Some end points require that you explicitly supply a public certificate for connectivity.  When creating a certificate component, you can import a .cer or .der version of that certificate.  But where do you get that file from?  If the end point has not provided, but you have access to their website, you may be able to download the required cert from your browser.

 

Navigate to the site's page in your browser.  Next to the URL, you will see an image of a "pad lock".

 

In Firefox:

  • Right click the pad lock
  • Click right arrow next to the site name
  • Select "More Information"
  • Click View Certificate
  • Go to Details tab
  • Click Export
  • Save the file as a .crt extension
  • Rename the file to .der
  • Create a new certificate component in the Build tab of your account and import

 

In Chrome:

  • Click the "3 dots / ..." to bring up the Settings
  • Click "More Tools"
  • Click "Developer Tools"
  • Go to the "Security" tab ( you may need to click >> to see more tabs )
  • Click "View Certificate"
  • Click Details tab
  • Select "DER encoded single certificate" and save
  • Create a new certificate component in the Build tab of your account and import
