Configure trust on the ALM Octane server

Configure trust on the ALM Octane server when you connect to any remote server (such as a database server, an LDAP server, license sharing with ALM, and so on) over a secure channel.

Note: When connecting to a database server with SSL, or an LDAP server, over a secure channel, you must configure trust before starting the ALM Octane server.

Configure trust

This section describes how to configure trust.

To configure trust:

  1. Obtain the certificate of the root and any intermediate Certificate Authority that issued the remote server certificate.

  2. Import each certificate into the ALM Octane java truststore using a keytool command.

    • Locate your <java_home> folder. One way to check the location of the <java_home> folder is to check the environment information settings in the C:\Program Files\octane\log\wrapper.log file.

      ExampleC:\Program Files\java\<jdkversion>\jre

    • Locate your keystore cacerts file, which is usually here: <java_home>\jre\lib\security\cacerts

    • Import each certificate.


      cd <java_home>\bin
      .\keytool -import -trustcacerts -alias <CA> -file <path to the CA certificate file> -keystore ..\lib\security\cacerts
  3. If the ALM Octane service is running, restart it.
