2399257 - How to create a fallback portal theme in UI Theme Designer


  • The theme fallback mechanism checks if a theme can be applied to an application and selects a fallback theme if the specified theme is not valid.
  • Whether a given theme is supported by an application depends on the underlying UI technology and its version. The theme fallback mechanism automatically detects a valid theme for an application. A default fallback chain of SAP standard themes is used by the fallback mechanism. In addition, you can define a chain of custom themes as fallback themes. Refer to Theme Fallback .
  • You would like to define/create a fallback portal theme using UI Theme Designer in a new LESS mode structure Portal, which could be used later in a circumstance of current theme is not valid for application to be rendered for example.
  • This KBA introduces you with the detail steps of how to create fallback theme in detail.
