Summary

FileMaker Server 13 fmsadmin certificate create only creates SHA-1 certificates

Product

FileMaker Server

Version

13

Description of the issue

When using 'fmsadmin certificate create' command, the generated certificate is not SHA-2 but is SHA-1 and therefore is seen as a security risk. Any idea when this function will create SHA-2 certificates? Is there something I am missing or anything I can do to force it to create SHA-2 certs?

Steps to reproduce the problem

Invoke the command 'fmsadmin certificate create' from a command line. The certificate is not SHA-2.

Expected result

It would be nice to get an SHA-2 certificate as SHA-1 is a security vulnerability.

Actual result

An SHA-1 certificate

Workaround

Using 3rd party certificates is the only option as far as I know.
