Associate a certificate for using your own domain for your application

How to associate a self-signed certificate or uploaded certificate to an application when you use your own external domain.

Before you begin

Add a certificate to EAA

When you use your own domain for your application and a certificate that matches the domain is associated with the application, users will be able to securely communicate to the EAA Cloud. Remember:
  • If you use an Akamai domain, you do not need to provide a certificate.
  • If you use your own domain, you can have Akamai generate a certificate for you or you can select to use an uploaded certificate from an authorized certificate authority (CA). Akamai recommends that you provide your own certificate. See Add a certificate to EAA.
Note: 14 days before the certificates expire, the applications will be changed to "Deployment Not Ready" state. You should renew the certificate before expiry and re-deploy the application, although the application would work fine during the expiration warning period.
Note: In some cases, you may need to provide an intermediate certificate from your domain provider. When pasting your standard certificate into the Cert field, simply paste in the intermediate certificate below it.
