Create an AWS Server Certificate

Table of Contents


To create a new AWS Server Certificate by uploading a user-generated key pair.

Table of Contents



  1. Go to Clouds -> AWS Global -> Server Certificates.
  2. Click Upload new certificate.
  3. Provide the following information in order to create a new Server Certificate.
    • Name - The name of the Server Certificate.
    • Path - The path where the certificate will be stored on the server. The path must begin and end with a forward slash.  (e.g. /server/path/)
    • Description - A brief description about the certificate.
    • Certificate body - Copy and paste the key information in your CSR file (e.g. server.crt).
    • Private key - Copy and paste the key information in your Private RSA Key file (e.g. server.key).
  4. Click Upload.


Once you've created the Server Certificate you will not be able to edit the Certificate or Private Key.  If you want to use a different Certificate or Private Key, you will need to create a new Server Certificate.

Each Server Certificate that's created will be assigned a unique identifier (ID) and an Amazon Resource Name (ARN).
