Certificate authentication issues

I'm finding the information in relation to setting up certificate authentication hard to follow. In the following link: https://community.anaplan.com/t5/Releases/How-to-Use-Third-Party-Certificates-With-Anaplan/ba-p/4911... there is information that says:

 

"When you obtain your certificate from Sectigo, you can either submit the certificate request and get a private key from the CA or you can submit your request with a Certificate Signing Request (CSR)."

 

I've obtained my certificate from Sectigo, but I don't know what this step means?

Hi again Sam!

What extension is the certificate from Sectigo?

It depends which browser. I can open in IE or FF and then export the certificate to whatever format

Great, can you export it to .p12 and follow these instructions

 

Install OpenSSL

then

and

The output will be a .pem file and .key file
Upload the .pem into Tenant admin and use both the files in Python to generate auth tokens

I can't export the cert to a .p12 format in FF or IE though. It's giving me a few options but not this one.
