Some Questions

I have few questions about Cloud Portal.

  • Will SAP deliver a tool for themes? It is not easy deleting and adding css file with same name and changing it again and again. Overwrite feature must be.
  • I have created a simple custom application. Should I add this application with Url widget or something else? I couldn’t find documentation about this.
  • I couldn’t find some classes in downloaded css file. So I added them with !important tag in css file. Is it normal? (e.g. user-name class)
  • Now Cloud portal is based on English. Will SAP deliver another language packs?

    "I have created a simple custom application. Should I add this application with Url widget or something else? I couldn’t find documentation about this."


    If the application is an Open Social widget (preferable situation) then add OpenSocial widget (details are in the SAP NetWeaver Cloud Portal Administration Guide pages 4-5) and specify URL to Open Social descriptor.

    If the application is not Open Social then add URL widget (see same document) and specify URL to the web application itself. You can also add icon and organize widget under multiple categories.

    Cloud Portal is already delivered in the following languages:

    EN: English

    ES: Spanish

    FR: French

    JA: Japanese

    PT: Portuguese

    Just change your client locale and experience another language. We're open to more translations based on business opportunities.

    You right, some classes are missing in the theme CSS file. Basically, we split CSS file to a "theme", which you can consider kind of public API and private part. What does it mean?

    Theme contain classes that we'll do our best to maintain as backward compatible for our future versions that are coming every month. Thus if you created a theme, you can safely assume it will be compatible with future versions or we may introduce automatic conversion if required or in the worst case we'll notify you on particular incompatibilities and explain how it affects your theme and how it could be fixed.

    If you use classes, which are not part of the theme, but used in the Cloud Portal framework then they could be removed or altered any time w/o notification. It is basically kind of non-documented APIs and we may even decide to block this completely.

    What we expect from you is to provide feedback that you need additional classes in the theme and we'll try to help you.
