I wish to add a theme to a SharePoint site, that is hosted on a SharePoint 2019 Server on-premise.

I have followed these instructions as mentioned in the below link.


But this seems to work only for SharePoint Online and not for SharePoint 2019 on-premise.

Does anyone know how to achieve this?

SharePoint Site Design and Scripts are only available in Office 365 modern UI. It's not available in SharePoint 2019 on premise version.

See note in this URL: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sharepoint/dev/declarative-customization/site-design-overview

In SharePoint 2019 on-premise changing and applying of themes are quite same as SharePoint 2013 on-premise versions.

Please check below URLs for the same:
