How to Change the Header's Background Color in New ServiceNow UI

With Saloni Suthar

In this ServiceNow tutorial, Saloni, a Technical Consultant at GlideFast, demonstrates how to change the header color in a ServiceNow instance.

Saloni starts by navigating to the "Sys_ux_style.list" table to create a new UX style. They give it a custom name and copy and paste a code snippet that changes the background color to red. After submitting the UX style, they proceed to add it to a custom theme.

Instead of modifying the existing Polaris theme, Saloni creates a new theme called "Custom Theme" and saves it. They navigate to the "App Theme" section and add their custom style to the theme. After saving the changes, they refresh the page but notice that the background color hasn't changed.

To make the new theme applicable, Saloni creates a system property. They create a new system property called "glide.ui.polaris.theme.custom" with a string type. They copy the code snippet from the custom theme and paste it as the value of the system property. After saving the system property, they refresh the page, and the header background color changes to red.

Saloni concludes the tutorial by mentioning that the header color has successfully been changed.
