WSO2 products use asymmetric encryption by default for the purposes of authentication and data encryption. In asymmetric encryption, keystores (with key pairs and certificates) are created and stored for the product. It is possible to have multiple keystores so that the keys used for different use cases are kept unique. For more information about creating and configuring keystores, see Using Asymmetric Encryption.

After you have created a new keystore and updated the client-truststore.jks file, you must update a few configuration files in order to make the keystore work.

For instructions on the default carbon keystore configurations, see Configuring Keystores in WSO2 Products in the WSO2 Product Administration Guide.

Follow the steps below to configure a keystore in WSO2 API Manager.

Configuring keystores for AMQP and MQTT transports

To configure AMQP and MQTT transports, open <API-M_HOME>/repository/conf/broker.xml. The values for the location and password parameters under keyStore and trustStore should be updated. The code below shows the default values.

<sslConnection enabled="true" port="8672">

Configuring keystores for Jaggery Apps SSO configuration

Open <API-M_HOME>/repository/deployment/server/jaggeryapps/publisher/site/conf/site.json. Update the values for keyStoreName and keyStorePassword as shown below.

"ssoConfiguration" : {
        "enabled" : "true",
        "issuer" : "API_PUBLISHER",
        "identityProviderURL" : "https://localhost:9444/samlsso",
        "keyStorePassword" : "wso2carbon",
        "identityAlias" : "wso2carbon",
        "keyStoreName" :"wso2carbon.jks",


Configuring keystores for endpoints

Open <API-M_HOME>/repository/conf/identity/ and update client.keyStore and client.trustStore with the location of the keystore and truststore, respectively. The default configurations are shown below.


Configuring keystores for advanced transport handling

To have more advanced transport handling functions using keystores, you need to update the <API-M_HOME>/repository/conf/tomcat/catalina-server.xml file and the <API-M__HOME>/repository/conf/axis2/axis2.xml file.
