How to convert a certificate with a full chain into three separate certificates

Environment

Release : 3.6

Component : IM Reporting / Admin / Configuration

Resolution

If you open up the joined certificate in a text editor you may see multiple entries that start with -----BEGIN CERTIFICATE----- and end with -----END CERTIFICATE-----.  Each of these "chunks" is a separate certificate.  If you copy from the first dash before BEGIN CERTIFICATE to the last dash after END CERTIFICATE for each one and generate a new file you will have 3 separate certificates and will be able to import them properly.
