install ssl certificate from go daddy in qlik sense

im facing issues to install ssl certificates from godaddy

my steps:

1- generate the .csr using openssl as said in the pdf here: Generating Certificate Signing Requests for Trusted Certificates

2- import .csr to godaddy to receive the .crt files (there are two: 1cc55b4bfa47af38.crt and gd_bundle-g2-g1.crt). Acctually, godaddy give options to choose what server i will use the certificates (apache, iss, tomcat, macos, exchange, others) I chose 'others', but im not certain about that

3- generate the .pfx file using openssl as said here: Create a .pfx/.p12 certificate file using OpenSSL - SSL.com ps: i used the two crt files. The 1cc55b4bfa47af38.crt as -in parameter and gd_bundle-g2-g1.crt as the -certfile optional parameter


4- imported the .pfx file as said here: https://support.aginic.com/support/solutions/articles/14000031148-applying-an-ssl-certificate-to-qli...


5- At this moment, 4 certificates showed up. I moved the Root certificate to Trusted Root Certificate Authorities\Certificates folder as Jeffrey said here: Installing SSL Certificate for Qlik Sense.


6- Copied the thumprint into proxies in qmc and restart qmc


7-Tried to access the sevrer using https: and get the error:

NET::ERR_CERT_COMMON_NAME_INVALID

Could you help me?

Re: install ssl certificate from go daddy in qlik sense

just got the ssl certificate working. Here some highlights:

- the certificate was generated in go daddy to domain.com.br. And I will use the domain: bi.domain.com.br. Once we regenerated the certificate to bi.domain.com.br everything worked fine

- Once we have the right certificate, I downloaded from go daddy using the IIS server option and got 2 files: one .crt and another one .p7b

- Generated the .pfx certificate with open ssl using the .key (used to generate the .csr) and the .crt from go daddy


- Installed the .pfx certificate and input the thumprint on qmc


Now everything is working!!!

Re: install ssl certificate from go daddy in qlik sense

Hi Igor,

I have installed the certificate and was able to access the URL from Public area, But the issues is .. When I try to access the QMC by click the QMC icon on server it uses the Local URL and that shows me Insecure.

While installing certificate I have used Machine.. Was that supposed to be User?


A quick help is really appreciated. Thank you!!
