Configuring the server

WSO2 Identity Server (WSO2 IS) is shipped with default configurations that will allow you to download, install and get started with your product instantly. However, when you go into production, it is recommended to change some of the default settings to ensure that you have a robust system that is suitable for your operational needs. Also, you may have specific use cases that require specific configurations to the server.


After you install WSO2 IS, it is recommended to change the default security settings according to the requirements of your production environment. As IS is built on top of the WSO2 Carbon Kernel (version 4.4.6), the main security configurations applicable to IS are inherited from the Carbon kernel.



If you are configuring your production environment, be sure to check the Security Guidelines for Production Deployment before applying any security configurations.


See the section on Security in the WSO2 product administration guide for instructions on configuring security on your server. It includes the following sections:
