Customize the Domain and Namespace

By default, the Autonomous Identity URL and domain for the UI console is set to, and the URL and domain for the self-service feature is

  1. Customize the domain name and target environment by editing the /autoid-config/vars.xml file. By default, the domain name is set to and the target environment is set to autoid. The default Autonomous Identity URL will be: For example, we set the domain name to and the target environment to myid:

    target_environment: myid
  2. If you set up your domain name and target environment in the previous step, you need to change the certificates to reflect the changes. Autonomous Identity generates self-signed certificates for its default configuration. You must generate new certificates as follows:

    1. Generate the private key (that is, privatekey.pem).

      $ openssl genrsa 2048 > privatekey.pem
    2. Generate the certificate signing request.

      $ openssl req -new -key privatekey.pem -out csr.pem
    3. Generate the Diffie-Hellman (DH) parameters file (dhparam4096.pem).

      $ openssl dhparam -out dhparam4096.pem 4096
    4. Create a self-signing certificate.

      $ openssl x509 -req -days 365 -in csr.pem -signkey privatekey.pem -out server.crt
    5. Use your Certificate Authority (CA) to sign the certificate. The certificate must be server.crt.

    6. Copy the files to the /autoid-config/certs directory.

    7. Make the domain changes on your DNS server or update your /etc/hosts file locally on your machine.
