How can I host flexmonster server over HTTPS?

Jeremy Deats asked on March 24, 2016

The web page that is hosting the embedded Flexmonster PivotTable is being served over HTTPS. HTTPS does not allow mixed content so we run into a problem here
    <!– 3. Embed the component using flexmonster.embedPivotComponent() –>
    <script type=”text/javascript”>
        var config = {
            licenseKey: “Z54N-092IM4-3U1G-2H4L-1Y1Y-4S07-0V4C-3600-4T2P-0H4U-231C-5G23”,
            dataSourceType: “microsoft analysis services”,
            // URL to the Data Speed Accelerator
           proxyUrl: “https://www.ourourserver:8085/FlexmonsterProxy”, 5877
What steps should I follow to embed Flexmonster Pivot for SSL?

Thank you romka! Unfortunately the command-line recommended in that article doesn’t work on Microsoft Windows Server 2012 R2 it only leads to a 1312 “can not add certificate” error message which brought me back to this
https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/981506
Don’t really want to install a patch designed for Windows 2008 R2 and it’s advised not to use it on other versions of Windows. I already have the SSL cert registered with IIS 7 which is also running on the machine where FlexMonster accelerator application is running.

Hello Jeremy,

Thank you for details.
Please try the following:
Importing an Existing Certificate

  • Run mmc.exe
  • Go to File-> Add/Remove Snap-In
  • Choose the Certificates snap-in
  • Select Computer Account
  • Navigate to: Certificates (Local Computer)\Personal\Certificates
  • Right-click the Certificates folder and choose All Tasks -> Import
  • Follow the wizard instructions to select the certificate

Once imported, then re-run the netsh command from an Administrator command prompt.
 
Please let me know if it works for you.
 
Regards,
Ian
