Customizing the hostname in the Governance console URL

Customizing the hostname in the Governance console URL

By default, instances have a system-generated hostname in the URL. You can change the hostname to create a different URL.

You can also transfer a custom hostname from one instance to another.

If you change the hostname, update the watsonx.governance integration to use the new hostname for Governance console.

Changing the hostname of an instance

  1. Go to the UI where you manage your watsonx.governance instance.

  2. Click Environment.

  3. In the Custom hostname section, click the Edit icon.

  4. Type a name, and then click Save. Wait a few minutes for the change to take effect.

    The last character in the hostname must not be a minus sign or a period. {:note: .note} You can now launch Governance console by using the Custom hostname URL or the Fixed URL.

Transferring a hostname to another instance

If you have multiple instances, you can transfer a custom hostname from one instance to another.

You can also provision a new instance without the need to give users a different URL.

  1. Go to the UI where you manage your watsonx.governance instance.

  2. Click Environment.

    The Transfer hostname section lists the custom hostnames of your other Governance console instances.

  3. Click a custom hostname, and then click Transfer.

  4. Click Transfer to confirm the change.

When users go to the URL with the custom hostname, they are now using the instance that you selected in step 3.

Sharing the Governance console URL

As an administrator, you can share the Governance console URL with your user community. To get that URL, do the following steps:

  1. Go to the UI where you manage your watsonx.governance instance.
  2. Choose one of the following options:
    • If you customized the hostname, copy the Custom hostname URL.
    • If you didn't customize the hostname, copy Fixed URL in Environment.
