Wizard Step
Description
Step 1: Enter Certificate Info
This step lets you specify the source of the new certificate. Specify how to obtain the certificate:
  • Retrieve via SSL Connection
    : Select this option to get the certificate from an HTTPS URL.
  • Import from a File
    : Select this option to get the certificate from a local file. Either enter the file path in the field, or use [Browse] to locate the file.
  • Copy and Paste
    : Select this option to copy and paste the entire certificate from the originating file into the code window.
You can only cut and paste a certificate that is in Base 64 PEM format. In the Code window, the Policy Manager will only add a pasted certificate that begins with "BEGIN TRUSTED CERTIFICATE."
If you encounter an error moving to the next step of the wizard, verify that the certificate information entered is correct and then try again.
Step 2: View Certificate Details
This step appears if the Policy Manager was able to obtain the certificate successfully.
  • Certificate Name
    : Optionally enter a descriptive name for the certificate.
  • Details
    : Examine the certificate details.
Step 3: Associate Actor Attribute
Enter a unique
Actor
attribute for the recipient certificate into the
Actor Attribute
Value field. Uniqueness is necessary because a recipient is identified in the Change WSS Recipient dialog by its associated Actor attribute.
In the Policy Manager, the certificate and Actor attribute are a locked combination that can be used multiple times by multiple WSS assertions.
