Custom icons for index page?


Currently working on Business Client for desktop and want to change icons on the index page of the business client so that each section of the index page have its own icon (in a specific color depending on the business area). The icons must be individually custom-colored (for each role/box on the index page), but I cannot find a way of just pointing to other icons that those officially delivered by SAP. This does not seem to work:

as I cannot just point to a specific URL in the mime repository (even though the description suggests that it might be possible).

A similar thread also gives no hint 😭:

Is this really not possibly to set up custom icons for the index page in 2015 when UX is this much in focus without hacking the theme files of the mime repository?? 😈

Kind regards,

    Hi Rasmus,

    we know it's a painpoint. But with the the SAP UI Theme Designer it is finally possible to change the colors of the index page icons. This might be helpful in some cases.

    • Hi Rasmus,

      Yes, several customers / partners have given feedback along the same lines, and we take this seriously. We are currently researching how best to incorporate the feedback.

      In general, if you want to see how Fiori will possibly develop in future, there is are a number of Teched lectures, and a Roadmap Q&A, where you could raise exactly this question.

      Best wishes,
