You can enable the CONNX origins and the CONNX connection to use SSL/TLS to connect to CONNX.

  1. On the JDBC tab for the stage, select the Use SSL property.
  2. If the CONNX certificate is signed by a private CA or not trusted by the default Java truststore, create a custom truststore file or modify a copy of the default Java truststore file to add the CA to the file. Then configure Data Collector to use the modified truststore file.
    1. Use the following command to set the JAVA_HOME environment variable:
      export JAVA_HOME=<Java home directory>
    2. Use the following command to set the SDC_CONF environment variable:
      export SDC_CONF=<Data Collector configuration directory>
      For example:
      export SDC_CONF=/streamsets-datacollector-5.6.0/etc
    3. Use the following command to copy the default Java truststore file to the Data Collector configuration directory:
      cp "${JAVA_HOME}/jre/lib/security/cacerts" "${SDC_CONF}/truststore.jks"
    4. Use the following keytool command to import the CA certificate into the truststore file:
      keytool -import -file <certificate> -trustcacerts -noprompt -alias <alias> -storepass <password> -keystore "${SDC_CONF}/truststore.jks"
    5. In Control Hub, edit the deployment. In the Configure Engine section, click Advanced Configuration. Then, click Java Configuration. Define the following options in the Java Options property:
      • - Path to the truststore file on the Data Collector machine.
      • - Truststore password.
      For example, define the options as follows:
    6. Save the changes to the deployment and restart all engine instances.
