A newer release of this product is available.

Installing an HTTPS security certificate


You can upload and install a security certificate after a Certificate Authority has signed and returned it. The file that you upload and install must be a signed version of the existing self-signed certificate. A CA-signed certificate helps prevent man-in-the middle attacks and provides better security protection than a self-signed certificate.

Before you begin

You must have completed the following actions:

  • Downloaded the Certificate Signing Request file and had it signed by a Certificate Authority

  • Saved the certificate chain in PEM format

  • Included all certificates in the chain, from the Unified Manager server certificate to the root signing certificate, including any intermediate certificates present

You must have the OnCommand Administrator role.


  1. In the toolbar, click clusterpage settings icon, and then click HTTPS Certificate from the Setup menu.

  2. Click Install HTTPS Certificate.

  3. In the dialog box that is displayed, click Choose file…​ to locate the file to upload.

  4. Select the file, and then click Install to install the file.

Example certificate chain

The following example shows how the certificate chain file might appear:

<*Server certificate*>
<*Intermediate certificate \#1 \(if present\)*>
<*Intermediate certificate \#2 \(if present\)*>
<*Root signing certificate*>
