SSL set up

I am an intern right now who is working as a tableau server admin. My organization is working to try to set up SSL keys with our server

How do I know if the certificate of the server I manage is self signed? The certificate seem to have a few issue that cannot figure out. I am learning about SSL so any insights would be helpful.

The website url should be this: https://app-tableau/#/sign

the key certificate is this:

the actual computer name of the server is this: app-tableau

the certificate is issued to

L4 Transporter

To start with look at issue name if it signed by well known CA like verizon, commodo  digicert etc.


Also if If the subject and issuer are the same ?
