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. 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):
- EJBCA Client Toolbox: Set of tools built as a stand-alone package, which can be put on any machine and run independently of EJBCA. Includes a Web Service Interface.
- EJBCA Validation/Conformance Tool: Allows running tests on issued certificates or OCSP responses to see that they match the configured criteria.
- 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.
EJBCA Batch Enrollment GUI
Information on the EJBCA Batch Enrollment GUI, a standalone Java desktop application used to enroll multiple end entities from certificate signing requests at once
ConfigDump Export and Audit Tool
The ConfigDump tool produces a human-readable YAML output, which allows you to hand-modify exports, and the tool is useful for change handling and auditing.
