Enabling REST API

Hi,

 

I found the CA documentation and knowledge base article on how to enable the REST API, however had a few follow up questions.

 

Documentation:https://docops.ca.com/ca-apm/10-3/en/integrating/api-reference-guide/apm-rest-api

Knowledge Base Article: https://support.ca.com/us/knowledge-base-articles.TEC1748203.html

 

When comparing the documentation to the knowledge base article, the documentation does not mention enabling the SSL in WebView.

 

Do you need to enable SSL in WebView?

 

If so, I noticed another knowledge base article regarding the WebView SSL (https://support.ca.com/us/knowledge-base-articles.tec1078428.html?intcmp=searchresultclick&resultnum=1) . This article is for releases 10.0 and 10.1, but wanted to confirm:

1. Does this also apply to 10.3?

2. If so, we are using a certificate authority for the REST API enablement on the MOM. Are there any additional configurations needed within WebView besides the properties file as mentioned in TEC1748203 to follow Resolution 1 in TEC1078428? Does this require another certificate or can the same certificate being used on the MOM for the REST API be used?

 

Thank you,

Sam
