SharePoint 2016 How Change SuitBar’s Text PowerShell

Whenever you browse the OOTB site collection, you will see most popular SharePoint Logo on the Top Left bar. Now most companies want to change that to their own text and also want to place a Logo on that SuitBar.

With the Release of the SharePoint 2016, Microsoft Introduced new PowerShell cmdlets which will set these things in a couple of lines.

I will walk through the steps to change the Text, also, place a logo on the page.

Scenario:

In this example, I will use Central admin web app.and change the text from SharePoint to Central Admin ( Dev)

To View

To view the current Suitbar’s text, Let’s Run the basic first and see the what value returns.

$webapp = Get-SPWebApplication “http://ca.krossfarm.com

$webapp.SuiteNavBrandingText

and output for this will be “SharePoint”

To Change:

Please start SharePoint PowerShell (Run as Administrator) with farm admin account.

  • Run the  below command to change text to Central Admin (Dev)

$webapp = Get-SPWebApplication “http://ca.krossfarm.com

$webapp.SuiteNavBrandingText = “Central Admin (Dev)”

$webapp.Update()

After refreshing page, you will see it like this.
Suitbar-change

To Set the Logo:

New improvement, If we want to set our company logo( BTW it will display in the middle of Top suit bar). In order to set it, You need to upload the logo in the SharePoint site, you can link it using URL from other sites, but for better I would upload it in Central Admin shared Library and link it from there.

To start the PowerShell console and run the below commands

$webapp.SuiteNavBrandingLogoUrl = "http://ca.krossfarm.com1/Shared%20Documents/leaf-and-flames-logo.jpg"

$webapp.SuiteNavBrandingLogoTitle ="KrossFarm"

$webapp.SuiteNavBrandingLogoNavigationUrl = "http://ca.krossfarm.com"

$webapp.Update()

  • LogoURL is URL of the Logo
  • Logo Title Text
  • Navigation URL

After Refreshing the Page, You will see output something like this.
