IC88761: HOW CAN WE DYNAMICALLY UPDATE SYSTEM CERTIFICATES WHERE WE KEEP THE CERTIFICATE NAME AND ALSO THE SYSTEM CERTIFICATE ID?
Closed as program error.
Certificateificate management: Some services and adapters use system certificate ID, others use the system certificate name. This means that when the system certificate expires and a new one must be created, there is no simple way of updating all adapters to use the correct certificate. It should be standardized across all SI adapters that they use the system certificate name value. For example CDSA and HTTP Server/FTP Server adapter use the certificate Name. However, FTP and Http client adapter/Begin Session services use the certificate ID. Managing the certificates via HSM will not work as the object ID is still updated when the new certificate is imported into SI.
STRRTC - 350322 LM / LM Circumvention: None
Users Affected: ALL Problem Description: Currently the only way to update the System Certificate is to delete and create a new system certificate with same name. But this creates a new object id instead of using the same. Ideally, the same object id should be updated with new certificate details. Problem Summary: Currently, to update the certificate, user has to delete the existing certificate and then create a new certificate with same certificate name. Instead, update the existing certificate without deleting it by providing an upload option in case of key certificate and pkcs. In case of self signed certificate, the individual fields will be editable. Platform Affected: All
With the fix, when user edits a system certificate, he/she has to choose among Self Signed, Key or PKCS 12 certificate. Providing an upload option in case of key certificate and pkcs. In case of self signed certificate the individual fields will be editable. > Update the system certificate from UI - (Exception: In self signed edit - "Set Certificate Signing Bit" field could not retain its older value as same is not saved in certificate or database, this value is only used to generate the certificate and is not known once the certificate is created. Hence, this value could not retain its older value. In Key cert and PKCS cert - password and file uploads are not retained as per the practice.) On click of edit link from certificate search result screen, Take the user to a new screen which asks to chose among three options: o Self Signed Certificate o Key Certificate o PKCS12 Certificate Once the user chooses one of the above, the wizard will take care of showing the respective screens to edit the fields (self signed) or upload the .txt file (key cert) or upload .pfx file (pkcs12). Once user clicks finish, the same objective id will be updated. Delivered in: 5020500
