Product: TIBCO Spotfire®
Invalid certificate warning is seen in the Webbrowser after configuring HTTPS on TIBCO Spotfire server.
While using a self signed SSL certificate for configuring HTTPS on TIBCO Spotfire server, the HTTPS URL might show invalid certificate warning even though the URL is accessible.
This issue is seen because a self-signed certificate is not considered as a trusted certificate by the browser. To consider it as a trusted certificate by the browser, the steps mentioned in the resolution section need to be performed. In order to resolve the issue, the self signed certificate must be installed under the Trusted Root Certificate Authorities path. This can be done by using one of the following options.
1) Open Internet Explorer Browser.
2) Go to Tools==>Internet Options==>Content==>Certificates==>Trusted Root Certification Authorities.
3) Click on "Import".
4) Click on "Browse" and select the certificate that needs to be imported (the one that is used for HTTPS configuration) and click "Next".
5) Check that the "Certificate Store" is set to "Trusted Root Certification Authorities" and click "Next".
6) Click on "Finish".
This can also be done through Microsoft Management Console(MMC) by following the steps below.
1) Open Microsoft Management Console (Start --> Run --> mmc.exe).
2) Choose File --> Add/Remove Snap-in.
3) In the Standalone tab, choose Add.
4) Choose the Certificates snap-in, and click Add.
5) In the wizard, choose the Computer Account, and then choose Local Computer. Press Finish to end the wizard.
6) Close the Add/Remove Snap-in dialog.
7) Navigate to Certificates (Local Computer) and double click on it.
8) Right click on "Trusted Root Certification Authorities" and select All Tasks==>Import.
9) Click on "Next".
