Import HTTPS and CA certificates

After installing the Control Room, import a certificate for HTTPS, Certificate Authority (CA), or both using the Windows or Linux command prompt.

You can import HTTPS and CA certificates in the following scenarios:
  • When you switch the Control Room from HTTP to HTTPS after Automation 360 is installed.
  • The certificates expire or need modification, for example, when you add a new server.

These instructions apply to both Windows and Linux installations.

Procedure

To import a CA or HTTPS certificate for configuring the Control Room for secure connection using the command prompt, perform the following steps:

  1. Run the command prompt in administrator mode.
  2. Navigate to the Automation Anywhere installation path.
    The default installation path for Windows is C:\Program Files\Automation Anywhere\Automation360.
    The default installation path for Linux is /opt/automationanywhere/enterprise
  3. Enter or paste the following at the command prompt:
    • For Windows HTTPS certificate, enter the command:
      jdk11\bin\java -jar certmgr.jar -appDir "C:\Program Files\Automation Anywhere\Automation360" -setServerCert "C:\Users\cradmin\Desktop\test_automationanywhere_com.pfx" -privateKeyPass <PFX Password>
    • For Linux CentOS HTTPS certificate, enter the command:
      jdk11/bin/java -jar certmgr.jar -appDir "/opt/automationanywhere/enterprise" -setServerCert "/home/<user>/test_automationanywhere_com.pfx" -privateKeyPass <PFX Password>
    • For Windows CA certificate, enter the command:
      jdk11\bin\java -jar certmgr.jar -appDir "C:\Program Files\Automation Anywhere\Automation360" -importTrustCert "D:\<user name>\My Downloads\CA31.cer"
    • For Linux CentOS CA certificate, enter the command:
      jdk11/bin/java -jar certmgr.jar -appDir 
                              "/opt/automationanywhere/enterprise" 
                              -importTrustCert "CA31.cer"
  4. During the installation, if you did not accept the default and indicated you want to upload your own (self-signed) certificate, add the following parameters to the boot.db.properties file that is located in the config folder, in the Automation Anywhere installation path.
    • Windows file location:

      root:\Program Files\Automation Anywhere\Automation360\config\boot.db.properties

    • Linux file location:

      /opt/automationanywhere/enterprise/config/boot.db.properties

    Parameter:

    trustServerCertificate=false
