An issue I have come across in the past is keeping track of all the small CSS color changes etc. Fortunately, Service Portal supports the use of SCSS variables in the widget CSS. For example, instead of using CSS to define a color in every widget, set the dynamic Bootstrap variables in your Service Portal theme. You can also create your own custom variables to use in specific projects; i.e. $favorite-color. Here is an example of what it would look like in the Widget CSS: Now when a color needs to be changed across multiple widgets, you can change it in a single place. Service Portal also supports other SCSS features such as the use of Nesting, Mixins, and Operators. Note: The Service Portal SCSS implementation is a subset of the full SASS specification. To view a full list of default Bootstrap variables that you can customize, visit this link. If you would like to explore more, you can view the official ServiceNow documentation.
Modal windows in Service Portal are based on the BootstrapUI directives. For further documentation see: https://angular-ui.github.io/bootstrap/#/modal Below is a simple example of how to open up a modal window: Controller: [crayon-5d2e4ffaa5d94929977233/] HTML: [crayon-5d2e4ffaa5dad790138485/] Notes: Make sure the $uibModal service and $scope is included in the controller. In this example the modal template is just included in the HTML, but you could also set the "templateURL" property to an ng-template associated with this widget. You can manually pass in the scope to the template using the "scope" property.
This week the Service Portal team has released it's own 'unofficial' documentation which covers a lot of the major topics that were not included in the official documentation. This github repo is being updated regularly so stay tuned for docs regarding the various API's and architecture around portals, themes, pages, and widgets. So if you haven't yet checked it out, head over to the Github account and check out the docs: https://github.com/service-portal/documentation
Finally... the documentation for the Helsiki release of Service Portal has been released!!! I know many of you have been asking about this for a long time. Check it out: https://docs.servicenow.com/bundle/helsinki-servicenow-platform/page/build/service-portal/concept/c_ServicePortal.html
