This is a guide that shows you on how to set up SSL on your Tomcat that hosts Joget. Bear in mind that this is something that we configure at the server level (Tomcat) and not at application level (Joget). Methods to set up may differ from one web server to another.

1. Generating a key store file

First of all, we will need to generate a key store file. You may want to generate it with or without a SSL certificate purchased from your SSL certificate provider. This is an example on generating one by ourselves.

2. Configuring your Tomcat

Make sure that your server is not running. Open up \apache-tomcat\conf\server.xml, uncomment and edit the following lines accordingly.

Compared to the original settings, the following attributes have been added/changed.

port: 8443 to 443 (If you intend to browse to https://yourDomain instead of https://yourDomain:8443)
keystoreFile: Path to the .keystore file
keystorePass: The password defined earlier

Start your server. You may now surf to your Joget at *https://yourDomain/jw* or *https://yourDomain:8443/jw* depending on what is configured.
