Adobe IMS Configuration - Key Expiration


Level 2

I was able to successfully generate a key and link AEM to Target via When reviewing with my cyber security team, a question was raised regarding the 10 year expiration.

Is there a way to customize the expiration of the key that is generated? I would like to set it to one year if possible.


Thank you in advance for any feedback.

Hi @dpeters1 

If you have created a JWT auth type token, by default it comes with 365 days of expiration.
The keys will then be automatically downloaded with a default expiry date of 365 days. Once expired, you will need to create a new key pair and update the integration in the configuration file. Using the Option 2, you can choose to manually create and upload your Public key with a longer expiry date.

The instructions I followed had the key generated in Adobe Experience Manager:

Integration with Adobe Target using Adobe I/O | Adobe Experience Manager


When viewing the certificate in, the expiration shows 2031. It looks like the steps are a little different from what you provided so I will work through this document. Thank you!


Update: I am unable to link the key generated from back to AEM. Our AEM instance is not currently configurated in IMS. From what I can tell, I am only able to create a new key or use an existing one that was created in AEM, but not upload one created from Is there a web console configuration that can be edited for the default expiration?
