Configuring SSL Certificates In Jetty

On occasion, it may be preferred to use the built-in Jetty web service instead of Tomcat for web connectivity. In these instances, certain system properties will need to be set in mediabeacon.properties in order for Jetty to recognize the server’s SSL certificate for use.

Version: 8.6, 2018.0+

Instructions

  1. Shut down MediaBeacon, if running.
  2. Navigate to the local user folder where the mediabeacon.properties file is located

  3. Open mediabeacon.properties in a text editor.

    mb.ssl.keystore.path=<Filepath of certificate>
    <Code>
