Configuring the Subsystem

Now that you have copied the XML template from the Installation page, you need to paste this into the standalone.xml file that resides in the standalone/configuration directory of the application server instance on which your application is deployed.

  1. Open the standalone/configuration/standalone.xml file and search for the following text:

    <subsystem xmlns="urn:jboss:domain:keycloak:1.1"/>
  2. Modify this to prepare it for pasting in your template from the Installation page:

    <subsystem xmlns="urn:jboss:domain:keycloak:1.1">
  3. Within the <subsystem> element, paste in the template. It will look something like this:

    <subsystem xmlns="urn:jboss:domain:keycloak:1.1">
      <secure-deployment name="WAR MODULE NAME.war">
  4. Change the WAR MODULE NAME text to vanilla as follows:

    <subsystem xmlns="urn:jboss:domain:keycloak:1.1">
      <secure-deployment name="vanilla.war">
  5. Reboot your application server.

  6. Go to http://localhost:8080/vanilla and click login. The Keycloak login page opens. You can log in using the user you created in the Creating a New User chapter.
