Platform Configuration

I want to use custom HTML coloring for my WebLogic Admin Consoles.

Yes, you can configure the custom colouring for admin console by using myst

Prerequisites

  • Create a plain text file in myst custom action

    • name:console-style

    • location:console-style.sh

    • content:

      #!/bin/bash
      FMW_HOME=$1
      if [ -z "" ]; then
      FMW_HOME=/u01/app/oracle/product/fmw1221
      fi
      BORDER_COLOUR=$2
      if [ -z "$BORDER_COLOUR" ]; then
      BORDER_COLOUR="red"
      fi
      echo "Backing up general.css and console.css"
      CSS=$FMW_HOME/wlserver/server/lib/consoleapp/webapp/framework/skins/wlsconsole/css
      cp $CSS/general.css{,.`date +%Y%m%d-%H%M%S`}
      cp $CSS/console.css{,.`date +%Y%m%d-%H%M%S`}
      echo "Adding Production styling to console.css"
      cat <<EOT >> $CSS/console.css
      #product-brand-name:before {
      background-color: $BORDER_COLOUR;
      content: "PRODUCTION";
      font-size: large;
      margin-right: 20px;
      padding: 35px;
      }
      EOT
      echo "Adding border colour"
      sed -i "/background-color: #FFFFFF;/a \ \ \ \ border: 8px solid $BORDER_COLOUR;" $CSS/general.css
      exit 0
  • Create a Jython Action in the myst custom action

    • name: console-style

    • location: console-style.py

    • content:
