About Badges about-badges

The Communities Badges console lets you add custom badges which can be displayed for a member when earned (awarded) or when they take on a specific role in the community (assigned).

In the author environment, navigate to the Badges console:

  • From global navigation: Tools > Communities > Badges

This console displays the badges currently available and from which new badges can be added.


Create Badge create-badge

A badge is created by uploading a suitably small image (72 dpi with a height ranging from 26-32 pixels) and providing a name. The badge image is stored in the repository at /libs/settings/community/badging/images and is automatically replicated to the publish environment.

If the publish environment is a farm of publishers, it is necessary to configure user sync.


  • Upload Image

    (Required) A badge image with a recommended size of 32 x 32 pixels at 72 dpi in either the JPEG or PNG format.

  • Name

    (Required) The badge name. It is the default Display Name and the repository node name. If the Name is not a valid repository node name, it is modified.

  • Display Name

    (Optional) The name to display for the badge in the user interface. Default is the unaltered text entered for the Name.

  • Description

    (Optional) A description for the badge.
