Working with social media certificates

In order to communicate to Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter, your server requires the SSL certificates for these social networks to be installed.

When these certificates expire you will need to refresh them on your server by removing then and adding them again.

Viewing certificates

To view a list of current certificates for Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter, run the following command from the wp_profile_root/ConfigEngine directory:
Windows
ConfigEngine.bat action-list-wcm-social-certs
AIX®, Linux, Solaris
./ConfigEngine.sh action-list-wcm-social-certs
IBM® i
ConfigEngine.sh action-list-wcm-social-certs
z/OS®
./ConfigEngine.sh action-list-wcm-social-certs

Removing certificates

To remove all current certificates for Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter, run the following command from the wp_profile_root/ConfigEngine directory:
Windows
ConfigEngine.bat action-remove-wcm-social-certs
AIX, Linux, Solaris
./ConfigEngine.sh action-remove-wcm-social-certs
IBM i
ConfigEngine.sh action-remove-wcm-social-certs
z/OS
./ConfigEngine.sh action-remove-wcm-social-certs

Installing certificates

To install the certificates for Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter, run the following command from the wp_profile_root/ConfigEngine directory:
Windows
ConfigEngine.bat action-install-wcm-social-certs
AIX, Linux, Solaris
./ConfigEngine.sh action-install-wcm-social-certs
IBM i
ConfigEngine.sh action-install-wcm-social-certs
z/OS
./ConfigEngine.sh action-install-wcm-social-certs
Note: If your server is located behind a firewall, you may need to manually import these certificates. See the WebSphere® Application Server documentation for instructions on importing certificates. These are the locations of each certificate type:
  • Facebook: graph.facebook.com
    Note: On z/OS systems, you must use the IP address of the Facebook certificate.
  • LinkedIn: api.linkedin.com
  • Twitter: api.twitter.com
SSL port 443 is default SSL port for these certificates.
