The following steps outline how you can change the appearance of a Web application by adjusting portal themes:
Before you can use a modified portal theme, you first need to assign it to the user. Once the portal theme has been assigned, all BEx Web applications for this user are displayed with this changed portal theme.
Using portal personalization, a user can select a portal theme from the available portal themes if personalization is activated in the portal and the user has the required authorization.
Portal themes are assigned to multiple users using portal desktops. A portal desktop can be assigned to a user or user group. Assignment is made using the iView System Administration → Portal Display → Desktops and Display Rules. Different user groups can have different portal themes as their default portal theme.
As an administrator, you can specify the default portal theme in the default portal desktop:
The portal content for all users that use the default portal desktop is displayed using this own portal theme.
