In CA Identity Portal you can Brand screens by changing Colors or Adding Pictures.

We have Identity Suite 14.1 vApp, and would like to change the font color on the username and password fields, but I am not able to find where this could be done. Our login page is using a dark background color that needs the text to be lighter, right now it is default to black. I looked in the sigma/admin side under branding, and tried several instances to add a custom CSS attribute but its not working. I looked through the docs and some from the community portal but its seems to say that this is not doable in vApp

Could someone point me where this could be done?
