Hiding the logo in the API docs

Question

To remove the x-logo image from the openapi.yaml, do I need to hack the HTML or can I just remove the reference in the OpenAPI document?

Context

Redocly supports a specification extension x-logo that is added to the info object.

openapi: '3.0.3'
info:
  version: '1.0.0'
  title: 'Redocly Example API'
  x-logo:
    url: 'https://redocly.github.io/redoc/example-logo.png'
    backgroundColor: '#FFFFFF'
    altText: 'Example logo'
paths: {}

When the x-logo is present, Redocly will render the logo in the top left corner of the OpenAPI docs.

Answer

There are at least three ways to accomplish this task.

The two easiest ways are:

  • Remove x-logo from the OpenAPI file.
  • Use the hideLogo feature toggle.

Remove x-logo from the OpenAPI description

Given this initial API, remove the x-logo object.

openapi: '3.0.3'
info:
  version: '1.0.0'
  title: 'Redocly Example API'
  x-logo:
    url: 'https://redocly.github.io/redoc/example-logo.png'
    backgroundColor: '#FFFFFF'
    altText: 'Example logo'
paths: {}

After removing the object and rebuilding your docs, the logo will not be visible in the corner.

openapi: '3.0.3'
info:
  version: '1.0.0'
  title: 'Redocly Example API'
paths: {}

Use the hideLogo feature toggle

Sometimes you can't edit the OpenAPI file. Don't worry. Redocly has a feature toggle for that.

The feature toggle can be set in the Redocly configuration file.

This is an excerpt from the configuration file that demonstrates hiding the logo.

openapi.features:
  hideLogo: true

Now that you've seen how it works, try it with your APIs.
