Setting API Portal for the first time

    I am trying to set up the API Developer Portal for the first time.

     

    Is there anyway I could get free downloads or files to get the Portal private key and certificate? Or do I need to contact CA Supoort for those resources?

    ( In the CA training courses for the Developer Portal, there was an example vaportal1_key and vaportal1_cert )

     

    I am following the guidelines off the CA API Developer Portal v3.0 course guide because that helps me install the Portal from scratch rather than v4.2 that tells you how to configure with the newer/updated interface.

     

    I'm setting all of this up on a VM in VMware vSphere Hypervisor environment. Have the ability to SCP files from my Desktop to my VM via WinSCP so I just need to be able to have those private keys or certificate so I can then go configure the Portal appliance in another VM like a Gateway to have mutual authentication and finish installation before opening a web browser to access the Portal.

     

    Below I have attached the course guide for reference, I need help from pages 14-16 in search bar or 1-14 on the actual document pages.

     

    Thanks!

    Hi There,

     

    May I suggest that you follow the Portal 3.5 online manual:

     

    Set Up the API Portal - CA API Developer Portal 3.5 - CA Technologies Documentation 

    And this guide will provide you the needed steps to generate the requested certificates and keys needed for the Integration with the CA API Gateway and the complete install of the CA API Portal 3.5.

     

    Do let us know if this helps.

     

    Kind Regards,

     

    Amit.
