APM Customization Logo



I want to customize a logon page for APM with our own Logo, it's diplayed fine in the preview but not on the real Logon Page.

I've read this Article:

and I checked the File Permissions, I only see the placeholder for the png.

When I inspect the Element in the Browser I get the path:

<img src="/public/images/customization/Common/AP-NVSBT1AP_general_ui/logo_image_de.png">

but the path on the F5 is:


any help, where to look, to solve this Problem?



Hi  ,

are you using Standard or Modern Customization and which BIG-IP version are you on?

I could successfully change the Header Logo in Access ›› Profiles / Policies : Customization : Quick Start/Basic.

In my test I was using 15.1.3 and I tried with Standard as well as Modern Customization.

The naming convention in K42811815 did not make a difference in my tests, I uploaded files named logo_xyz.png but also test_xyz.png.

I assume you clicked on Apply Access Policy?

On the filesystem the files are available in /var/sam/www/webtop/public/images/customization/Common/

[root@bigip01:Active:Standalone] Common # cd /var/sam/www/webtop/public/images/customization/Common/

-r--r--r--. 1 tomcat webservices 2448 Oct 14 17:52 logo_my_example.png

Once you go into one of the subfolders (e.g. access_demo01_general_ui) you will see that they contain a symlink to the logo in this folder.

Hope this helps.




Hi Daniel,

I'm on v

I realized the Symlink later, yes, I tried it with Quick Start/ Basic as well as with General and the Preview is just fine,

the files are correct:

I want to use the file logo_logon_bg.png

Looks all OK. Maybe hitting this bug?

Hi Daniel,


sorry, had some other other issues, now I'm back on the Problem.

I read about the Bug ID but I don't understand the workaround...


If I want to paste the URL of the Logo (SymLink) in a Browser-Window I get "ERR_CONNECTION_RESET"
