Customizing UI

It is possible to customize styles for login screens to match your branding. This can be achieved by simple colors and logo override of the default them, or by full CSS replacement.


The simple override of colors and logo can be access in the admin UI in the Styles section. The available override values are

  • General tab
    • Logo: URL of your logo image. This will be constrained to 150x150. You should use an SVG or PNG with alpha channel to make sure this renders properly on your background color and in the Admin Portal, if you are using it.
    • Favicon: URL of your favicon.
    • App Icon Url: Url of the App Icon used within the Admin Portal

Keycloak Phase Two General Style Customization

  • Login tab
    • Background color: Hex color for background.
    • Primary color: Hex color for primary.
    • Secondary color: Hex color for secondary.

Keycloak Phase Two Login Style Customization

Full CSS

Full CSS can be added on the same page in the Admin UI. This stylesheet will be loaded last. Note that the use of a full CSS file will override the values from above. For more information on the styles used in the login pages, see Patternfly v5, and the Keycloak base and keycloak themes.

Phase Two has assembled a few custom themes that can also be used. View them in our Keycloak Themes Repository.

If you need a lightweight customization to the variables that Phase Two exposes but want to use custom CSS, try this

/* This will override built-in PatternFly Color Scheme */
:root {
/* Primary Colors */
--pf-v5-global--primary-color--100: #5b9fdd;
--pf-v5-global--active-color--100: #5b9fdd;
--pf-v5-global--primary-color--dark-100: #5b9fdd;
/* Primary Link Colors */
--pf-v5-global--link--Color: #5b9fdd;
--pf-v5-global--link--Color--dark: #5b9fdd;

/* Primary Colors - 20% darker */
--pf-v5-global--primary-color--200: ##1570c2;
/* Link Hover Colors */
--pf-v5-global--link--Color--hover: ##1570c2;
--pf-v5-global--link--Color--dark--hover: ##1570c2;

/* Secondary Colors */
--pf-v5-global--secondary-color--100: #edf5fb;

/* Adjust the colors for links specifically */
a {
color: var(--pf-v5-global--link--Color);
.login-pf a:hover {
color: var(--pf-v5-global--link--Color--hover);

/* Adjust outline or focus colors for inputs */
input[type="password"]:focus-visible {
outline: var(--pf-v5-global--active-color--100) auto 1px;

Manually by Realm attributes

  • _providerConfig.assets.login.css
  • _providerConfig.assets.login.primaryColor
  • _providerConfig.assets.login.secondaryColor
  • _providerConfig.assets.login.backgroundColor


  • _providerConfig.assets.logo.url
