Design Studio custom CSS in local mode cannot see

Login to DS via BI platform startup. Create a custom CSS file , published to BI platform. If I execute the DS application from BI Launchpad, it shows the output based on Custom CSS file. When I run the same application from DS designer , in local mode, it does not show the expected output of custom CSS file.

Any one has seen this behavior?

And also if i launch the DS application in local mode and design application , how do i publish that to BI platform which i developed in local mode.

    Hi Jawahar,

    Actually the application that you have created in BI Platform can be executed locally through your design studio application while it is open.

    Can you show as how you executed application locally?

    To import a local application to design studio use import option in application menu.(Application --> Import)

    For importing application the .biapp file, css file are have to be compressed in zip format.

    For more information you can look into this thread https://archive.sap.com/discussions/thread/3774251

    Let me know if you need any help in this.

    Thanks,

    Poovarasan

    Thanks Poovarasan. My 2nd issue is clarified with the link you have provided.

    Can you show as how you executed application locally?

    Open the DS from desktop. Open the DS application from BI platform. See the 'Green Arrow" click on it, Select the option "Execute locally"

      Hi Jawahar,

      The CSS will work when you open DS application in your desktop.

      Do you see CSS file assigned in application in properties?

      Thanks,

    Are you trying to download application and execute locally? Use File > Export, and include the CSS files. Then you should be able to execute locally

    Also, make sure to double check the path of your CSS file, as a local version of your report would have a different path for the CSS than the report published on the BI platform.

    Go to the root of your application in the Outline panel. In your properties pane, under "Display", you should notice a file path for "Custom CSS". You can click the "..." button to make sure your CSS file is being properly referenced.
