Personal choice of theme in SE


I know that theme in Slipstream Engine can be set using URL-parameter. Is there any other way of setting this? I.e a profile/parameter on the user?

What I would like to achieve is to have one web link to Slipstream, and that the user then can set their default theme (quartz light/dark). If it could be set using a personal parameter I could create a script button that makes this update, for example. It would match their ability to make a choice of theme in SAP GUI.

    Currently there is no standard setting, user parameter etc. in the backend that would change the theme on individual user basis.
    I could imagine some sort of scripting action that would set a new URL with the desired theme parameter and then reload the session, but this means that any user input until that point is lost.

    Hi Per,

    According to the SAP Help page, you can use sap-se-theme to define a theme via URL.

    I am not sure whether you can achieve what you are looking for. Usually a theme is created to have the corporate brand used across all applications.

    Due to the needs to frequently tweak my personas URL parameter, I have been thinking of this for quite sometime ... i.e. Something like URL shortener function within Personas. This is how it work

    a) Create a Z-Table storing user defaults (e.g. App, Themes etc) & global defaults

    b) When user launch Personas via a custom link, using the user id (HInt: var user =; I read the ERP Table for the desired parameter. Formulate the URL as necessary

    c) Open the URL (Hint: session.utils.openUrl(url))

    It works perfectly; the only thing I really dislike .. the openURL only open the App in the new Tab : (
