Overview

This guide describes how to generate new TLS certificates in EJBCA Cloud.

New TLS certificates are needed in the following circumstances:

  • EJBCA Cloud instance is shut down within the Azure environment and the Public IP is released by Azure.
  • An assigned IP is added to the instance in place of the Public IP for persistence.
  • A custom DNS name is desired.

When using tools such as the ClientToolBox, the following error may be displayed:

"No subject alternative DNS name matching <instance ip> found".

If this is encountered, perform the steps in this guide.
