https certificate issue

Hi

We wanted to access https://<server>:<port>/index.html and the https services are enabled on our sap system (abap+java). The issue is while accessing the link it ask for a secure digital certificate which is understandable. We do not want every system in the company to manually add the certificates to their local system however wanted to push a digital certificate from our sap system itself so the users in the domain doesnt have to bother about accepting it and putting it in their trusted certificate area. The certiticate required to push from server has been provided by our companies local CA and we are wondering where in VA we should put it so it resolves the issue. Is there anything additional needs to be done after cert implementation. Please advise.

Regards,

Pankaj

    Hi Pankaj,

    Certificate acceptance prompt is general, this is becuase you redirecting to HTTPS and when you accept the certificate it inform the browser to use secure tunnel for making cumminciation with backend system. This is in general, there is no such option to stop asking for for accepting the certifticate.

    I was also having the same query when first time i was impliemeting the HTTPS scenario, for this i raise the OSS with SAP. Where i got to know that this is not an concept of SAP , this is a browser concept to for prompting the certificate acceptance.

    Thanks

      Hi Pankaj,

      As Anil said this is the feature of browser you use. If you use a CA from Verisgn, akamai etc.. your browser will not prompt the user to accept the certificate. These certificates are expensive and have to be renewed every yr.

    Hi,

    The certificates are configured in the Key Storage under the Visual Administrator. Please, look at the documentation below:
