Certificate

[required] The PEM-encoded certificate for a private CA. This may be a self-signed certificate in the case of a root CA, or it may be signed by another CA that you control.

CertificateChain

This parameter must be supplied when you import a subordinate CA. When you import a root CA, there is no chain.

Details

  3. Sign the CSR using a root or intermediate CA hosted either by an on-premises PKI hierarchy or a commercial CA..

  4. Create a certificate chain and copy the signed certificate and the certificate chain to your working directory.

The following requirements apply when you import a CA certificate.
