It's going to be similar to your web server process. You generate the CSR and then submit it to the CA and then apply the cert. has the process already documented.

In Central Admin, under security --> Trusts , you can upload certificates. It is probably possible with PowerShell, but the GUI is straight forward.

Hope that helps...
Will You Be GDPR Compliant by 5/28/2018?

GDPR? That's a regulation for the European Union. But, if you collect data from customers or employees within the EU, then you need to know about GDPR and make sure your organization is compliant by May 2018. Check out our preparation checklist to make sure you're on track today!

The "Import Certificate Into SharePoint Webserver" section in the link I provided ( ) has the steps you need.

Great info from "netcmh". Yes, one of the links above explains with screenshots what I describe.

Not sure what you are doing, but if you are setting up just an SSL web application within SharePoint, I don't think you need to import the cert in to central admin. I have set up several SSL web apps and have never had to do that. Just the configuration in IIS. The cert import in Central Admin is for setting up server trust when federating services or when connecting with other system, Exchange for example. But if the article says to do it, do it!

Good luck...
Thank you for the grade. Good luck.
