Include a one-step-tool to create all required icons for custom CI types

Custom CI types can have their own icons.

To enable correct display of such icons in Java UI, UCMDB Browser and CMS UI, one has to create (at least) five different icon files in three formats and in multiple locations.

This is not very user friendly.

The request is to enhance the UCMDB installation with a tool which allows to design a new icon and which then creates e.g. a package or a filesystem structure to load such icons into the correct locations with the correct names.

Yes, we need a tool that will help us make custom icons for Java UI, UCMDB Browser and CMS UI. 

 

Also, we need the ability to have the UCMDB Browser icons change when a value for an attribute chnages, like in the Admin client!!!

Me again,

thinking about my suggestion (which was demanded by a customer, actually) I would better love to have one single icon.

We have reviewed this idea and determined that it isn't a fit for our product roadmap at this time.  We do expect to have improvements in the ability to use icons as the java UI disappears over time replaced by the CMS UI, but it is a long ways away on our roadmap at this time.
