Add a Signing certificate to the CA Trust store on your SD Elements Appliance

To install a certificate to the trust store on your SD Elements Appliance, you will need to do the following:

For CentOS or RedHat-based appliances:

  1. Install the ca-certificates package: (yum -y -q install ca-certificates)
  2. Force an update on the appliance's CA trust store (update-ca-trust force-enable)
  3. Copy your certificate into the /etc/pki/ca-trust/source/anchors directory on the appliance.
  4. Import your certificate into the store (update-ca-trust extract)

For Ubuntu-based appliances:

  1. Copy your certificate to the /usr/local/share/ca-certificates directory on your appliance
  2. Update the CA trust store (update-ca-certificates)


  • The commands listed above require sudo/root permissions on your appliance.
  • If the certificate you are using was signed by a local CA, you will need to import the signing certificate from that CA as well.


For versions >=4.4 only:

To add custom CA certificates using the custom.yaml file, please refer to and refer to the role::server::custom_ca_certs parameter.

    This would frequently be encountered when integration with ALM systems such as Jira which would use a TLS/SSL certificate issued by an internal Certificate Authority (CA).
