Introduction

In this post, I will explain how Administrators can allow End-Users to enhance their Fiori experience by using a different theme, than the one that is assigned to the launchpad site.

SAP Help documentation explain the above but it does it in several chapters, hence I thought to share a details step-by-step guide in this blog.

Motivation

Fiori launchpad has enabled End-Users to customize many aspects of their experience in its cloud version except changing the theme, till now!
Starting today, End-Users will be able to enhance their experience even more by selecting one of the themes that were crafted by a launchpad Administrator.

As a launchpad Administrator, you can enable launchpad’s users to use a different theme than the one you have assigned to it in just few steps.

Yet, once you’ve enabled users to use a different theme you still have a full control of the theming lifecycle:

  1. You determine which themes can and can’t be used by all End-Users.
  2. You can disable a theme from being after you enable it, even if it is being used.
  3. You can delete a custom theme that you have uploaded.
  4. You can force all End-Users to use the theme you have assigned to the launchpad.
