Internal SSL Certificate for Smart Agent discovery

Internal SSL Certificate for Smart Agent discovery

Currently, two-way SSL in Agent Driven Inventory Discovery is deployed OOTB with a standard certificate, meaning the same certificate is used at every deployment.  To rectify this, you need to create your own new self-signed certificate for two-way SSL in Agent Driven Inventory Discovery.  Steps are here:

https://docs.microfocus.com/itom/Universal_CMDB:11.0/hardening/Agent_driven_inventory_discovery_create_cert

This process is very manual, requires download of OpenSSL, etc.  We would like to see some intelligence built in to avoid a lot of manual steps that can lead to mistakes and a UI/wizard/something? put in to prompt new users so that they do NOT accidentally deploy the OOTB certificates (unless that's what they actually want to do...).

I would like to request the whole logic to create a new self-signed certificate for two-way SSL in Agent Driven Inventory Discovery be put into a script, which can then be presented in the new UI and executed with one click.  Make life easier for those of us wanting to move to smart agents.
