Web designers created a gorgeous Enterprise Portal theme for your corporate portal, which reflects your corporate identity in a nice way. But, what a pitty, everytime you open a new UI task from your ID Mgmt console, the SAP standard blue-colored Web Dynpro theme will be used.
How to change that? It is easy as this: Open your favorite administration console and change following property:
- AS Java 7.0x: Open Visual Administrator -> Services -> Configuration Adapter -> webdynpro/sap.com/tc~wd~dispwda -> default Property Sheet -> property sap.theme.default
- AS Java 7.3x: Open NetWeaver Administrator -> Application Modules -> webdynpro/resources/sap.com/tc~wd~dispwda -> default Property Sheet -> property sap.theme.name.default
There, you have to enter the path to your theme directory you want to use (You are also able to find this folder accordingly in your file directory):
- AS Java 7.0x: http://<host>:<port>/irj/portalapps/com.sap.portal.design.portaldesigndata/themes/portal/<name_of_theme>
- AS Java 7.3x: http://<host>:<port>/com.sap.portal.design.portaldesigndata/themes/portal/<name_of_theme>
Restart you engine or the Web Dynpro Services, and all your Web Dynpro UIs will adapt to the selected Enterprise Portal Theme.
It is also possible to change the theme with adding a URL parameter:
Other default themes are also available, like SAP Platinum:
