Update SSL certificate in a QlikView Server

Good morning,
I need to update the SSL certificate on a QlikView version 12.30 server.
I don't find specific pages that explain the step by step procedure; the only ones I found refer to version 12.10.

The manual (April2020) has an ambiguous procedure, as it requires the addition of a line in the .config files, however these are in XML format and therefore I am a bit stuck, as I think it is necessary to insert the new configuration line in a different way than the one described.

I refer to what is reported in the manual

(page https://help.qlik.com/en-US/qlikview/April2020/Subsystems/Server/Content/QV_Server/QlikView-Server/Q...)

Where it says to add the line:
InstallingNewCertificatesAndCryptoKey = True

To the configuration files
C: \ Program Files \ QlikView \ Distribution Service \ QVDistributionService.exe.config
C: \ Program Files \ QlikView \ Directory Service Connector \ QVDirectoryServiceConnector.exe.config
C: \ Program Files \ QlikView \ Server \ Web Server \ QVWebServer.exe.config

Which are not simple text files (such as INI for example) but are structured XML files.
Any help? Can you give me a page where this procedure is better explained?

Thank you very much.

Marco

Marco,

You should add the key with the same format as the other entries in the xml file.

<add key="InstallingNewCertificatesAndCryptoKey" = True

Sorry, this wasn't the correct manual page for my problem.

The correct one is: https://community.qlik.com/t5/Support-Updates-Blog/QlikView-AccessPoint-and-QMC-with-HTTPS-and-a-cus...

and all is clear now!
