SSRS Branding impact on PBI report menu

Hi... we're running PBI Report Server on premise to host our reports. We're now looking to apply custom Branding to our Report Manager: SQL Server 2016 Reporting Services Custom Branding Example

However, I'm can't seem to find which interface colourings impact the menu in Power BI reports. Our current brand is making the PBI top menu appear with White on Light Gray, which isn't ideal for readability as seen here:

 

 

Does anyone know which interface pairs are applied to the PBI menu?

Thanks in advance
Scott

It is "primaryContrast" for Power BI menu font color.

So the only meaningful sources of infor I have found are

 

https://blogs.msdn.microsoft.com/sqlrsteamblog/2016/03/20/how-to-create-a-custom-brand-package-for-r...

 

The relevant bit of this blog is

 

Primary Section – button colors, hover colors
Secondary Section – title bar color, search bar, the left-hand menu (when present), and text color for those items
Neutral Primary – Home background, Reports Area background
Neutral Secondary – Text Box background, Folder Options background, Settings Menu
Neutral Tertiary –  Site Settings backgrounds
Danger/Warning/Success Messages
KPI colors (Good – Green, Bad – Red, Neutral – Orange, None – Black)

 

There's an Excel editor with the style names that you download in this codeplex archive

I think the color for that menu is coming from the "primaryAlt4" setting.

Thanks Darren (and stpnet) for your reply. I'll be back onto finalising the branding next week, so will confirm back then.

 

PS - Darren I referenced some of your World Tour PBI slide deck this week when presenting some Data Viz concepts to a finance team I've joined this year. I thought you would like to know that your material is appreciated and used. Cheers.

Oh Cool. Thanks for taking the time to let me know, it's nice to hear when people have been able to take material like that and apply it in their workplace.
