  • When consuming webservices external to the OutSystems servers and considering the Client-server model, the OutSystems servers are, in this scenario, the client-side, and the servers that host the webservice, the server-side.

    Applicable use case

    When the server-side requires authentication via a certificate, the client-side needs to be configured so that it bears the certificate to be able to send it on it’s requests to the server.

    All the front-ends of the environment need to have the certificate configured. For OutSystems cloud environments, this operation is performed by OutSystems support.

    This option is available depending on your subscription, check here for more details about Cloud service delivery requiring direct assistance from OutSystems Support.

    Requesting the service

    You’ll need to open a support case and:

    • Provide the client-side certificate:

      • in .PFX format, with password
      • any other required root certificates, in .CER format, if not yet included in the .PFX
    • Make sure to be clear about what environments should the certificate be installed in.

    What will OutSystems deliver

    OutSystems staff installs the certificate in all the front-ends and notifies you once the operation is complete. The path to the certificate is provided so that you can use it in your integrations.

    Using the certificate on integrations
