Uploading the keystore and truststore files

Updated on June 30, 2021

Enabling encryption between nodes secures the data that is transferred across nodes so that it cannot be accessed by unauthorized hosts. Upload a keystore.jks for the private key and the associated certificate or certificate chain.

By default, the file names are cluster-keystore.jks and cluster-truststore.jks. Change the file names by modifying the cluster/encryption/keystorename and cluster/encryption/truststorename prconfig.xml file settings, respectively.​ Upload the keystore and truststore files into the Pega Platform as instances of Data-Admin-Security-Keystore.
  1. In Dev Studio, click + Create > Security > Keystore.
  2. Enter a short description.
  3. In the Keystore field, enter the keystore name.
  4. Click Create and open.
  5. Enter the keystore file type, either JKS or PKCS12.
  6. Enter the keystore password.
  7. Click Upload file and upload the actual keystore file, not the certificate.
  8. Click Save.
  9. Repeat this procedure to upload the truststore file.
What to do next: Enabling encryption.
