Importing a Certificate for the Smart Device Server

An SSL certificate is required to secure the connection between smart devices and the smart device server. This step is mandatory if you connect Android or iOS devices to Avalanche. Avalanche requires SSL certificates to be in PKCS #12 format with the private key. For information about obtaining certificates and converting them to PKCS #12, see Obtaining SSL Certificates.

To add a certificate to a smart device server

1.From the Avalanche Console, navigate to the Profiles page and select the smart device server profile you want to add the certificate to.

2.Click Edit.

3.In the HTTPS Configuration section, click Add.

4.Locate the certificate's .pfx file and click Open.

5.Enter the password associated with the certificate in the Password text box.

6.Click Save.

7.Perform or schedule a deployment from the My Enterprise level. For more information, see Deploying Changes and Scheduling Reboots.

After you have set up the SSL certificate, communication between smart devices and the smart device server is enabled and you can enroll devices. iOS devices also require an APNS certificate. For information about obtaining an APNS certificate, see Obtaining an APNS Certificate for iOS.
