Follow the instructions from the third-party certificate provider for installing and creating the SSL certificate.
If the HxGN SDx application server name is different from the name of the server to which the SSL certificate is issued, you must set the NotificationHostName property on the SmartPlant Foundation site to the SSL certificate host name. For more information, see Modify site settings.
After the certificate is installed, to eliminate the use of HTTP and require SSL for communication, perform the following optional procedure.
In IIS Manager, expand the Sites folder, and select your web site.
In the IIS section, double-click SSL Settings.
Select Require SSL and click Apply.
This is a system-wide parameter. This step is optional, depending on the desired security level for your servers.
Before SSL can be enabled, an HTTPS binding for secure communications must be added to the web server. To add a binding, in IIS Manager right-click the web site and click Edit Bindings. Click Add, select https from the Type list box, assign an IP address or range, select the certificate from the SSL certificate list box, and click OK.
