Factory standard domains

Factory standard domains allow Site Factory platform admins to add a default domain pattern in addition to the standard .acsitefactory.com domain to each existing site and site collection managed by Site Factory. The default domain pattern applies to all newly created sites and site collections within your Site Factory instance.

Important

Factory standard domains should only be used as a replacement for the Acquia-provided default domains, and should not be used to serve live sites.

You can add SSL certificates to your factory standard domains using the existing self-service SSL functionality.

Prerequisites

  • A domain owned by your team with DNS access.
  • DNS setup for domain patterns.
  • You must have the platform admin role for your Site Factory instance.

Using factory standard domains

To configure factory standard domains, do one of the following:

  • Access the <factory_url>/preferences/site-factory-management/factory-standard-domains page.
  • In the Site Factory user interface, navigate to Administration > Site Factory management section > Factory standard domains management.

The resulting Factory standard domain management page displays the following four fields where you can define domain patterns:

  • Factory Standard Domains - Production sites: The patterns for creating sites on production environments.
  • Factory Standard Domains - Non production sites: The patterns for creating sites on non-production environments.
  • Factory Standard Domains - Production collections: The patterns for creating site collections on production environments.
  • Factory Standard Domains - Non production collections: The patterns for creating site collections on non-production environments.

You can define multiple patterns for each of these categories using comma separated values.

Factory standard domain management

The permissible placeholders are:

[sitename]: Replaces it with the current site or collection name.

[environment]: Replaces it with the current environment name, such as prod, test, and dev.

[tangle_alias]: Replaces it with the current tangle name for multi-stack factories.

Note

  • When changing factory standard domain patterns, all existing and newly created sites and/or collections are backfilled with the newly defined patterns.
  • Non-production patterns defined in production do not automatically propagate to non-production environments. To achieve this, you must stage your site using the wipe target environment feature.
  • Factory standard domains do not appear on the Sites UI page.
