upload intermediate certs

L0 Member

We would like to avoid the need to create PEM certs that are copy-paste of text codes as we need to upload many certs on a regular basis.

When we upload PKCS12 files - they don't seem to include an intermediate.

OTOH it is unclear if one can upload an intermediate and refer to it as such. I was thinking of uploading it into the root CA store but this is controlled by Palo Alto.


Is this at all possible?


We are using version 11.0.1 Panorama

Hello @veredgf 

When you export or create a PKCS12 file, you can choose to include the complete certificate chain, starting from the end-entity certificate and extending to the root certificate. This guarantees that the recipient, application, or device can access all essential certificates for establishing trust in the end-entity certificate.

Alternatively, you have the option to download and import the intermediate and root certificates into the PA certificate store. This will lead to automatic formation of the certificate chain.
