Part III: Configure a blueprint realm


Use this guide to configure a single realm with a collection of the common settings that will be used on all realms to be implemented. Typically these might include: SMTP, SCEP, and proxy settings, as well as CSS settings, user input restrictions, and localization settings.

SecureAuth recommends setting up a blueprint realm during the initial implementation process to simplify the process of creating future realms and to ensure basic settings to be applied to all realms are not misconfigured or forgotten.


Configuration steps

Not all of these settings are mandatory. You should only configure the settings you will use in your implementation. For instance, if your implementation does not use a web proxy, there is no need to configure proxy settings on the blueprint realm.





Configure SMTP settings if the SecureAuth IdP appliance will be sending and receiving email (most users).

  • Overview Tab Configuration – Use the same settings you configured for the Admin Realm in the Advanced Settings > Email Settings section


Configure SCEP settings if SecureAuth IdP will be configured to deliver certificates via SCEP (either inbound or outbound).


Configure Proxy settings if SecureAuth IdP will be integrated with a proxy server.

User Input Restrictions

Configure User Input Restrictions in order to maintain a uniform set of rules regarding username/password/OTP/KBA length and to maintain a list of disallowed keywords (example: company name not allowed in password).


Configure CSS to present a uniform, custom visual interface across all realms.


Configure Languages to maintain any non-default language support settings across all realms.

Now that these settings have been saved to the blueprint realm, you can easily create new realms based on this blueprint by selecting Create Realms > Create New from Existing in the top menu of the Admin Realm.

What's next

SecureAuth IdP is successfully deployed and you should now have a basic understanding of how to use the Web Admin interface.
