EJBCA Operations Guide

This Operations Guide contains information on how to perform day to day administrative tasks in EJBCA and is divided into separate sections for CA operations and RA operations:

  • CA Operations Guide: Information on setting up CAs and profiles, and for general configuration of the EJBCA instance.
  • RA Operations Guide: Covers enrolling for certificates, managing approvals, and certificate life-cycle.

For Administrators responsible for configuring and maintaining EJBCA installations, see the EJBCA CA Concept Guide for information on EJBCA concepts and configuration.

CA Operations Guide

The CA Operations Guide covers Certificate Authority Operations such as how to create, edit, and manage CAs, and information on End Entities, and setting up End Entity Profiles and Certificate Profiles.

RA Operations Guide

The RA Operations Guide covers EJBCA RA Management tasks and describes the EJBCA menu sections and the functions you can perform in the EJBCA RA GUI.

Command Line Interfaces

The Command Line Interfaces section includes information on the following EJBCA Command Line Interfaces (CLIs):

  • Local Command Line Interface (EJBCA CLI): The Local CLI can be run directly on the CA machine and contains many functions that can be used in scripts, or come to rescue when your Admin certificate has expired, or you have accidentally revoked your Admin privileges for the Admin GUI.
  • Local Database CLI: Accessing a database, export, and import, copy, verify audit log and OCSP monitoring.
