In the tab Certificates you can find both the information regarding the certificate store in use for the WebOffice 10.8 SP2 application and the option to import new SSL certificates into the certificate store or delete existing ones.

 

WebOffice 10.8 SP2 uses its own certificate store cacerts_weboffice on top of the Java certificate store cacerts in order to maintain imported certificates also after an update of Java. The display shows both the paths to the certificate stores in use and the list of certificate authorities officially trusted by Java.

SynAdmin - certificate store

 

In the bottom part of the administration site you can check a certificate for a specific http domain using the Display Certificate Check button, and on the result page set the certificate as trusted.

Caution: 

Please note that when using LDAPS it is necessary to specify the fully qualified LDAPS server name (FQDN) and not only the domain in the JAVA or WebOffice certificate store.

 

Note: 

Check the How-To chapter for importing a certificate in SynAdmin in SSL-Zertifikate über SynAdmin importieren.

Only if a certificate is located in the WebOffice certificate store, it can be assured that after a Java update (new Java certificate store) the certificate stays trusted.
