Issue/Introduction

I imported a federation signing certificate.  The certificate seemed to import successfully; however, I can't see the cert in the dropdown list of the signing certs in the AdminUI and thus I am unable to add signing cert to the federation partnership.

 

Cause

The certificate import was attempted within the Partnership, and something must have gone wrong during the import.  The imported certificate was not listed in XPSExplorer (neither in the CDS section nor the Federation->Certificates section).  The certificate was also not visible in the AdminUI's Certificates screen, however, the certificate did show up in a policy store export, both in CDS and Federation.  This lead us to the conclusion that the certificate could not be managed by the XPS tools in this state.

Environment

Release : 12.8

Component : SITEMINDER - FEDERATION

Resolution

Deleting the Partnership where the cert was unsuccessfully imported allowed the cert to be re-imported successfully without error (we imported via the AdminUI's Certificates screen rather than within the Partnership.
