Site specific configuration on Linux - CustomerID

Creating a site specific configuration for Ubisecure CustomerID can be done by editing the custom/ and other Ubisecure CustomerID configuration files. For more information about the configuration options, refer to Configuration - CustomerID.

Examples of the types of configurations required include:

  • defining user registration workflows
  • defining organization types and roles
  • defining what strong authentication methods are available
  • defining policies for login names

Generally it is recommended to use a very basic configuration first, ensure the system is fully configured and running and then modify the settings again later to match the use case requirements.

Execute the following commands to create and edit the file:

cd /usr/local/ubisecure/customerid/application/custom

Typical entries include:

Creating basic
# use email address as the username when logging in
# this requires that directory.account.login=mail is added to password.2 authentication method settings
# without this setting, the default uid is used as the username when logging in
general.login.attribute = mail

# where to redirect the user when an error occurs or user presses exit - generally home page of the target service
general.default.returnUrl =

# where to redirect the user after logout has been performed
general.default.logoutReturnUrl =

NOTE: This step is very important as some configuration options cannot be changed after this step.
