Adding Security Certificates to a Deployment Server or Designer JRE for Outbound Requests

Occasionally you may need to add a security certificate to your application server or Designer JRE for making outbound requests to a secure server. This may be required when using the REST Service Call or Web Service Call builder through an SSL connection. In this situation the application server or Designer must trust the target server, which it does through the use of a certificate. The certificate will need to be installed on the application server that you are running your model on. Depending the server type and version there are different techniques for installing a certificate.
If you don't already have the certificate for the target server you will need to fetch it. One way to do that is to use Internet Explorer to export it.
Use the Following step to export the certificate to a file:
- Hit the target server with Internet Explorer using the HTTPS URL or HTTP that redirects to the HTTPS URL.
- Click on the "Lock" icon to view the certificate.
- Select the Details tab, and click the "Copy to File..." button.
- Export the certificate to a file using Base-64 encoding.
You should now have the certificate file on your local file system.
