How to set up a custom Icon for your Thing Based UI?

      Hi Jens,

      Thanks for pointing out the Cache clearing Tip. Now I understand why it does not reflect immediately after changing an Icon in my system.

      Also do we have any possibility to add our own logo's other than the logos provided by SAP ? I know we can upload an image for Product, what about Icons' in general.
