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 by running service octane start.

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> directory. It is usually under the user/lib directory but may be different for your environment. One way to check the location of the <java_home> directory is to check the environment information settings in the /octane/log/wrapper.log file.

      Example/usr/lib/jvm/java-1.8.0-openjdk-1.8.0.131-11.b12.el7.x86_64/jre

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

    • Import each certificate.

      Example:

      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 (octane) is running, restart it.
