Purpose

To change the Crowd Base URL

Solution


For Crowd 2.12 and below

Changing the base URL for unproxied addresses

If you're accessing Crowd over the IP:

  1. Edit the <crowd_home>/crowd.properties file and change the following properties to alter the base URL:
    1. crowd.base.url 
    2. application.login.url

For example, old configuration:

#Tue Aug 01 19:20:30 BRT 2017
session.lastvalidation=session.lastvalidation
session.tokenkey=session.tokenkey
crowd.server.url=http\://localhost\:8095/crowd/services/
application.name=crowd
http.timeout=30000
session.isauthenticated=session.isauthenticated
application.login.url=http\://localhost\:8095/crowd
session.validationinterval=0
application.password=pGS5nqLO8CT94k7
 

New configuration:

#Tue Aug 01 19:20:30 BRT 2017
session.lastvalidation=session.lastvalidation
session.tokenkey=session.tokenkey
crowd.server.url=http\://192.168.132.36\:8095/crowd/services/
application.name=crowd
http.timeout=30000
session.isauthenticated=session.isauthenticated
application.login.url=http\://192.168.132.36\:8095/crowd
session.validationinterval=0
application.password=pGS5nqLO8CT94k7
 

For proxied addresses

If you're changing the base URL to work with your proxied address (Proxying Atlassian Server applications), use the example below:

Old configuration:

#Tue Aug 01 19:20:30 BRT 2017
session.lastvalidation=session.lastvalidation
session.tokenkey=session.tokenkey
crowd.server.url=http\://localhost\:8095/crowd/services/
application.name=crowd
http.timeout=30000
session.isauthenticated=session.isauthenticated
application.login.url=http\://localhost\:8095/crowd
session.validationinterval=0
application.password=pGS5nqLO8CT94k7

 

New configuration:

#Tue Aug 01 19:20:30 BRT 2017
session.lastvalidation=session.lastvalidation
session.tokenkey=session.tokenkey
crowd.server.url=http\://crowd.mydomain.com/crowd/services/
application.name=crowd
http.timeout=30000
session.isauthenticated=session.isauthenticated
application.login.url=http\://crowd.mydomain.com/crowd
session.validationinterval=0
application.password=pGS5nqLO8CT94k7
 


(info) For details on what each property relates to please refer to our documentation on the The crowd.properties file


For Crowd 3.0 and later

  1. Log in to the Crowd Administration Console.
  2. Click the 'Cog Icon' button in the top navigation bar, then General.
  3. The 'General options' screen appears. Type the new base URL in the appropriate field. For example:
    • http://mycompany:8095/crowd
    • https://crowd.mycompany.com

  4. Click the 'Update' button.

After the change, if there are other applications accessing Crowd, the crowd.properties file for each of those applications will need to be updated to reflect this change.

Also, after the change, add the publicly-facing URL and IP address at Crowd Administration > Applications > Crowd > Remote Addresses and at the Trusted Proxy Servers menu.
