Cognos Analytics with Watson

  • 1.  Cognos Analytics icons

    Posted Tue June 21, 2022 09:17 AM
    I've been customizing my Cognos Analytics 11.2 home page with the help of Tim Aston's blog post (Customizing the Cognos Analytics 11.2 home page) but I was wondering about the icons that are used on the home page.

    When adding custom quick launch tiles, I also want to add icons to them, but I can't find anywhere a list of icons that are available to use. The existing icons seem to be under a class called 'ba-common-svgIcon' but I couldn't find any information about that. I tried adding my own icons too but that didn't work. Any help? Thanks!

    Hi Emily,

    The icons are based on IBM Carbon icons.

    In the sample from the blog post, the icon is:
    "icon": "common-collaborate-group",
    If you look in this page, you will see all the available icons:
    https://carbon-elements.netlify.app/icons/examples/preview/

    Well, at this time, I am not able to find in which file you can locate the icon name, such as common-collaborate-group... It might be a "dummy" name created in the javascript file, and you just need to add the same name to the file in image folder for your extension.

    Best regards,

    You can get the full list of SVG symbols by pasting this into the browser developer console (press F12) and pasting in the following:

    [...document.getElementById('images_ba_portal_common_icons_svg').querySelectorAll('symbol')].map(x=>x.id).join(', ')

    In my 11.2.1 environment I get the following list:
    'add-new_32, admin-administrator_24, admin-my_parameters_icon, admin-pause, admin-play, administrator_24, analytics_32, authoring-database, authoring-lock, authoring-page, authoring-query,
