Add SSL Certificates
To configure HTTPS, you need to provide an SSL/TLS certificate. The load balancer uses this certificate to terminate the HTTPS connection and decrypt requests from clients before sending them to the targets. You must also specify the security policy that the load balancer uses to negotiate SSL connections with clients.
You may upload one or more TLS/SSL certificates from the DCD via the SSL Certificate Manager.
Note: Please visit our website to find out how you can obtain SSL certificates.

  1. 1.
    In the DCD main menu, go to MANAGER Resources > SSH Certificate Manager.
  2. 2.
    Click + Create and enter a unique Name for your SSL certificate.
  3. 3.
    You may either paste the certificate inside of the text box or upload the file from your device. Please note that you must add a Certificate, Certificate Chain, and a Private Key.
  4. 4.
    Click Create. Your SSL certificate is added and visible on the right hand side list.
    • To delete a certificate, just select the Trash icon next to it.
Creating SSL Certificate Manager in DCD

Prerequisites: Prior to adding certificates, make sure you have set at least forwarding rule for an ALB. Learn how to create Forwarding Rules.
When your certificate has been added via the manager, it will become available for use by any ALB you create.
  1. 1.
    Click on the Application Load Balancer element and switch to the Forwarding Rules tab.
  2. 2.
    Select a rule and scroll to SSL Certificates. Click +Add Certificate.
  3. 3.
    Choose a certificate from the Select SSL Certificate drop-down. Click Add Certificate.
  4. 4.
    Your certificate has now been connected to the forwarding rule.
  5. 5.
    Make sure you provision any changes when ready.
You can always use the Create SSL Certificate option in the same way as above.
