Splunk 6.2.2.
How can I change ssl certificate on 8089 management port? I read the instruction but it very short. Сould you tell in more detail how to make the certificate?

I know how to do it, I tried to use on 8089 same certificate which I use for web.conf but another is necessary, with the password.


Making a new SSL certificate is not within the scope of Splunk documentation.

There are plenty of resources which will guide you through the process of creating a self-signed cert (although that does little for security), but the specifics depend on your operating platform. For Linux you would (probably) use openssl as the tool of choice.

The first I found by Googling "creating a self-signed certificate" "openssl" is here:

If you mean to create a properly signed and validated SSL cert, you need to follow your signing authority's instructions (which probably entail creating a key and CSR, and uploading the latter for signing).
