Creating a Self-Signed Certificate

Creating a Self-Signed Certificate through Internet Information Services (IIS)

To create a Self-Signed Certificate for use with ProcessRobot using Windows, Internet Information Services (IIS) must be installed on the Server machine. If IIS is not installed on the machine, alternative solutions like using OpenSSL are available.

This guide describes the steps required to create the Certificate using IIS.

Specify a friendly name for the Certificate, eg “ProcessRobot”. Important: it is strongly recommended that only one certificate exists on the Server machine, to avoid conflicts when ProcessRobot attempts to access the Certificate. Set the Certificate Store to “Personal”. Click “OK” to save the Certificate and close the window.
