The general process to import a signed Certificate Signing Request or externally signed certificate and key is as follows:
- Open Ignition Dashboard.
- Log on to your Ignition Server.
- Click Configuration -> Site 0 -> Certificates -> Certificates.
- Click Import Certificate.
- Locate the signed certificate and click Open.
If the signed certificate matches an existing pending Certificate Signing Request, it must be in PEM format. The certificate is imported and the process is complete.
Otherwise the following dialogue will be displayed. Click Yes.
A certificate request for this certificate does not appear to exist.
Would you like to import the certificate anyway?
Via the Import Certificate dialogue:
Enter a Name for your certificate.
This is any uniquely identifiable string. Example 'IgnitionCert'.
Choose the Encoding format, PEM or DER.
The 'Certificate File' is auto populated with the full path to the certificate chosen in step 5 above.
Click Browse and select the 'Private Key File' corresponding to this signed certificate.
If the 'Private Key File' is encrypted, enter the passphrase in the 'Private Key Passphrase' field.
