How to set up client certificates for managed Postgres

I would prefer to use certificates for managed databases and Apps. I can download the ca_certificate from the managed database portal. But I don’t see the private key.

Is there a way to generate client certificates for postgres?

Hi @RvanLaar,

To generate Client certificates for Postgres managed database, Make sure you have OpenSSL installed on your operating system.OpenSSL will be used to generate client-side public/private key pairs.

Here is how to use the OpenSSL to generate the client public/private key pairs

openssl req -x509 -newkey rsa:2048 -keyout client-key.pem -out client-cert.pem -days 3650 -nodes -subj '/CN=localhost'

I hope this helps!
