Root CA certificate Issues

Andrew Gibbs
Hi All,

I’ve recently start teaching myself how to use JMeter, by following tutorials on YouTube.

I’m using JMeter V4.0, on a MacBook Pro 2016 (I’m quite new to Mac)

I’ve hit a problem whilst trying to create a script using the HTTP(S) Test Script Recorder


  1.  On the ‘HTTP(S) Test Script Recorder’ element, when I hit the ‘Start’ (Record) button I get a popup with a message:

Root CA certificate ApacheJMeterTemporaryRootCA created in JMeter bin directory
You can install it following instructions in Component Reference documentation
See Installing the JMeter CA certificate for HTTPS recording paragraph…..


  1.  When I go to Firefox and attempt to import the certificate from the jmeter/bin directory, I get the a popup with a message:

This personal certificate can’t be installed because you do not own the corresponding private key which was created when the certificate was requested

I’ve also tried to import into Chrome, but KeyChain Access automatically starts up. From KeyChain Access I double clicked and opened the certificate, under the Trust section I changed the ‘When using this certificate:’ drop down option to ‘Always Trust’. I then closed the Certificate and KeyChain Access and attempted to Record again, but go the original popup with the message:
Root CA certificate….…

I’ve read a few posts online which suggest finding the finding both the .crt an .key files and creating 1 combined .P12 file, however I cant see any .key file. (I’ve searched for .key files for can find any)…

Any help would be greatly appreciated

Thanks!
Andrew

You have to import the cert under authorities and not personal certificate.
