If you are checking this question at 2018 like me 🙂 then this can be done easily, Settings -> Server settings -> Email settings -> PDF Report Settings

Why don't you just create a simple html header in the source code for your dashboard? This will then show as a header on your pdf

Prasanna,
Have you got any solution to this?

Including or excluding the splunk logo from pdf is the only configuration available for integrated pdf generation. This can be achieved using reportIncludeSplunkLogo in alert_actions.conf learn more about specs here.

To include custom logo, you will have to modify python code. NOTE: this is risky, not supported and will be overwritten upon upgrade.

Step 1. You will need to come up with an SVG for your logo

Step 2. Modify $SPLUNK_HOME/lib/python2.7/site-packages/splunk/pdf/pdfrenderer.py file. At the end of the file, change the variable assignment of __splunkLogoSvg_ to your new logo.

Step 3. Restart Splunk and generate the PDF with the new logo design.

Step 3 : no need to restart

I have tried with simple svg code in pdfrenderer.py. It works
However I am not able to get correct svg code for my company logo.
And i tried with one. But it ends up in some errors.
Is there any other way to embed the logo in pdf reports??

Thanks in advance
