Changing the Default Domain in edgeSuite

In edgeSuite, the admin user is part of the 'default' domain. The 'default' domain is used whenever '@<domain_name>' is not added to the username field on the login page.  In many instances it is helpful to change the default domain to the domain containing the majority of edgeSuite users. 

The following steps will guide you through changing the default domain and will allow users to log into edgeSuite without appending '@<domain_name>' to their username:

  1. Edit the account.properties file found in tomcat/webapps/ROOT/WEB-INF/classes/config/
  2. In the first line "account.defaultSuffix=default", change 'default' to the desired domain name
  3. Save the file 
  4. Restart edgeSuite
  5. Confirm that users in the new default domain can log in without specifying the domain in the username field
