Setting the hostname for links in generated emails

Edge automatically sends emails in response to certain events as described in Customizing Edge email templates.

Many of these emails contain a link. For example, when a new user is added to an organization, the Edge UI sends the user an email containing a login URL in the form:


The domain is determined automatically by Edge and is typically correct for the organization. However, there is a chance that when the Edge UI is behind a load balancer that the automatically generated domain name is incorrect. If so, you can use the conf_apigee_apigee.emails.hosturl property to explicitly set the domain name portion of the generated URL.

To set the domain:

  1. Open the file in an editor. If the file does not exist, create it:
    vi /opt/apigee/customer/application/
  2. Set conf_apigee_apigee.emails.hosturl. For example, set conf_apigee_apigee.emails.hosturl as:
  3. Save your changes.
  4. Make sure the properties file is owned by the 'apigee' user:
    chown apigee:apigee /opt/apigee/customer/application/
  5. Restart the Edge UI:
    /opt/apigee/apigee-service/bin/apigee-service edge-ui restart
