ServiceNow Next UI: theme your instance - QUICK HACKS

to change the header colour:

apply it across the board:

  • go to sys_ux_style and create an entry as follows (give it whatever name you prefer, e.g. 'header UAT':

grab your own variant color code from

see below to copy paste code
  • go to now experience framework> themes, create a new theme, and reference the above newly created from UX Theme Styles tab

  • create new system property glide.ui.polaris.theme.custom and copy-paste the sys_id of the above new theme

apply it as a user preference:

similar steps to above, but set the sys_ux_style type to 'variant' (use insert and stay) then add it to the same theme as the core one. Log out and back in and go to user preferences> themes

other options

        "--now-menu--background-color": "51,172,255",
        "--now-unified-nav_menu--background-color": "51,172,255"

GlideRecord setValue

setValue(String name, Object value) Sets the specified field to the specified value. Normally a script would do a direct assignment, for example,  gr.category = value . However, if in a script the element name is a variable, then  gr.setValue(elementName, value)  can be used. When setting a value, ensure the data type of the field matches the data type of the value you enter. This method cannot be used on journal fields. If the value parameter is null, the record is not updated, and an error is not thrown!/api_doc?v=madrid&id=r_GlideRecord-setValue_String_Object
