Gateway Supplemental Certificates

In some cases you may need to provide additional security certificates so the gateway can communicate with other systems, such as databases or devices elsewhere on the network. These supplemental certificates can be added to a gateway by simply placing them in the following directory on the gateway's file system:

%gateway installation directory%data/certificates/supplemental

Once added, you will need to restart the gateway before the certificates will be used. 


You can manually install security certificates to all of our launchers.This is generally only required when the gateway hosting the application has SSL enabled, and is using either self-signed certificates or certificates signed by a certificate authority internal to a particular organization.

The process is listed below. Note that you will need to repeat the steps below for each applicable gateway. 

  1. First, navigate to the gateway web interface. 
  2. Download the certificate. Most web browsers provide this functionality, usually via the address bar or some other means. 
  3. Once you have a copy of the certificate, place the certificate into the following directory:
{user folder}\.ignition\clientlauncher-data\certificates

When a certificate is placed in the directory above, the launcher will attempt to automatically add the certificate(s) to the local KeyStore upon application launch.
