  • Excellent post, thank you so much.

    My system landscape is on-premise.

    What is the best way, create a theme in my Fiori front-end or SAP Cloud Platform?

    Best regards, Victor.

  • Hey,


    good guide.


    We are facing the problem, that our fiori 3 theme is not shown on the portal. We had a theme before fiori 3 and the changes to the old theme apply perfect and shown on the portal.

    But we can't show the new fiori 3 portal theme on our portal page.

    Do you have any idea?



  • Hi! Hemalatha

    Thanks for nice article. We followed all the steps in our on-premise Hana system and build new custom theme. It is working fine in dev system but when transported to production theme is shown as distorted web site. Please check attached image.

    Are there SICF services or any other services needed for theme to work properly?

    Thanks and Regards,
