Import Trusted Root Certificate into Oracle Wallet Manager

Solution

You can import a Trusted Root Certificate into a wallet in either two ways:
  • Method 1: Paste the Trusted Root Certificate which can be downloaded from the Certificate Authority
  • Method 2: Import the Trusted Root Certificate which was downloaded from the Certificate Authority and saved to a text file.
 
 
Method 1: Paste the Trusted Root Certificate:
  1. Download and copy the Root Certificate which is required. The following solution will help you identify the correct root certificate you need: SO4362 
    Note: Include the lines -----BEGIN CERTIFICATE----- and -----END CERTIFICATE-----
     
  2. From the menu bar, choose Operations > Import Trusted Certificate. The 'Import Certificate' dialog box appears.
  3. Choose the Paste the Certificate button and choose OK.  An 'Import Trusted Certificate' dialog box appears with the following message: 
    "Please provide a base64 format certificate and paste it below."
     
  4. Paste the certificate into the dialog box and choose OK.  A message at the bottom of the window confirms that the trusted certificate was successfully installed.
You are then returned to the 'Oracle Wallet Manager' main panel and the trusted certificate appears at the bottom of the 'Trusted Certificates' tree.
 

Method 2: Importing the Trusted Root Certificate from a saved text file:
  1. Download and copy the Root Certificate which is required. The following solution will help you identify the correct root certificate you need: SO4362 ​
    Note: Include the lines -----BEGIN CERTIFICATE----- and -----END CERTIFICATE-----
     
  2. Copy and paste the output from the website into a Notepad and save it locally on your PC/server with a .txt extension.
  3. From the menu bar, choose Operations > Import Trusted Certificate. The 'Import Certificate' dialog box appears.
  4. Enter the path or folder name of the certificate location.
  5. Select the name of the trusted certificate file.
  6. Choose OK.  A message at the bottom of the window confirms that the trusted certificate was successfully installed.

You are then returned to the 'Oracle Wallet Manager' main panel and the trusted certificate appears at the bottom of the 'Trusted Certificates' tree.
