Whitelisting a Domain

There are legal considerations to be taken care of before whitelisting any domain on Sunbird. Such information will be updated soon.

Configuring the Domain

To enable a Sunbird instance to host content from external source:

  1. Set the sunbird_extcont_whitelisted_domains variable in the Player Service to whitelist an external website. Add the variable into the config file.

Example: To allow an instance to host content from an external source such as Wordpress, configure the environment variable in the following format: SUNBIRD_EXTCONT_WHITELISTED_DOMAINS: env.sunbird_extcont_whitelisted_domains ||’wordpress.com’

On successful configuration of the external domain, the content creators of the organization can upload content from external sources.
