SAP Portal: Migrate custom themes 7.0 to 7.3

Migrate the custom themes is a relative simple process.  The first step is to export a theme from the 7.0 system then import it in to the 7.3 system.

Exporting theme from 7.0 SAP Portal System

  • Choose System Administration – Portal Display – Theme Archive
    • The themes would be listed under Export Themes
  • Click the theme to be exported and specify the export directory for the ZIP file

Importing theme to 7.3 SAP Portal System

  • Choose System Administration – Transport – Transport Themes
  • Specify the path of the theme that you want to import or choose Browse to select a compressed ZIP file of a theme
  • You have the option to overwrite a theme if you’re re-importing the information
  • Choose Import

When themes are imported, the portal automatically reloads, upgrades, if necessary, generates, and saves the themes in the PCD and in the file system. This process also happens when the portal or the design service restarts. If a restart is planned, you can save the time required for this process during import by going to SAP NetWeaver Administrator and changing the value of the following property in the design service to false
