Configuring Cognos Analytics components to use another certificate authority
By default, IBM Cognos Analytics components use their own certificate CA for this purpose.
Use the following process to configure Cognos Analytics to use another certificate authority:
- Delete the existing key store
- Create the certificate signing request (CSR) files
- Import the certificate authority (CA) certificates
- Enable the external certificate authority (CA)
Changing the CA affects other installed components of Cognos Analytics, including Framework Manager, Planning Analytics, and more. The process of configuring an external certificate authority for these components is the same as for Cognos Analytics.
