Server. All customization is done at your own risk and is not covered by QlikTech Support or Maintenance Agreements. Please backup any files prior to modifcation.
To replace the original Q "eye" favicon with a customized icon, do the following:
- Ensure you have a compatible favicon.ico icon file. This may be generated on, for example, http://www.favicon.cc/
- On the QlikView Server, browse to C:\Program Files\QlikView\Server\QlikViewClients\QlikViewAjax\htc\Images
- Backup the existing favicon.ico and copy the customized icon file generated to the above location
- Open a web browser and go to the AccessPoint to verify the icon has been replaced/updated. Note: you may need to clear the browser cache for the new icon to appear
