3.6 Configuring Workbench to connect over HTTPS
To connect Workbench to a LiveCycle server over HTTPS,
you must ensure that the certificate authority (CA) that issued
the public key will be recognized as being trusted by Workbench.
If the certificate is not recognized as coming from a trusted source,
you must update the cacert file located in the [Workbench_HOME]/jre/lib/security
Note: [Workbench_HOME] represents the directory where
you installed Workbench. The default location is C:\Program Files
(x86)\Adobe\Adobe LiveCycle Workbench ES4\workbench.
Ensure that you connect to HTTPS by using the name that is specified
in the certificate. This name is typically the fully qualified host
3.6.1 To update the cacert file:
Ensure that you have a copy of the Secure Sockets
Layer (SSL) certificate. Either contact the administrator who configured
the SSL server or export the certificate by using a web browser.
To export the certificate, open a web browser and
log in to Administration Console, install the certificate in the
browser, then export the certificate from the browser to a temporary
storage location (or directly to the [Workbench_HOME]/jre/lib/security directory).
Copy the certificate to the [Workbench_HOME]/jre/lib/security
Open a command prompt window, navigate to [Workbench_HOME]/jre/bin, and
then type the following command:
keytool -import -storepass changeit -file [Workbench_HOME]\jre\lib\security\ssl_cert_for_certname.cer -keystore [Workbench_HOME]\jre\lib\security\cacerts -alias example
changeit is the default password to the cacerts keystore.
certname is the certificate you selected in step 1.
example is the alias you choose for the certificate.
This value can be changed.
When prompted to trust the certificate, type Yes and
hit the Enter key. The keytool proceeds to import the cacerts
file in to the [Workbench_HOME]/jre/lib/security directory.
Close and restart Workbench for the changes to take affect.
