How do I change the icon for my Jira Cloud app?

I have followed the Getting Started Guide for building a Jira Cloud app, and I was able to install the functional app into my own Jira Cloud account.  It's functional and working great, but I can't figure out how to set the icon in the Jira menu to what I want.  For example, here's how it looks now:



The PayPal Invoicing app is what I've added, but it gets this generic icon.  I'd rather change that to the PP logo/icon.  Any information on where I make this change would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks!

Hi @Drew Angell,

The icon module may work for you, try add in your descriptor JSON file like below: 

"icon": {
          "width": 16,
          "height": 16,
          "url": "/maps/icon.png"  // Location of your logo to be displayed

For more details see this example.


Thanks, this worked!

Hi, @Drew Angell 

It looks like @Angélica Luz right. Doesn't work this suggestion for added icon. I created plugin from get started page and try to change icon.

Hi Andrew,

The icons generated by add-ons it's not possible to change.
On Jira, we can only change the Logo and Favicon, but it will not be applied to add-ons.
We have a feature request suggesting the implementation of the ability to change the color of the add-ons, but not the icons:
I'm sorry that we can't be more helpful on it.


What about the Atlas CRM icon you see in the same screenshot I provided?  That's an add-on app, and they were able to make that icon like their logo.  That's what I'm wanting to do. 


I know it's not something that would be set from within any JIRA Settings panel like Logo and Favicon, but somewhere within the actual app development I should be able to set that.  I'm just not finding it in the documentation for how to set the icon of my custom app.

Hi Andrew,

I would give the same option as Rambabu, can you please test and let us know if it works?


Yes, I will be trying it soon and I will update you.  Thanks!
