All Apps and Add-ons

After upgrading Splunk Enterprise to 6.4.2, why are we getting a certificate error trying to upgrade the Splunk Add-on for Unix and Linux to 5.2.3?


We've recently upgraded Splunk Enterprise to 6.4.2 and are getting an error while trying to upgrade the Splunk Add-on for Unix and Linux to version 5.2.3.

splunkd.log shows:

ERROR X509 - X509 certificate ( not match any allowed names (

How can we add the apps certificate to trusted to allow upgrades using Splunk Web?
