Report connected to scorecard: theme colors disappear when sharing with external users

Dear BI community,

We are recently using scorecards for our departments in the online environment and would like to share these scorecards with external parties as well.

However, when sharing the scorecards with external parties, the theme color of the connected reports looks quite off (turns pink). Is there something we overlooked in our approach?



  • External users have a direct link to the score card ✔️
  • External users can view the scorecard ✔️
  • External users can view the connected reports ✔️
  • External users have the same theme color in their reports as internal users 


From scorecard to report

Users are forwarded to the connected report by clicking on the report icon.

In the case of the external users, they will be forwarded to the connected report, however their report has another theme color (pink)




Original theme color internal users:                                                                           




Theme color external users






When external users enter the scorecard their URL contains a ctid. When forwarded from the scorecard to the connected report the ctid disappears from the URL and the theme colors as well.


Looking forward to your answers

Thanks a lot for the help.
