How to change color of an apps navigation bar?

Hi fellow splunkers,

I use splunk 6.4 and tried to change the color of an apps navigation bar.
The way I read about was to change the value in the /default/data/ui/nav/default.xml.

But I restarted splunk afterwards and it didn't work.
This is what I used:
nav search_view="search" color="#0000FF"

How can I solve this?

Thanks in advance!
Best regards,
pyro_wood

to modify the apps navigation bar you have to enter in [settings -- User Interface -- Navigation bar -- Default.xml].
In the first row you have to insert the option "color" like the following example.

<nav color="#3d7e3d">

If you do this by web interface you don't need to restart Splunk, but only to reload page.

Bye.
Giuseppe

PS: Am I somehow able to reapply the default.xml?
