Production Launch Process

Akamai provisions a customer’s Production environment when Configuration Acceptance Testing is complete. This environment is distinct from Development with its own Social Login application(s), Registration application, user data storage, API clients and settings, and flow configurations. Janrain will promote the approved flow(s) and schema(s) from Development to Production, but the following configuration tasks completed for Development must also be completed by the customer for Production:

  1. Provision New API Clients
  2. Update API Client Settings
  3. Configure Social Providers
  4. Whitelist Domains for Integration

The customer can then go live with the Akamai Registration UI at any time. Before releasing any website or application code to Production, update all JavaScript settings and direct API calls to your Registration application to point to the Production environment credentials. At a minimum, the following JavaScript settings must be updated:

Setting New Value
janrain.settings.appUrl Production Social Login application domain
janrain.settings.capture.captureServer Production Registration application domain
janrain.settings.capture.appId Production Registration application ID
janrain.settings.capture.clientId Production Registration API client ID
var httpLoadUrl Production Social Login application load file (http site)
var httpsLoadUrl Production Social Login application load file (https site)

In addition, if you have a custom application domain then you will need to replace the rpx_realm API client setting with the rpx_custom_realm API client setting. These API client settings can usually be found in the Default Settings.

If you are using additional features such as Single Sign-on, you may need to update additional settings. The Akamai Professional Services team supporting your deployment can provide guidance on what is required for your implementation.

Additional Production Releases

Once you have launched your first property into production, you may continue to update your Registration experience on the Development environment. Many changes can be released to Production on the customer’s side without assistance from Akamai. However, any changes made to the Registration flow using the Configuration API must be promoted to Production by using the Registration Builder in the Console tool.
