Global settings

Under Settings > Global settings, you can manage Global URLs.

Global URLs are return URLs, and depend on each other.

info

${instanceId} refers to the Identity Cloud Instance ID. Upon buying an Identity Cloud subscription, you can select a unique Instance ID that is not already in use.

After the initial choice, the instance is created, and you cannot change the Instance ID anymore.

Allowed return URLs

Only the URLs added in the list of Allowed return URLs can be used as a valid URL with the return_to query parameter.

This is a security feature. The feature protects your users from being redirected to pages not explicitly defined by you.

Add each Allowed return URL on a new line.

The default value of the Allowed return URLs is generated based on your Instance ID:

https://${instanceId}.id.nevis.cloud

Default return URL

Default return URL is the fallback URL where the user is redirected after visiting the Logout URL in the following cases:

  • if the value of the return_to query parameter is not on the list of Allowed return URLs, or
  • if no return_to query parameter is used.

The user is redirected to the Default return URL after finishing the flow in the following cases:

  • if the value of the return_to query parameter is not on the list of Allowed return URLs, or
  • if no return_to query parameter is provided.

This applies for calls to the Logout URL, as well as the user invitation and password reset flows.

https://${instanceId}.id.nevis.cloud
info

Change the Default return URL to a URL of your choice, otherwise your users see an error page instead.

Logout URL

Visiting the Logout URL terminates the user session.

The Logout URL is generated based on your Instance ID, and cannot be changed:

https://${instanceId}.id.nevis.cloud/sso/logout

Optionally, you can redirect a user to a specific URL after the logout by setting the value of the return_to query parameter to one of the Allowed return URLs, for example:

https://${instanceId}.id.nevis.cloud/sso/logout?return_to=www.my-company.com
