Configure ArcGIS Monitor with an existing CA-signed certificate

If you already have a certificate issued by a commercial or internal certificate authority (CA), you can configure ArcGIS Monitor to use this existing certificate. To import this certificate into Monitor, the full certificate chain (root certificate, public key, private key, and any necessary intermediate certificates) must be stored in the PKCS#12 format, which is represented by a file with either the .p12 or .pfx file extension.

  1. Access ArcGIS Monitor, if necessary.

    The Home page appears.

  2. Click Administration.

    The Administration page appears.

  3. Click Edit next to HTTP Communication Settings on the Administration page.

    The HTTP Communication Settings dialog box appears.

  4. Click Choose File under SSL Certificate and choose the .p12 or .pfx file that contains the certificate.
  5. If your SSL certificate requires a passphrase, provide it in the SSL Passphrase text box.
  6. Click Save and Restart.

    The CA-signed certificate that you specified is used by Monitor Server for HTTPS requests.

Access Monitor Server

Monitor Server listens on port 30443 for requests when HTTPS is enabled. Use the following URL syntax to securely access Monitor Server:


If you rename the Monitor Server machine, you can continue to access it using HTTPS; however, the hostname will no longer match the original certificate. You must generate a new certificate and configure Monitor Server to use it.
