Important before you start:
- Supported types: .keystore .p12, .pkcs12, and .pfx. We recommend the .pfx format. Check out how to export this type here:
- Ensure the inbound firewall rules have the HTTPS port enabled on the vScope server. Default port is 443.
- The “Key password” and “Keystore password” can be the same in some cases.
- If you don’t have an HTTPS certificate you can read more about how to generate one here:
You can set up the HTTPS certificate from Settings > Advanced > HTTPS. Simply follow the steps below:
- Enable HTTPS
- Upload your keystore.
- Provide the required information. Depending on the certificate keystore settings, the required fields may vary. In some cases, Key password and Keystore password have the same value.
- Click Save.
- If there is something wrong with the settings, an error description is shown next to the Save button. Resolve the errors and click Save again.
- If the upload was successful “Reload webservice” at the top.
- Restart the service and give it some time to start up again (approx. 10-15 sec).
- Any accesses via http://vscope will be redirected to https://vscope. If not:
- Make sure 443 on the vScope server is not blocked by a firewall!
Note: vScope is behind a reverse proxy.
- vScope is accessed via http://vscope.company.com which forwards traffic to http://vscope
In this case a certificate should not be enabled in vScope but rather in the reverse proxy which then forwards traffic to vScope:
- vScope is accessed via https://vscope.company.com which forwards traffic to http://vscope
We do not recommend both https in the reverse proxy and vScope at the same time and that setup is beyond the scope of this guide.
