SSL Keystores

YouTrack lets you import an SSL a keystore to YouTrack. A keystore is a container for public and private key pairs and the certificates that they are associated with. The keystore identifies YouTrack as a client when it tries to connect to a third party.

You can also use a keystore to cache public keys (in the form of certificates) for a third party service. If you have a keystore that contains keys and certificates for an external service, you can upload them on this page. Otherwise, you can upload the certificate and public key on the SSL Certificates page.

To access SSL keystores that have been imported to your YouTrack server, select SSL Keystores in the Server Settings area of the Administration menu.

  2. Click the Import Keystore button.

  3. In the Import Keystore dialog, enter a name for the certificate.
