Cloud Foundry Custom Domain

Hello everyone,

I'm having trouble setting up a custom domain for a Cloud Foundry application. In the SAP documentation I can only find the steps how to set it up in Neo. I had a look at the documentation by Cloud Foundry, but I do not have the rights to create the routes to my domain or create custom domains. I added a CNAME record with my DNS provider which points to the SAP domain, but using the custom domain the connection times out.

Can you help me out? I just started yesterday setting up Cloud Foundry, so please bear with me if the answer to this question is obvious.

    Hi Oliver,

    As the error message says, your user ID lacks authorizations to create shared domains.

    In the Cloud Foundry runtime, shared domains can only be created by admins. You can ask the CF instance admin to create the shared domain for you.
    If you are looking for creating an admin user for yourself, please have a look at this documentation .

    If you are not looking to share the custom domain across all the orgs, you can also opt for creating a private domain using the below-specified command which would be specific to an org.

    cf create-domain ORG DOMAIN

    A private domain can also be shared across other orgs and the org-level role required for creating a private domain is 'OrgManager' (no admin user required).
