UAA release

See docs in bosh-micro-cli.

Configuring required properties for UAA start-up

The properties below need to be generated explicitly per deployment of UAA release and are required for proper start-up and functioning of UAA. These are standard artifacts which can be generated using openssl. Please refer the topic below on how to generate a self signed cert.

SAML Service Provider Configuration

description: "UAA SAML Service provider certificate. This is used for signing outgoing SAML Authentication Requests"

description: "Private key for the service provider certificate."

JWT Signing Keys(verification key needn't be set as we derive it from the private key)

 description: "Map of key IDs and signing keys, each defined with a property `signingKey`"

 description: "The ID of the JWT signing key to be used when signing tokens."
 example: "key-1" 

Configuring UAA to run on https with SSL

By default UAA is configured to use SSL with a self-signed certificate and will be started on port 8443.

Using your own certificate

Add the following properties to your manifest:

  • uaa.sslCertificate: Specifies your SSL certificate

  • uaa.sslPrivateKey: Specifies your private key. The key must be a passphrase-less key.

Generating a self-signed certificate

  1. Generate your private key with any passphrase

openssl genrsa -aes256 -out server.key 1024

  1. Remove passphrase from key

openssl rsa -in server.key -out server.key

  1. Generate certificate signing request for CA

openssl req -x509 -sha256 -new -key server.key -out server.csr

  1. Generate self-signed certificate with 365 days expiry-time

openssl x509 -sha256 -days 365 -in server.csr -signkey server.key -out selfsigned.crt


  • The property uaa.port can't be set to 8989 because this port is used by BOSH to monitor the server.

Contributing to uaa-release

General workflow

  1. Fork the repository and make a local clone
  2. Create a feature branch from the development branch

    cd uaa-release
    git checkout develop
    git submodule update
    git checkout -b my_branch
  3. Make changes on your branch
  4. Deploy your version of uaa-release to test the changes
  5. Push to your fork (git push origin my_branch) and submit a pull request selecting develop as the target branch
