Custom Thumbnail Images on the Homepage

If a Server Admin wants to use custom images on the Alation Homepage, they can do so using an Article object in Alation. On how to add custom images using an Article object, See Use Custom Thumbnail Images.

You can also raise a ticket with Alation to add new images using configuration on the backend of the Alation server.
