SAP_CORBU Theme modification


We are implementing ESS\MSS on ECC EHP6 system with portal 7.3. We are interested in using the SAP_CORBU theme either for Portal, ECC WD4A applications, or both (ideally).

I have seen the SAP note 1681640 that States the following:

Theme Editing:
You cannot modify SAP CORBU using the theme editor.

But if we just want to change the Logo in the portal or make very minor changes, is there a way to do it? The theme does not show up in the Theme Editor tool?

I don’t see the point of making this theme available for the portal if we are not even able to copy and modify it according to our needs (at least the logo).

Any alternative solutions or suggestions would be appreciated.

    Hi Harman,

    I did not try this, but this might work:

    Copy the CORBU theme and unzip it. Replace the SAP logo with your logo. After a new version update the logo again.

    For the standard SAP tradeshow plus you can find the sap logo here:

    If you would like to know how to zip and unzip the file, please read my blog:

    • Hi All,

      As it looks now, I Don't think we are going to be able to use the SAP_CORBU theme. Even though we update the default theme in WD_Global_Setting to SAP_CORBU, but we still have to update iViews in the portal to set the property 'Supply Portal Stylesheet' = No.

      I don' t think I want to touch the SAP iView, and copying all these iViews will be a lot of work!

      If anyone has another suggestion to get around this requirement, we would really appreciate it.

    Hi Harman,

    SAP disabled editing SAP CORBU theme through Theme Editor.

    The only option I think off is if you are comfortable go and modify the associated CSS files.

    And do understand that with new SP packs they are going to make changes to CORBU Theme.

    So the changes done in CSS will be overwritten.

    Hope this helps.
