Question:
How can we update the header on our CA PPM Test environment?
Answer:
To update the main page header in CA PPM, please use the following steps:

1. go to Administration > Studio > UI Themes
2. click on the name of the theme which is set as the default (the one with the radio-dial button selected)
3. copy the code from the CSS field into a text editor
4. in the text editor, locate the following section in the code:

/* Product name text */
#ppm_header_product span:before, #ppm_header_product_small span:before {
  content: "CA PPM";
}


4. change "CA PPM" to the text string that you want to use in the header - for example "TEST ENV - CA PPM".  
5. select the entire contents of the text editor and copy it to the clipboard
6. go back to the UI Themes screen in PPM and click the "Return" button
7. on the UI Themes list page, click the "New" button
8. create a name for your custom theme (use the name of the default and add the your company and the word custom to it to differentiate it), for example:
"MyCompany Teal and Grey"
9. fill in the ID field for example "mycompanytealgrey"
10. paste the CSS code from the clipboard (that you copied from the text editor where you edited the header text) into the CSS field
11. click the "Save and Return" button
12. select the radio dial next to your new custom theme to set it as the default
13. refresh the page - you should now see the updated header text
