My email server only supports SMTPS (SMTP over SSL) with client certificate authentication. I already received my personal private key file mykey.p12 from my system administrator.

How do I configure ivy to use this certificate for authentication to send emails ?

It is possible since version 5.0.6:

First, import the private key to the ivy keystore. The ivy keystore is located at <Installation Dir>/configuration/keystore.jks. You can perform the import with keytool (shipped with the Java Development Kit) Refer to the JDK documentation for more information.

After that...

In Designer we have to configure the Designer to use this keystore:

  • Go to Window -> Preferences -> Xpert.ivy/SSL Client
  • Activate the checkbox Use custom key store
  • Provide the other keystore settings as appropriate.

Now we are ready to configure email to use client key authentication:

  • Go to Window -> Preferences -> Xpert.ivy/Email
  • Set Encryption method to SSL
  • Activate the checkbox Use SSL client key and enter the SSL client key alias you specified during the import.
  • Provide the other email settings as appropriate.

Now your Xpert.ivy Designer is ready to send emails with SSL client certificate authentication.

In Xpert.ivy Server go to Server Administration and set the system properties starting with SSL.Client.* respectively EMail.Server.* accordingly.

For further information refer to the documentation.

  • ServerGuide SSL client: Server Administration -> System Properties -> SSL Client
  • ServerGuide email: Server Administration -> System Properties -> Email Server
  • DesignerGuide SSL client: Introduction -> Xpert.ivy Preferences (Workspace Preferences) -> SSL Client Settings
  • DesignerGuide email: Introduction -> Xpert.ivy Preferences (Workspace Preferences) -> Email Settings

As an alternative to keytool you may use KeyMan.

I really like the Keystore Explorer. Have a look here:
