Role required: admin

About this task

Note: The MID Server does not support SSL when importing data from an integration, such as an LDAP server.


  1. Open a command prompt and navigate to the folder containing the JRE keytool.
    This is the location of the JRE you installed. An example path might be: C:\Program Files\Java\jre1.8.0_161\bin
  2. Import a certificate into the MID Server's cacerts keystore, using this command:
    keytool -import -alias <certificate alias> -file "<path to certificate>" -keystore "<path to the JRE>\lib\security\cacerts"

    For example, you might enter: keytool -import -alias MyCA -file "C:\myca.cer" -keystore "C:\Program Files\Java\jre1.8.0_161\lib\security\cacerts"

    Note: The keytool prompts you for a certificate password. If the certificate is for a CA, the keytool also asks whether to trust the certificate authority. To add a certificate to an instance, see Upload a certificate to an instance.
