I'm sure that someone must have done this and I hope they can share their solution here.
I have successfully installed Maximo 7.6 and built and deployed Maximo Anywhere 7.5.2 apps on mac. I can see my apps when i type the URL to the applicationcenter on my iPad. The last step, according to IBM, is: "To install applications on iOS devices, you must first configure the Application Center server with SSL".
I'm using Websphere 8.5.5 and Maximo is accessible on port 9080 (or 80, using webserver) and MobileFirst is on 9081.
If i get the certificate and install it somehow (following IBM instructions did not get me far, but that is not important, yet) - what would be the the url where i can find my applicationcenter?
At the moment i can access it on http://mycomputer:9081/applicationcenter but i can't install apps.
So, I have the following 2 questions:
1. If i secure it via SSL will it be on the same port only with https instead of http, i.e. https:/mycomputer:9081/applicationcenter?
2. Can you get the certificate from any CA at all for "mycomputer"? (tried CAcert since they are not charging, but they try to validate the name by sending email to admin@mycomputer which obviously is not going to work)
Thank you in advance.
Cheers,
Pierre
