You may need to rebuild the mobile app. Stephanie Louis, can you confirm one way or another?

There are 2 separate issues:

To get custom branding for mobile app - yes you have to rebuild.

If you want the icon on the banner to change, you have to open the banner section rule (linked in mobile tab) and change the logo there.

I had uploaded assets zip folder in app branding and customization by replacing the common assets folder pega svg file with my desired svg file from the sample pega assets zip.

I am able to take apk file .but the app icon is still pega default

I believe your may not be right. Here is the online help:

You are here: Mobile > Custom mobile application > Branding mobile apps > Contents of the assets package

Contents of the assets package

The package contains the following directories:

  • android - Contains graphics for different screen resolutions for the Android platform:
    • ic_launcher - An icon displayed on the desktop
    • icon_android - An icon used in the notification bar when the location services are active
    • splashlogo - A graphic displayed on the splash screen
  • ios - Contains graphics for different screen resolutions for the iOS platform:
    • Icon - An icon that is displayed on the desktop
    • LaunchImage - A graphic that is displayed as the splash screen
  • bootstrap - Where custom resources for the bootstrap application can be added to replace the default ones. The following settings can be customized:
    • Company logo
    • Background color
    • Foreground text color
    • Progress bar background color
    • Progress bar color

The other two directories are not related to custom branding. They are used to upload custom modules:

  • modules-android – Contains libraries and resource files needed for a custom module to run on Android devices
  • modules-ios – Contains libraries and resource files needed for a custom module to run on iOS devices

I do not have one, but I know a lot of customers have done that. You can download the sample from the online help. For example, here is the one I downloaded from 7.2 release. Stephanie Louis, can you confirm this has not changed or not.

Hi Kevin , I am getting operation fail message in building apk file.

Failure Reason

Exec Returned 1

Response to pradeepkp

this does not tell us much. were you able to build apk without custom branding? If yes, then you probably need to see if your zip is valid or not. More details from the logs should help as well.
