SAP Fiori - Launchpad: Tile Error

Dear Fellow Members,

Currently, while using a custom made theme via UI Theme Designer for Launchpad, we fail to load the same custom made theme to individual tiles. Once any tile is launched, it opens up using the default theme.

Can someone please support us in identifying the way to fix this issue and have the tiles (individual apps) replicate the same theme that is being consumed by the Launchpad? (Hint: where is the Launchpad pulling the Target URL for the tiles from?)

Awaiting reply!

Thank You

    Hi Nikisha,

    How are you invoking the new theme you created?

    For a simple test, you can do a modification to the Launchpad url which overrides the built in theme.

    Go to the system with the theme repository and use t-code /n/ui5/theme_tool/

    Find your theme in the list and click on the tab labeled Info.

    Two lines will show up.  Hit Ctrl-Y to copy the first one (entire line).

    Paste that at the end of the Launchpad url (making sure syntax is correct).  That should override the assigned theme and work for each app that you invoke from a tile in Launchpad.

    Good luck, Mike

    Dear Mike,

    Thanks for volunteering to help. I already did put the Launchpad link along with the Theme Designer URL at the end before I raised this query.

    I am still facing the same issue. Only the Launchpad is showing up Theme and not the individual apps (in tiles).

    One thing worth noticing is that whenever I am launching a tile, it is opening another browser window and not showing me in the same window from where I launched it. And needless to say the new window is successfully opening the app, for ex: Leave Approval and showing the pending leaves but (1) Opening in new tab (2) Not replicating the theme.

    Is there something I must do in the Catalogue Builder etc, while creating the tile??
