Setting up a Domain Name / Vanity URL / Masked URL in Brightidea


 

Within Brightidea, the system administrator can set a custom vanity domain / vanity URL / masked domain for their system.  

    • For example, the admin system's Vanity URL would be: 
      • "https://yourcompany.brightidea.com" for Enterprise login
      • "https://yourcompany.brightidea.com/webstormname" for WebStorm login.
    • Important Note: For any custom secure "Masked URL", e.g. "https://challenge.mycompany.com", please contact your Brightidea Account Manager for more information. 
      • Secure masked URLs which have a non brightidea.com domain, will require a custom implementation on Brightidea servers.
  • To set this up, it requires configuration on the Enterprise level, and any underlying WebStorms - here is the step by step process: 

Enterprise Level - Vanity URL 

  • First, the system administrator navigates to Enterprise Setup ---> Site ---> Info
  • The administrator can choose up to THREE different domains for their Vanity URL.
    • yourcompanyname1.brightidea.com
    • yourcompanyname2.brightidea.com
    • yourcompanyname3.brightidea.com

  • The system administrator can type in the vanity URL of their Brightidea system
    • The administrator can type in "yourcompany.brightidea.com" 

WebStorm Level

  • Once the domain is set in the Enterprise level, all the administrator has to select is what they want their WebStorm Alias to be:
    • If the URL was yourcompany.brightidea.com/ideas - "ideas" is your WebStorm Alias
    • If the WebStorm alias is available to use - it will show a green "Available" message.
    • If the WebStorm alias is already in use elsewhere - it will show a red "Unavailable" message prompting the administrator to try another alias.
    • If the WebStorm alias is in use - it will shine a green "Active"
  • Don't forget to 'Save Changes'!

Important Things to Note:

  • By default, all URLs point to the homepage for Enterprise and WebStorm:
  • Please note that ALL email notificiations inherit the selected domain used.
  • Hyphens cannot be used in Vanity URL at this time.
  • WebStorm level reports will still reflect the old long URL.
  • If a user attempts to use different domains at the same time, their session will be killed.

    So if I have the domain name abc.com is it possible to have that domain name mask mycompany.brightidea.com/challenge1 or does it have to be challenges.abc.com/1

    Hello Damian,

    Both URLs can be used to access the WebStorm, (1) Standard URL: "mycompany.brightidea.com/challenge1" and (2) Custom URL with domain masking "challenges.abc.com/challenge1".

    Thank you,

    Ron Orlovetskiy

    Hi Ron,

    Is Vanity URL still available? I couldn't find it on my site admin page, the domain name is locked and not editable.

    Thank you.

    Best regards,

    Hi Roc,

    Yes, it's in your Enterprise setup area > Site > Info, select "Add New" underneath the first URL to add any other sub-domain names.

    Thank you,

    Hi Roc,

    Thanks for prompt reply.

    Yep I did that, but seems the brightidea.com is a fixed part. Our url is colleaga.brightidea.com.

    Thank you.

    Best,

    Hi Roc,

    That is correct, if you'd like to have a non Brightidea.com domain, that will require custom secure domain masking.

    Please reach out to your Brightidea Account Manager and they can help scope that implementation.

    Thank you,
