Customization is at the core of Cortex — we offer more than 50 integrations out of the box, and allow users to pull custom data into the portal. With our new plugin framework, we’ve made customization in Cortex even more powerful, giving users the ability to change what their workspaces look like.
To make changes to your workspace, go to Settings and navigate to Appearance in the sidebar.
Under the Workspace tab, you can add your company’s logo and see what it’ll look like before you save it in the preview. We recommend the logo to be 200px by 80px.
Once you upload and save your logo, it will appear in place of the Cortex logo. You can remove the logo or upload a new one from this page as well.
The other four tabs — Header plugins, Dev homepage plugins, Entity overview tabs, and Entity side nav — give you the ability to embed a global or entity plugin as a tab on various pages. The header & dev homepage plugins must be global plugins whereas the entity overview tabs & entity side nav plugins will give users more context on the service, resource, team, or domain all in one place, streamlining the developer experience.
If you add a plugin under Header plugins, a shortcut to your plugin will appear on the main navigation bar along with Catalogs, Scorecards, Tools, Actions, and Plugins.
Likewise, adding a plugin under Dev homepage plugins will display your plugin on the developer homepage.
If you add a plugin to Entity overview tabs or Entity side nav, the plugin will appear on individual service, resource, domain, and team pages. You can add your plugin as a tab to the entity’s main page — along with Overview, Operations, and Code and Security — to display the plugin information when you first navigate to an entity.
When you add to Entity side nav, the plugin will appear independently in the side navigation bar in addition to being nested under the Plugins tab in the side nav.
You also have the ability to reorder and delete added tabs from the Appearance page.
