Branding

Branding capabilities are optional and may not be available for your enterprise. 

Before Creating a Brand

Branding requires that you make design decisions, and select an image file for client components. You should prepare the image file before beginning the process of creating a brand. The logo file must be in PNG format, up to 250 px by 250 px, and up to 150kB in size.

The brand logo will appear in the iPad UI only, and only when the iPad is in landscape orientation.

After Creating a Brand

Once you have created one or more client or portal brands, you can publish them to production. Only one brand may be active at a time, and it cannot be deleted. (Deleting a brand could cause conflicts with deployed profiles that use an existing brand.)

Branding Your Client

A client brand includes a single logo that you can include in the client’s look and feel.

To create a new client brand for a supported platform:

  1. Log in to the Open Mobile Portal, and click the Configuration tab.
  2. Click Manage Brands, and then click Create Brand.
  3. On the Create a Brand tab, enter values for the following:
    • In Brand Name, assign a new brand name.
    • In Platform, select iOS.
    • In Software Version, select the software version from the dropdown.
  4. On the Image/Icon tab, click Browse, then browse to the logo file you wish to upload.
  5. Click Save.

Once created, you can publish the brand so that you can include it in your Open Mobile profiles.

To edit an existing client brand:

  1. Under List of Brands, select the brand you wish to edit.
  2. In the Actions column, click Manage.
  3. Enter the requested text strings, or upload the requested files.
  4. When complete, click Save.

A published brand may not be edited.

Publishing a Brand

A published brand can be included in your Open Mobile profiles, and can be shared with your child accounts. A published brand may not be edited.

To publish a brand:

  1. Create a brand (see above).
  2. From the List of Brands, select the brand you wish to publish. Then, in the Actions column, click Publish.
  3. On the Publish Client Brand page, click Publish, and then click Yes to confirm publication.

Sharing a Client Brand

Once a brand is published, it can be shared with your child accounts. These accounts will be able to include the brand in their own client profiles. (You can only share a brand one level down—that is, with your immediate child accounts.)

To make a brand shareable:

  1. On the List of Brands, select the published brand you wish to share. Then, in the Actions column, click Share.
  2. On the Share Client Brand dialog, select the direct child accounts with which you wish to share the brand.
  3. Click Share, and then click Yes to confirm sharing.

Applying the Brand to a Profile

Once you have created and published a brand, you can apply it to a profile.

To apply a brand and styling to a supported client:

  1. On the Configure a Profile page, under Brands and Features, click Configure.
  2. Click Select a Brand.
  3. Under Client Branding, select a brand from the drop-down list of previously created brands. Only a single brand may be assigned to a profile at one time.
  4. Click Save.
