Platform

Platform Discovery

Redgate products primarily locate the Redgate Platform by looking for a well-known DNS address based on the machine's network domain.

Redgate Hosted

By convention, the hosted platform DNS for a machine running on the example.com domain will be:

example.redgate-platform.com

Self-Hosted

By convention, the self-hosted platform DNS for a machine running on the example.com domain will be:

redgateplatform.example.com

This DNS needs to be configured by your system administrator to point to the location of the Redgate Platform

Overriding the Platform DNS resolution using an Environment Variable

The URL of the platform instance can be overridden using the REDGATE_PLATFORM_URL environment variable.

When using the REDGATE_PLATFORM_URL variable ensure your enter a full URL including the protocol, rather than a DNS address

e.g. https://myinstance.redgate-platform.com

In Windows, this can be done from an administrator command prompt:

setx REDGATE_PLATFORM_URL "https://example.redgate-platform.com" /M
