UCMDB Support Tip: Enabling SSL(Https) for UCMDB

Steps for enabling SSL

  1. Enable SSL in JBoss
  2. Create a certificate and add it to the UCMDB server keystore(Optional, if one already exists)
  3. Add the certificate to a Client UCMDB (Optional , only if certificate is unsigned)


Enabling SSL in JBoss

To enable the JBoss in ssl , you’ll need to edit: <UCMDB Server dir>\j2f\EJBContainer\server\mercury\deploy\jbossweb-tomcat55.sar\server.xmlAnd unmark the tag that start After: <!-- SSL/TLS Connector

<Connector port="8443" address="${jboss.bind.address}"

           maxThreads="100" strategy="ms" maxHttpHeaderSize="8192"


           scheme="https" secure="true" clientAuth="false"


           keystorePass="changeit" keyAlias="myCert"

           sslProtocol = "TLS" />

The keystoreFile and keystorePass must be set to the correct path of a java keystore and its password respectively. If the keystore holds more than one certificate, the first one will be used. To choose a specific certificate, use the keyAlias attribure with the alias of the certificate. With the above settings, JBoss will look for the keystore in: <UCMDB server dir>\j2f\EJBContainer\server\mercury\conf\myKeystore


  2.  Creating a certificate

To create a new unsigned certificate:

goto:  <UCMDB server dir>\j2f\<JRE>\bin

execute: keytool -genkey -alias myCert -keyalg RSA -keystore <UCmdb server dir>\j2f\EJBContainer\server\mercury\conf\myKeystore *this will generate the certificate and add it to the keystore

Export the certificate to file:

keytool -export -alias myCert -keystore <UCMDB server dir>\j2f\EJBContainer\server\mercury\conf\myKeystore -file c:\myCert


3.  Adding certificate to an additional(Client) UCMDB(recommended)

 It Is also recomended to add the key to the ucmdb java keystore.(see above, for exporting the  certificate to file) goto:  <UCMDB server dir>\j2f\<JRE>\bin

 execute: keytool -import -trustcacerts -alias myCert -keystore ..\lib\security\cacerts -file c:\myCert *default password: changeit


Using an Unsigned certificate  If using a certificate that is not signed by a Known Certificate Authority (AKA: CA). For example: Verisign, Thawte, etc. By default, any java based program will not accept connections to the webserver. To allow for example for a different UCMDB server's adapter to connect to the ssl connection, you must add the certificate into the Client UCMDB truststore(keystore).
