A certificate signing request (CSR) is used to obtain a signed certificate for the server. After the request is created, the certificate signing request must be submitted to a CA to be signed. After the request is signed, the resulting signed certificate can be installed.
For Viewpoint and later, a self-signed certificate is visible after you click HTTPs Config.
  1. From the Setup list, select HTTPS Config.
  2. Under Certificate Signing Request, do the following under Step 1:
    1. Select Create File.
    2. Enter the following information:

      Common Name Domain name
      Subject Alternative Name [Optional] IP address or DNS name. Select "" to see the required format.

    1. Send the CSR to a CA for signing.
    2. After the request is signed by the CA, get the certificate bundle to your local system and extract its contents, namely ServerCertificate.crt, Intermediate.crt and Root.crt.
    3. Generate a PKCS#7 formatted file through the command “openssl crl2pkcs7 -nocrl -certfile /tmp/ServerCertificate.crt -certfile /tmp/Intermediate.crt -certfile /tmp/Root.crt -out /tmp/final.p7b” using ServerCertificate.crt, Intermediate.crt and Root.crt obtained from the CA
  5. Under Step 3, do the following:
    1. Select Install.
    2. In the Certificate box, select Choose File and browse to the saved final.p7b file obtained from step 4.c
  6. Select Install.
The name of the new certificate appears in the Certificate box.

HTTPS connections immediately start using the new certificate and no restart of the Viewpoint server is required.
