We have Installed Access management for Tridion Sites 9.6. using this link. Initially, we created Custom certificate Using Powershell script Mentioned in link and later we updated our own Certificate on appsettings.json.

Observed key file found under Access management\bin\Key Folder and having Activation Date & Expiration Date on that file, But having different expiration Date(2022-12-31) on My own Certificate. how to extend this Expiration Date on key file? will update automatically or if we give any Date (ex:2025-01-01) it will work? Can you please suggest how to proceed.

If you wanted to generate a self-signed certificate that expired three years from now you could add the NotAfter switch, for example:

$cert = New-SelfSignedCertificate -certstorelocation Cert:\LocalMachine\My -dnsname $env:COMPUTERNAME -NotAfter [System.DateTime]::AddYears(3)

Alternatively, you could pass a specific date with the NoteAfter switch, for example:

$cert = New-SelfSignedCertificate -certstorelocation Cert:\LocalMachine\My -dnsname $env:COMPUTERNAME -NotAfter "2024-01-01"
  • Now I'm using my own certificate not self-signed certificate. Then this key file is not valid for my own certificate or need to re-generate Self signed certificate?
