Regarding renewing the SSL certs automatically in author and publish instances.

Avatar

Level 3

Hi All,

We have enabled https 8443 port on both Author and Publish instances but while creating certificates we have mentioned 365 days now it got expired so we need to renew it. I need to automate the process by using Let's encrypt or Certbot but I am not sure how to implement it using those tools.

Please share the steps with any if any available.

Thanks,

Nagesh

If you can live with the fact, that the connection between dispatcher and AEM is unencrypted, you can just use the standard tools to keep the webserver certificate uptodate (the one which is end-user facing).

Not sure about the certificate creation but for upload to AEM, you can use a CURL command similar to below. More details at [1]

curl -u user:password -F "keystorePassword=password" -F "keystorePasswordConfirm=password" -F "truststorePassword=password" -F "truststorePasswordConfirm=password" -F "privatekeyFile=@localhostprivate.der" -F "certificateFile=@localhost.crt" -F "httpsPort=8443" http://host:port/libs/granite/security/post/sslSetup.html

Are you assuming a new certificate is already generated to upload ?

Hi, I have an idea on how to create certs and uploading the certs to instance but i need to automate the renewal process instead of recreating and uploading, etc. Please refer Let's Encrypt Project.

Thanks,

OOTB AEM does not have an SSL "automate the renewal process". I think that if you manage to automate SSL auto-renewal with Let's Encrypt Project", then with a curl script suggested by Jaideep you can achieve the last step of upload new cert to AEM.
