White Labeling Sisense

  • Dark
    Light

You can white label (rebrand) Sisense to fit into your native application or site through the Configuration Manager or the Sisense REST API, and replace existing icons and images with your own.

White labeling must be enabled in your license. Contact your Sisense representative or open a request through the Sisense Support Portal. Sisense also offers a premium white labeled version of the Sisense Mobile app that can be customized according to your branding (see Rebranding Sisense Mobile).

White Labeling Sisense from the Web Application

You can customize Sisense directly from the Sisense web application so that it displays your own branding.

To enable white labeling and made branding changes:

  1. In the Admin tab, from the left menu, select the White Labeling tab. 
  2. Enable White Labeling Configuration.
  3. Click Save and Apply.

Configuring White Labeling

The sections below explain how to white label your application.

General

This is where you set the page title.

Powered by Sisense

Note:
The Powered by Sisense option and the White Labeling Configuration options must both be enabled in the license for you to control the display of the Powered by Sisense label.

 A ‘Powered by Sisense’ label displays on all Dashboards and Widgets. You can control the label’s display if your license allows it:

  • When your license enables you to control displaying the "Powered by Sisense" label, the toggle is enabled by default and you can disable it to hide the label.
  • When your license does not allow you to control displaying the "Powered by Sisense" label, the toggle is enabled and cannot be disabled.
  • When the license does not include the Powered by Sisense labeling, this option is disabled and cannot be enabled.

To remove the label:

  1. Disable the Show Powered by Sisense Labeling setting.
  2. Confirm that the Enable White Labeling setting is enabled, and then click Save and Apply.

  • Favorite icon that displays on the browser tab .
  • Large and small logos that appear throughout the application. The application will automatically display the most appropriate sized logo for each location.

To add logos or a favicon, either:

  • Upload a file by dropping it onto the field, or click browse to search for it.
