According to this doc page, https://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/6.5.0/AdvancedDev/CustomizeLogin you can add your own logo. However it does not showup.

It appears they left some documentation out for the logo. You need to make one more change and restart.
The change is required in the web.conf. If you look at the web.conf.spec http://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/6.5.0/Admin/Webconf and in particulare the parameter

loginCustomLogo.

Here you need to set the path to
logo/.png or .jpg

So for my test my file was called appLogo.png and I placed it in a newly created directory called logo in splunk/etc/apps/search/appserver/static. So I added this line to the etc/system/local/web.conf

loginCustomLogo = logo/appLogo.png

Restarted and the logo on the login splash screen was replaced with this.

Hi i tried the same but it isn't working.
Step 1 Added an image applog.png in a new folder logo .
Step 2 Added loginCustomLogo = logo/appLogo.png in my web.conf file.
Step 3 Retart splunk server from Settings>server control>restart server.
If i am doing something wrong please help me out with this.

Thanks for pointing this out @nclancy!

I've updated our documentation to include the missing steps.
