To enable SSL on a website in IIS, first select the site under which DataPA is installed (usually Default Web Site), then select Bindings.  In that binding, select HTTPS as the Type.  You will need to provide an SSL certificate.  If you do not have one yet, you can create a temporary self-signed certificate using the Powershell “New-SelfSignedCertificate” command.  Install the certificate in IIS by selecting the server at the top of the tree, then “Server Certificates” under IIS.


If you are using a Self-signed certificate, you will receive a warning in the browser regarding the site not being secure.  You can choose to ignore this warning for development or demonstration purposes. 

You may experience errors if embedding DataPA Enterprise in your application, if using a self-signed certificate.  In this case, you will need a real certificate.


You will of course need a real certificate from a trusted issuer for your production site.
