How to setup SSL

Install SSL certificates for Openhim-core

This can be accomplished directly from the OpenHIM console, where you can upload a new certificate for openhim-core through the console.

Openhim-core can be set to automatically watch a path which contains it’s certificates. The settings for which path and whether or not it should be automatically monitored, can be configured in the openhim-core config file under: certificateManagement.

If the config gets updated, openhim-core will need to be restarted.

Install SSL certificates for Openhim-console

We recommend setting up NGINX infront of openhim-console which is where SSL certificates should then be used. Here is a blog to introduce you to how that could work.

Certificates can be purchased or are freely available by using Letsencrypt.
