You can use the default icons that vRealize Operations provides, or you can upload your own graphics file for an object type. When you change an icon, your changes take effect for all users.


If you plan to use your own icon files, verify that each image is in PNG format and has the same height and width. For best results, use a 256x256 pixel image size.


  1. From the left menu, click Administration, and then click the Icons tile.
  2. Click the Object Type Icons tab.
  3. Assign the Object Type icon.
    1. Select the object type in the list with the icon to change.
      By default, object types for all adapter types are listed. To limit the selection to the object types that are valid for a single adapter type, select the adapter type from the drop-down menu.
    2. Click the Upload icon.
    3. Browse to and select the file to use and click Done.
  4. (Optional) To return to the default icon, select the object type and click the Assign Default Icons icon.
    The original default icon appears.
