Account theming

There are some customisation options available, which you can use to configure the visual appearance of the content presented to your end-users so that it matches your desired style. You can edit the colours used in the interface and add a custom logo. If you have created multiple accounts under the same organisation, it is possible to tailor the theme colours per account and even per domain.

Theming scope

These changes will not affect the Dashboard itself, just the screens that your end-users see.

Apply a custom theme


You must set the custom theme for Account first, then set the domain custom themes. If you set the account theme after the domain themes, it will overwrite the saved custom domain themes and your work will be lost.

  1. Using the Account and domains dropdown on the left, you can choose whether to edit the overall Account theme or select a domain to adjust the colour theme for each individual domain.
  2. The Selected theme dropdown will list all your created custom themes.
  3. The Use multiple themes for this domain toggle will allow you to select more than one theme from the dropdown. Select each theme you want to use and select Add theme. It will then appear in the list below.
  4. When you are happy with your selection, press Apply multiple themes to proceed.
  1. In the upper left corner, use the dropdown to select the name of the account you want to edit.
  2. On the Topics page select Theme.
  3. On the left, under Logo, select Replace to add your custom logo.
  4. Browse for your desired file or drag and drop your logo file on the highlighted area under Logo.
  5. Save the changes.
Please note

The maximum size for logo image files is 2 MB.

Specify a theme per request

If you have multiple themes for a domain or account, you can specify which theme you want to use per request.

The way you do this depends on which authentication protocol you use.

OpenID Connect

To specify a theme when using OpenID Connect, you must use the acr_values URL parameter.

Example: acr_values=theme:xfwfyv1340

In this example,xfwfyv1340 is the theme ID. You can find and copy the required theme ID from the Themes settings in the Dashboard (see screen example above).

See also the general acr_values description.

Authentication REST API

To specify a theme when using the Authentication REST API, you must use the optional themeId field when creating authentication sessions.

Example: "themeId": "agkaa12"
