One of our partners (to whom we plan to send our SF data) has asked whether we have a SSL certificate.

I have looked at our configuration and all I can see is "Self Signed Certificate" which already have in "Certificate and Key Management" but we do not have anything called SSL certificate.

Can someone tell me how to get SSL certificate and where to add this in our configuration ?

    In that case I am pretty sure that they need to send you their CA signed SSL cert and you need to use it when sending data. May 29, 2017 at 0:37
  • Tx Boris...just one more...so it does not mean that I need to modify our API client certificate right ?.

Salesforce by default presents a CA signed SSL certificate when talking to 3rd party endpoints, configured in the Remote Site Settings (One way SSL). As you're sending data to the 3rd party webservice you shouldn't need to do anything.

If you want to setup 2 way SSL then you'll have to do a bit of work as described here. Also there is a good blog post which I referred to in the past when setting this up.
