Activating the HTTPS App
Begin by logging into your platform as the Superadmin. Access the Admin Menu from the gear icon in the header, then select the Apps and Features item in the menu. Next, select the Additional Features tab in the tab menu near the top of the page.
Then, find the HTTPS App from the list of apps in this tab, and press Try it For Free in the app’s row. Read the information, then select Start Free Trial. Please note that after the trial period ends, you will be charged for this app, as it is not a free feature. Once the app is activated in your platform, it can be accessed from the Admin menu. Let’s take a look at how to configure the app.
Setting Up the HTTPS App
In order to set up the HTTPS App, access the Admin Menu from the gear icon, then select the Advanced Settings item from the Settings section. Once you’re on the Advanced Settings page, select the HTTPS tab from the tabs menu on the left side. In this tab, flag whether you want to activate HTTPS to your standard domain (yourlms.docebosaas.com) or to your custom domain URL. You can also apply it to a domain you’ve created using Docebo’s Multidomain app when configuring the settings of that multidomain (not in the main Advanced Settings area of the platform).
Once you’ve selected the domain for which you want to add a certificate, move to the section below.
Option 1: You Already Have an SSL Certificate.
If you already have an SSL certificate, flag the corresponding option the Certificate section. You then need to upload the SSL certificate, the key file that was provided to you by your certificate provider, and the Intermediate CA (while this last step is not required, it is recommended). Please Note: You shouldn’t upload the certificate in a compressed file (.zip). Rather, you need to open the zip file and upload the uncompressed certificate file. The key files should not be password protected.
The file should be in a PEM format and included in a text file. Acceptable file types are: p8, key, p10, csr, cer, crl, p7c, crt, der, pem, p12, pfx, p7b, spc, p7r. The certificate file should include only the text between the following tags (include the tags in the text file):
- From “—–BEGIN CERTIFICATE—–“
- to “—–END CERTIFICATE—–“
Once the files are uploaded, press Save to complete the process. Once the files are uploaded correctly into your platform, this message will appear
Option 2: You Don’t Have an SSL Certificate
If you don’t have an SSL certificate yet, you need to flag the corresponding option in the Certificate section in the HTTPS tab. To activate the https, you must buy an SSL Certificate from a third party vendor. To do this, you must provide them with a CSR file. Your Docebo LMS will generate the CSR file (at 2048 bit) on your behalf. Once you’ve flagged the option that you need a certificate, simply fill the form with all of the required information in order to generate the CSR file.
Once you’ve finished filling out the form, press the Generate CRS File button, then download your new file. We strongly recommend downloading the key file as well, and store it in a safe place on your computer. Once you have downloaded your CSR file, send it to your SSL certificate vendor. Then, after your certificate provider sends you the SSL certificate, please select the ‘I have my certificate and I want to upload it’ option and follow the steps outlined above for this option.
Adding a Renewed Certificate
If your certificate has been renewed and you need to upload the new certificate in the platform, you first need to delete the olde certificate in this area, obtain the new certificate, then upload the new certificate using the steps outlined above.
