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?

Re: Certificate authentication issues

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

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

Re: Certificate authentication issues

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.
