By default the UCS branding is used but it is possible to use a special branding.

Ini variables

The following variables can be added to the App Center ini file to define the App Appliance of an App:

A list of App IDs which should be installed into the App Appliance as well.
It activates the fast demo mode for the App Appliance. That means the system is configured with a pre-defined domainname.
The logo which is shown during the boot process.
A list of App IDs which are not shown in the App Center once the Appliances has been configured.
A comma separated list of modules which are displayed in the Appliance category tab in UMC.

The logo of the Appliance.
The Appliance is created with this memory size.
the name of the App Appliance.
A list of setup pages which shouldn't be displayed. By default, it is set to software otherwise the whole software packages have to be shipped with the Appliance. Possible values are software and role.
A list of packages which should be installed while the Appliance is built.
The primary color of the App Appliance.
The secondary color of the App Appliance.
