We are going to develop Custom Trigger and store it on our servers. One of prerequisites is a public IP which supports SSL.

But, how do we need to configure SSL Handshake between two servers?

Here is the procedure



1 Answer 1


The handshake is done over natural HTTPS connections (SSL/port 443).

Configuring your server/endpoint to be SSL-enabled doesn't require any involvement with ExactTarget, except to ensure your SSL-chain is valid.

We recommend that you perform a standard "production-grade" CSR (Certificate Signing Request) and use a trusted CA to authenticate your SSL. This simplifies the process of certificate validation and verification (self-signed certificates can be problematic).

Does this answer your question?

  • Thank you. Yes, it does. But, currently, we have to use self-signed certificate for development. Later, we will purchase valid certificate. We have to solve issue with self-signed certificates...

  • Journey Builder doesn't support self signed certificates. If you use Heroku, they provide a valid cert. chain that Journey Builder can use. Aug 11, 2014 at 22:10
