Change Icon of InfluxDB sensor

I just integrated the influxdb connection to pull data from my database, which a sensor pushes there. This all works fine. But now I want to change the icon from the entity to something meaningsful, rather than the standard eye icon. When including the icon field in the configuration.yaml, homeassistant complains, that this field must not be included in the influxdb sensor configuration. How could I change the icon? Would I need to set up a template sensor, just to do that?

Thank you very much for the link. I did not find this.
I have to admit, that I still find the configuration of homeassistant confusing at some things are configured at various places. But nevertheless it is great to integrate all devices and information in one system :slight_smile:
