Thank you for the post.
“If they were to make this generic rather than specific to a list of vendors, all they'd have to do is allow you to upload a root certificate authority certificate and an intermediate certificate authority certificate into any part of the environment that would connect to components that have the actual SSL certificate installed. That way the actual SSL certificate that is installed can be verified as valid, and you get your pretty green rich as per the documentation.”
Currently this is not a feature of FileMaker Server as designed; however, if you would like to see this changed, I would encourage you to enter this as a suggestion into our Feature Requests web form at:
These web form suggestions are monitored and read by our Development and Product Management departments where they are then discussed and considered for a future release. Although I could copy your post and paste it into the web form, there are some questions asked that only you can answer.
I shall add it in there. Still seems a bit odd that this wasn't included at the beginning. There must surely be a number of other clients who would have existing certificates from other vendors for their web applications.
