Use this guide to configure a single realm with a collection of the common settings that will be used on all realms in the customer's implementation.

In most customer implementations, there are certain realm settings that a customer wishes to use across all realms. 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 in order to make future realm creation more efficient and to ensure that basic settings that should be applied to all realms are not misconfigured or forgotten.

Not all of the following settings are mandatory. You should only configure the settings that 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.

 DescriptionInstructions
SMTP

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

SCEPConfigure SCEP settings if SecureAuth IdP will be configured to deliver certificates via SCEP (either inbound or outbound)
ProxyConfigure Proxy settings if SecureAuth IdP will be integrated with a proxy server
User Input RestrictionsConfigure 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 (e.g. company name not allowed in password)
CSSConfigure CSS to present a uniform, custom visual interface across all realms
LanguagesConfigure 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.
