Customize System Navigator menu icons

Applies to User Roles:

System Administrator

HPE Service Manager provides out-of-box icons that you can use to customize the icons in the System Navigator. To do this, you only need to specify the name of the icon in the Icon field of the corresponding menu record. You can perform this task from either the web client or the windows client. The customized icons apply to both the accordion mode and the sidebar mode of the System Navigator.


  • You can only specify an icon for a first-level menu item (menu group).
  • The System Navigator menu icons are available only when the enableSidebarMenu parameter in the web.xml file is configured as TRUE. For more information about the enableSidebarMenu parameter, see Web parameter: enableSidebarMenu.

For a complete list of the icons and their names, see Service Manager menu icons.

For more information about how to access the menu record, see Access menu records.
