Authentication within HyperConnect/Informatica Cloud is handled at the connection level. There should be a connection for each model that is used within the integrations. HyperConnect/Informatica Cloud supports basic authentication and certificate authentication.
The steps to use Certificate Authority (CA) certificates with HyperConnect/Informatica are listed below:
Each connection must be using the "Anaplan V2" connector.
A java keystore containing both the public and private keys needs to be created and placed where the secure agent can access it.
In each connection:
Set the Auth Type to "Cert Auth".
Clear the "Certificate Path Location" field.
Update the API Major Version. Set it to 2.
Update the API Minor Version. Set it to 0.
Enter the full path to the java keystore in the "KeyStore Path Location".
Enter the alias used when the java keystore was created in the "KeyStore Alias" field.
Enter the password for the java keystore in the "KeyStore Password" field. Note the password is masked.
Test for connectivity.
Authentication within Dell Boomi is handled at the connection level. There should be a connection for each workspace that is used within the integrations. Dell Boomi supports basic authentication and certificate authentication.
The steps to use CA certificates with Dell Boomi are listed below:
Each connection must be using the "Anaplan" version of the connector. The "Anaplan V2" and "Anaplan (legacy)" versions are not current and do not support CA certificate authentication.
A P12 bundle of both the public and private keys needs to be created.
The file received from the CA provider is sometimes in the P12 bundle format.
To test this: Use the java keytool to run the following command.
keytool -v list -storetype pkcs12 -keystore %path to keystore%
Within the output of the command, there should be an "Alias name" property. This value will be used in the connection.
If the certificate does not contain the alias, a P12 bundle can be created using OpenSSL. See Creating a Java Keystore for the steps to create a P12 bundle. Once the bundle is created, the remaining steps in the article are not needed.
In Dell Boomi:
Create a new object.
Certificate Type: X.509.
The name and location of the certificate are up to you.
Copy everything from "--- BEGIN RSA PRIVATE KEY ---" through "---END RSA PRIVATE KEY ---"
Paste the contents into the "External private key" field.
