How to install a new SSL certificate on Traditional Platforms?



  • Matthew Magee

    I'm not following these instructions; I'm also very new to CloudBees/Jenkins.

    We need to enable SSL between the load balancer and the application.

    I've got a .cert, .chain, and a .key file given to me that was created by our centrify server.

    Can a working example be given on how to make this work?

    Hi Thomas,

    Default keystore password as mentioned in the notes in section B. It is most likely: changeit

    Windows OSS Jenkins Install Details

    cacerts bundle location: "C:\Program Files (x86)\Jenkins\jre\lib\security\cacerts"

    keytool.exe location: "C:\Program Files (x86)\Jenkins\jre\bin\keytool.exe"

    keystore password: changeit

    Make sure to restart jenkins service after adding certificates: net stop jenkins; net start jenkins
