As an administrator, you can modify the look-and-feel of the CA Service Catalog UI. The following are the main categories of look-and-feel elements that you can modify:
  • Logos are image files that uniquely identify a company, business unit, or super business unit.
    These logos include the login logo, global logo, and business unit logo.
  • The login page enables a user to access the product.
    The same login page (including the login logo) applies to all users in all business units. For example, images and icons (
    except for
    logos), menus, and tabs. When applicable, these elements include colors, font name and point size, highlighting, and related specifications. You modify these look-and-feel elements by editing the Cascading Style Sheet (CSS) files for the login page.
  • A
    Modify the Themespecifies the settings for several look-and-feel elements. For example, images and icons (
    except for
    logos), menus, and tabs. When applicable, these elements include colors, font name and point size, highlighting, and related specifications. You modify these look-and-feel elements by editing the CSS files for the theme.
    The look-and-feel of the UI matches the theme of the business unit that you are logged in to. If theme is not set for a business unit, CA Service Catalog checks the business unit hierarchy and it finds a theme. Thus, if a business unit does not have its own theme, it uses the theme of its closest parent business unit. You can use the same theme for all business units. Alternatively, you can optionally create and use different themes for different business units.
  • Global page elements appear on several or all product pages. They include the product name, shopping icon, and footer. Global page elements are always the same, on every product page where they appear.
    Like the elements of the login page, global page elements apply to all users, regardless of their business unit. You
    cannot
    override them with business unit-specific settings. The global page elements also apply regardless of whether you have modified the themes of one or more business units.
    You modify global page elements by editing the includes_shared.xml file.
You can modify any, all, or none of the items in this list. This separation provides flexibility.
Verify that the changes you plan to make to each one are compatible with each other. Such consistency helps provide a consistent look-and-feel to users. For example, use similar colors and elements on both the login page and the product pages.
