Java Web Dynpro applications do not appear in the user Theme (branding).

Hi Experts,

After patching java webdynpro applicatins are not picking customize themes. It is picking sap_tradeshow theme.

It creates the below CSS URL


As per my understanding, it should pick the URL something like below

sap-cssurl =

I have also checked the Web Dynpro property useWebDynproStyleSheet which set to false.

We patched to SP16 from NW 7.01.SP13

    Hi Hamendra Kumar,

    Kindly delete you IE browser cookies.

    Kindly following the steps,

    Step 1 - Login
    First things first you need to login to your SAP portal as the Portal administrator with system administration rights, this role has lots of power to messup the portal so be carefull:-)

    Step 2 - Navigate to Desktop & Display Rules
    Go to 'System Administration' tab and select the 'Portal Display' sub tab. Now click the 'Desktops & Display Rules' link.

    Step 3 - Administrators
    Open PortalContent->Portal Administrators->Super Administrators and double click on the 'Master Rule Collection' entry

    Step 4 - Add new IF Expression
    Next you need to add a second expression so that the administrator user uses a different SAP portal desktop. This helps create a safe environment for the administrator user to try out new options and functionality without effecting other users. Also might be and idea to give a second use admin authority and point it to a separate desktop as well, this way if you manage to mess things up to a point where you cant even login such as removing the content entirly, the second user can login and fix it.

    Click Add IF Expression

    It should default to [IF] [User] [=] [*],
    and [THEN] [Portal Desktop] [=] [pcd:portal_content/every_user/general/defaultDesktop]

    Change the If expression to: [If] [User] [=] [Administrator] (note the capital ‘A’) and click Apply

    The rules should then look like this:

    Step 5 - Change THEN statement
    Click on the 'THEN...' line of the rule you want to change. Now Open your content folder and right click on the portal Desktop you want to use and select 'Add Portal Desktop to Expression'. Now click Apply.
