Autonomous Identity 2021.8.1

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

Customize domain and namespace:
  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: autoid
  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.
