You can view and change which ketstore is in use for SSL in the SSL panel of the Settings page Flowsettingsssl.png

Here you can use the drop down to view the certificates in the current keystore.

We highly recommend you use a different keystore name as future updates may overwrite the existing file.

In this example, we've copied the origional keystore (/opt/ros/resources/prepos/roskeystore.jks to /opt/ros/resources/prepos/roskeystore_new.jks) We've kept the same default keystore password "cashelros254"

All keystore management is performed using the java /opt/java/bin/keytool command.

Change into the folder with the keystore

cd /opt/ros/resources/prepos/

Generate a private key

keytool -genkey -alias tomcat -keyalg RSA -keystore roskeystore_new.jks -storepass password -dname "...."

Generate a CSR

keytool -certreq -keyalg RSA -alias tomcat -file certreq.csr -keystore roskeystore_new.jks  -storepass password

Import certificate into keystore

keytool -import -alias tomcat -keyalg RSA -keystore roskeystore_new.jks  -trustcacerts -file certnew.cer -storepass password

If you've change the keystore location or password, update anuview Flow to reflect this and restart the service.

Optional Generating a new keystore and self signed cert in /opt/ros/resources/prepos/roskeystore_new.jks

cd /opt/ros/resources/prepos/
keytool -genkey -keyalg RSA -alias selfsigned -keystore roskeystore_new.jks -storepass password -validity 360 -keysize 2048

Removing an unrequired certificate

keytool -delete -alias cashelros -keystore roskeystore_kw.jks


if a certificate is to work in Chorme it must have a SAN entry. This has been a requirement in Chrome for the last 2 years. It does not appear that other browsers have this requirement Generate Private key

keytool -genkey -alias tomcat -keyalg RSA -keystore roskeystore_new.jks -storepass password -dname "CN=gigaflow.company.net "

Gererate CSR

keytool -certreq -keyalg RSA -alias tomcat -file certreq.csr -keystore roskeystore_new.jks -storepass password -ext SAN=dns:gigaflow,dns:gigaflow.company.net

you can check your csr file to ensre that the san entires are present by

keytool -printcertreq -file certreq.csr -v


For client requests from the server you must add the certs to the JRE ca store. Password is changeit

keytool -import -trustcacerts -file [certificate] -alias [alias] -keystore JAVA_HOME/lib/security/cacerts


If you already have a crt and private key file you can create a new keystore by first creating a pkcs12 file

openssl pkcs12 -export -in [filename-certificate] -inkey [filename-key] -name [host] -out [filename-new-PKCS-12.p12]
keytool -importkeystore -deststorepass [password] -destkeystore [filename-new-keystore.jks] -srckeystore [filename-new-PKCS-12.p12] -srcstoretype PKCS12
