Introduction to Portal Customizations

The VMware Horizon DaaS Portal is configured to allow for simple Cascading Style Sheet (CSS) changes to rebrand and change the visual style. By using CSS on the portal tenants can brand their portal to match their company identity.

To change the Enterprise Center Portal:

  1. Log in to Service Center:
  2. Mouse over the Tenants button and select Browse Tenants from the dropdown.
  3. Search for the tenant by name or look for it in the list. Click the Edit button on the right hand side for that Tenant.
  4. In the second section of the General screen, enter the External Stylesheet URL in to the field Style Sheet URL.

    This location should be a secure server to prevent security warnings. By default, there are two style sheets at the following locations:

    • https://yourdesktopportalURL/css/normal.css
    • https://YourenterprisecenterURL/cc/normal.css
  5. Place a new style sheet in the same /css/ directory and properly link it in the External Style Sheet URL field.

    For example: Make a style sheet called New.  https://yourdesktopportalURL/css/new.css should be entered into the External Style Sheet URL field.

Cascading Style Sheet Customizations

  1. Create a .css file in the location you want to use as the external style sheet URL, DO NOT name it normal.css. It will contain the basic style information.
  2. Elements:

    • #banner_portal - Use this to change the User Portal Banner
    • #banner ?- Use this to change the Enterprise Portal Banner
    • Body ?- Use this to change the font, background, color of the whole page

    CSS Example:

    body {
    background-image: url("")!important;
    background-repeat: repeat-x !important;
    font-family: arial, sans-serif;
    font-color: red; }

    #banner {
    padding: 0px;
    padding-top: 0px;
    margin-bottom: 0px;
    vertical-align: bottom;
    background: url(" /greatbanner.jpg ") !important;
    background-position: top left;
    background-repeat: no-repeat;
    min-height: 130px !important;
    margin-top: -10px !important;


  3. Save the .css to the location specified in the External Style Sheet URL field ( For example: https://desktopportalURL/css/ )
