Changing On-Premise Console Certificate

This Article Applies to:

  • Avast Business On-Premise Console


Avast Business On-Premise Console users can manually change the certificate after the Console is installed.

  1. Upload the new certificate to C:\Program Files\AVAST Software\Management Console\console\certificates
  2. Locate the configuration file for the On-Premise Console at C:\Program Files\AVAST Software\Management Console\console\config\application-user-config.yml
  3. Open the configuration file in a simple text editor, such as Notepad
  4. Locate the 'keyStorePath' value and input the new certificate details, then save the file
    • ${local.securityResources} points to ${local.homeDirectory}\certificates (C:\Program Files\AVAST Software\Management Console\console\certificates by default)
  5. Restart the On-Premise Console to apply the certificate changes

Note that only JKS (.jks) and PKCS12 (.p12) file formats are supported. You can, however, convert other types to these using an online tool of your choice.
