Managing SSL Certificates

Last update: 2024-01-30

Learn how to use Cloud Manager to check the status of your SSL certificates and how to edit, replace, update, and delete them.

Checking the Status of SSL Certificates

The status of your SSL certificates can be understood at a glance from the SSL certificate page.

  • Green - This status indicates that your certificate is valid for at least 14 days from the current date.

  • Orange - This status indicates that your certificate is due to expire in less than 14 days.

    • It is time to ensure you have a plan to renew your certificate and replace it by way of the Cloud Manager user interface to avoid possible site access or outages.
    • Cloud Manager will send regular notifications in the UI to alert you of an impending certificate expiration.
  • Red - This status indicates that the SSL certificate has expired.

Updating an SSL Certificate

When a certificate expires any domains that are in use with the expired certificate will no longer work. Updating your certificates through the following steps ensures that your domain continues to work as desired.

  1. Log into Cloud Manager at my.cloudmanager.adobe.com and select the appropriate organization
  2. On the My Programs screen, select the program.
  3. Navigate to Environments screen from the Overview page.
  4. Navigate to the SSL Certificates screen from the Environments screen.
  5. You can see a table with a row for each SSL certificate that has been successfully installed in your program. Click the ellipsis button at the far right in the row of the certificate you want to update and select View & Update.
  6. The certificate details are displayed and can be updated.
  7. Run the pipeline to deploy the updated certificate.
NOTE

A user must be a member of the Business Owner or Deployment Manager role to update an SSL certificate in Cloud Manager.

Replacing an SSL Certificate

An SSL certificate can be replaced by following the same steps as described in the section Updating an SSL Certificate.

Deleting an SSL Certificate

Removing certificates from Cloud Manager is a permanent action thatcannot be undone. As a best practice, Adobe recommends to save SSL files locally before deleting them in Cloud Manager.

Cloud Manager will not allow you to delete an SSL certificate that has one or more domains associated with it. All associated domains must be deleted before deleting the SSL certificate. See Managing Custom Domain Names to learn more.

Follow these steps to delete an SSL certificate.

  1. Log into Cloud Manager at my.cloudmanager.adobe.com and select the appropriate organization and program.
  2. Navigate to Environments screen from the Overview page.
  3. Navigate to the SSL Certificates screen from the Environments screen.
  4. You can see a table with a row for each SSL certificate that has been successfully installed in your program. Click the ellipsis at the far right in the row of the certificate you want to delete and select Delete.
  5. Confirm the deletion in the Delete SSL Certificate dialog.
  6. Run the pipeline to undeploy the deleted certificate.
NOTE

A user must be a member of the Business Owner or Deployment Manager role to delete an SSL certificate in Cloud Manager.

Pre-Existing CDN Configurations

If you have a pre-existing CDN configuration for your SSL certificate, there is an informative message on the SSL Certificates page, encouraging you to add these configurations via the UI so they are visible and configurable in Cloud Manager.

The message disappears once all pre-existing environment configurations are migrated using the UI. It may take 1-2 business days for the message to disappear.

See Adding an SSL Certificate for more details.

A similar message is also provided on the IP Allow List and the Environments pages for environments that have pre-existing CDN configurations for IP allow lists or custom domain names.
