Brightspot CMS User Guide

Configuring base URLs


The following table describes when you need to configure base URLs for your sites as well as associated default values.

Type of base URL

When to set

Default if not set

Site URL As needed; as a best practice, assign a different Site URL to each of your sites.
  • For the Global site, same domain as where you installed Brightspot.
  • For other sites, same as Global site.
Preview URL You are using Brightspot in a headless environment. Available for the Global site only.
  • For the Global site, N/A.
  • For other sites, same as Global site.
Tool URL

If both of the following conditions are true:

  • Your Brightspot developer did not configure a tool URL.
  • Brightspot is sending notifications with links (such as text messages or emails).

Otherwise, configuring a Tool URL is optional.

Same as the site URL.
  1. Click menu > Admin > Sites & Settings.
  2. In the Sites & Settings widget, click the site for which you want to configure base URLs. The Edit Global or Edit Site widget appears.
  3. Click Main, and enter base URLs in the Default Tool URL field.
