Converting your x509 certificate to a file

1. Navigate to the SAML Identity Provider page (or SP page) of the Gigya Console.

 

2. Clicking on Saml IdP Metadata link will bring up the following page.

 

3. Copy the data from the x509 Certificate section and paste it into your favorite text editor.

4. Append these two lines to the very top and very bottom of the file (see the example in Step 5, below).

-----BEGIN CERTIFICATE-----
-----END CERTIFICATE-----

 

5. So that your text file looks similar to this:

-----BEGIN CERTIFICATE-----

-----END CERTIFICATE-----

 

6. Save the file as a .pem file with whatever name you like, i.e., gigya-x509-cert.pem

 

That's it. You now have a valid .pem file containing the Gigya x509 certificate.

If you are using Microsoft Notepad to create the file, make sure you select ANSI encoding when saving the file, or the import may not work correctly.
