Can I display Chinese characters UTF-8 on BI platform login screen?

Hi,

I want to put Chinese Characters (UTF-8) on my bi launchpad (platform 4.2).

https://blogs.sap.com/?p=86371 I was following this popular blog post from 2013 for customization of BI launchpad and https://help.sap.com/http.svc/rc/businessobject_product_guides_sbo42_en_sbo42_bi_custom_en_pdf/4.2/en-US/sbo42_bi_custom_en.pdf this guide PAGE 72 for customizing the text.

however when i try to put UTF-8 Chinese characters, they come out garbled and non-sense by my browser, even with chinese localization.

Can the BIlaunchpad.properties file handle Chinese Characters, and how?

Thank you,

Matt

    Hi Mattew,

    You can use the Unicode of the Chinese Characters in the BIlaunchpad.properties. For example:

    app.name=\u4e2d\u6587

    app.name.short=\u4e2d\u6587

    app.name.greeting=\u4e2d\u6587

    app.custom.product.name=\u4e2d\u6587

    And it shows like below:

    Regards,

    Ivan

    BI Platform is unicode compliant, so all this should be possible.
