we want to add new domain using site edit wizard like http://www.Testsite.com. However in site edit wizard it is coming like sub domain. what are the configurations required to get new domain for publication. For exapmle:Below is the TtmWebsite

BaseUrls             : {http://www.example.com}
CdEnvironmentId      : Preview_Environment
EnvironmentPurpose   : Preview
CdEnvironment        : 
ScopedRepositoryKeys : {Campaigns}
Id                   : Preview_Website
ExtensionProperties  : {}

when we are creating new publication using site edit wizard it is coming like http://example.com/testsite.

Thanks, Ramesh

  • Leave it empty? The idea here is that you want people to create many (micro)sites and the only way to make it easy to achieve is through "sub paths" for the sites (typically, the /en-us language identifier or so). You can change this afterwards in Topology Manager if needed.

The reason why we use pre-defined domains, and allow editors to create a sub-path, is to stop people from thinking they can launch a completely new domain without registering it, and wondering why it didn't work...

So, in your example, assuming that you own the example.com domain, you could identify which of the new sites should have the URL www.example.com instead of www.example.com/somesite and, in PowerShell:

Set-TtmWebsite -Id Preview_Website -BaseUrls http://www.example.com

This will overwrite what is previously set in TTM to match this new URL. You still need to do your DNS homework, but Tridion will be fine with this.

    For clarity: you get URLs like http://example.com/testsite from Site Wizard created Publications/Sites, because the Site Type is associated with a Website/app with Base URL http://example.com and it creates a Mapping with Relative URL /testsite. If you already have a mapping for root level, the Site Wizard forces you to specify a distinct Relative URL for the Mapping. Sep 12, 2016 at 17:44

    This means that if you want to create Sites with a different Base URL using the Site Wizard, you will have to define a new Website in TTM, create a new Site Type and associate it with your new Website. Sep 12, 2016 at 17:46
  • Hi Rick , Thanks for your answer. It is asking BaseUrls when creating new website using Add-TtmWebsite if we give base url www.testsite.com, again it is creating sub-paths in site edit wizard . Can you please provide steps with example for create Sites with a different Base URL using the Site Wizard. Sep 13, 2016 at 6:56
  • Hi Nuno Thanks for your answer, we have executed Set-TtmWebsite -Id Preview_Website -BaseUrls example.com command but how can we change PrimaryMappedUrl in Ttmmapping there is no parameter for PrimaryMappedUrl. Can you please provide steps for this. Sep 13, 2016 at 7:02
  • That's exactly what Rick mentions in his comment - the PrimaryMappedUrl is determined by your "SiteType"
