HTTPS Client Certificates

When a robot accesses a HTTPS site, it may need to provide its own certificate to the web server. This is set up in the robot's Default Options or in the step-specific Options. One way to provide the certificate is to reference one of those that have been configured into the Kapow Katalyst installation.

To add a new client certificate, in the Certificates tab of RoboServer Settings click the icon below the list of HTTPS client certificates. You will be prompted to select a certificate file which must be in PKCS12 format, and you must enter the password used to encrypt the file. When the certificate is first entered into the list, it will be given a unique ID, which is later used in the robot to select the certificate. You can change the ID by clicking the icon. Remember that the certificates must be configured into all Kapow Katalyst installations that need to run the robot.
