Generate a certificate signing request (CSR)

To generate a CSR:

  1. Navigate to Infrastructure > Certificates.

  2. Choose Add > Generate a certificate request from the ellipsis menu and specify the required information. The information is exactly the same as described in Generate a self-signed certificate.

  3. After entering the information, click Generate. The certificate information view will open.

  4. Click Certificate Request in the middle pane to view the request data. Copy and paste it into a text editor and save the file for your records. This view also also allows you to import a public key at this time. You can submit the request to a certificate authority now, obtain the public key, and import it without closing the view, or you can do it later.

To submit the request to a certificate authority and import a public key:

  1. If the certificate request view is closed, open it (click the request in the main list and click Certificate Request).

  2. Copy the request and paste it into the certificate authority web page (or email it, in which case you will need to come back to this view later).

  3. Obtain the certificate file from the certificate authority.

  4. Click the Import public key button and finalize the certificate registration by specifying the key file and the certificate file.
