Identity Cloud

Data residency

Overview

When you sign up for Identity Cloud, you specify the region where you want your data to reside. This is key in helping you meet data residency compliance requirements while letting you place data as close to your users as possible.

Identity Cloud uses pre-configured ranges of IP addresses in Google Cloud Platform (GCP) regions. The IP addresses are not exclusive to ForgeRock.

Data regions in production tenant URLs

ForgeRock supplies tenant URLs for your development, staging, and production tenant environments. All tenant URLs include the organization name and tenant name you provided when you signed up.

Identity Cloud uses four-character region abbreviations in the production tenant URLs to indicate the region where data resides. Refer to the Regions section for the abbreviations.

For example, "usw1" is the four-character abbreviation for the us-west1 region. Suppose your production tenant environment URL is:

https://openam-mycompany-mytenant-usw1.id.forgerock.io

The presence of the region abbreviation "usw1" as part of the URL indicates that your data resides in the us-west1 region.

1. Backing up data to a secondary region is a limited availability feature. It is currently only available for regions within Australia, Canada, and Europe. In all other data regions, data is backed up only to the same region it resides in.
