Sense default theme: how to change it?

I am using Sense 3.2.1.

I have developed a custom Sense theme for my organization, as we have standard corporate colours. I did so by duplicating the following folder and customizing .json and .css files: C:\Program Files\Qlik\Sense\Client\themes\old\sense into another folder named "myorg".
The resulting theme, myorg, can be successfully used by appending "/theme/myorg" to any Sense URL.
However, I do not understand how to make it the environment default. I tried editing C:\Program Files\Qlik\Sense\Client\themes\default-themes.json referencing it, with no success.

Here is the content of the above mentioned default-themes.json file:

{

    "_description": "List of themes available in the sense client, specified as a value and label.",

    "default": [

        {

            "value": "myorg",

            "label": "Themes.Qlik.Myorg"

        },

        {

            "value": "sense",

            "label": "Themes.Qlik.Classic"

        },

        {

            "value": "card",

            "label": "Themes.Qlik.Standard"

        }

    ]

}

Has anyone been able to successfully change the default theme in Sense?

Re: Sense default theme: how to change it?

Hi,

we have the same issue.

I think, it is something in the repository.

In another case the customer uses an extension and had to update the license.

therefor he had to delete the ext. in qmc, past the license in the folder and import the zip file again.

(because the repository needs to be updated in this way)

So I think we have to do something like this in the QMC, but I can not find the right way.

Does anybody have an idea?

Thanks.

Re: Sense default theme: how to change it?

Hi, yes I have already read that article. It suggests three options.

1. that folder does not even exist, and anyway I have changed the .json file in my theme, not the .css file

2. it does not change the default theme, and I cannot ask the users to add that manually to the URL every time

3. it does not change the default theme and it is not really relevant to the question

Any ideas?

Thank you

Re: Sense default theme: how to change it?

Like the Answer from Gabriele, the customer dont want to add anything to the url.

It has to be possible, to change the default theme.

If we add the custom theme to the url it works fine.

We have shown some extensions, which can change the colors.

But the customer wants to use Sense by default and change some settings (like the theme).

Thanks

Hi Matteo,

Re: Sense default theme: how to change it?

For my version of Qlik Sense Enterprise (Sept 2017), I can reach with "?theme=name_of_theme" vs "/theme/name_of_theme"
