The Management Certificate
Download. Secure requests to the management service can be authenticated by using management certificates over SSL. To use a management certificate, it must be uploaded to Azure. You can download a UpGuard self-signed certificate by clicking the Download button. It will have the
.cerfile extension ready for uploading to the Azure management portal.
Upload. Once you have downloaded the UpGuard management certificate you can then upload it to the Azure management portal. On the settings page click Management Certificates and then click the Upload button on the bottom toolbar. A popup will then appear allowing you upload the certificate you just downloaded.Note:
The Azure management certificate is an X.509 v3 certificate used to authenticate an agent, such as Visual Studio Tools for Windows Azure or a client application that uses the Service Management API, acting on behalf of the subscription owner to manage subscription resources. It has a key length of 2048 bits.Note:
It can take up to 20 seconds for the management certificate to appear in Azure after being uploaded.
