Issue/Introduction

The request is for a certificate to enable HTTPS calls from a client application to a DevTest Virtual Service.

The Devtest HTTPS Virtual Service endpoints need to have SSL enabled.

Cause

N/A

Environment

All supported DevTest releases.

Resolution

A keystore with a certificate can be configured in the listen step of the Virtual Service. 

There are some keystore files available in DevTest (webreckeys.ks, webserver.ks and vse.ks) that you could use.

The password of the webreckeys.ks keystore is passphrase

The password of the webserver.ks keystore is changeit

 

You can export the certificate using keytool or Portecle.

 

Alternatively, it is possible to create your own self-signed certificate:  Refer to section "Use Your Own Self-Signed Certificate" in the documentation of the DevTest release you are running.
