Splunk certificates required for 3rd Party Application?

Communicator

I am making a 3rd party application using Splunk API . I noticed that in server.conf, by toggling the enableSplunkdSSL to true or false secure or unsecure the splunkd port. However, I am not at all friendly with the certs. I need some help regarding certs. I need to make a request to https management port. After adding the default cert to the browser. I can access it, but through the application, I cannot. So to add those certs in the application, which file do I need to add in my application, and how to create those files with the default cert which I am getting from the browser?
How can I import those certs in my application?

Thanks in advance

Finally got the answer.

Splunkweb communicates to splunkd port through self-signed certificates. When i was making a call from node.js to the self signed certificate https port, it was giving me a certificate error(deduced by the rules and regulations of CORS). So i finally allowed my server to make calls to the self signed certificate https service.And you are done

I added this line in node.js to allow the server
process.env.NODE_TLS_REJECT_UNAUTHORIZED = "0";
