Extending the trusted CA list on Linux

Rational® Test Automation Server trusts the certificates signed by a recognized Certified Authority (CA). When you have any additional CAs, you must extend the trusted certificates list by using an environment variable on Linux.

Before you begin

You must have saved the CA assigned to Rational® Test Automation Server.
Note: You can contact the administrator of Rational® Test Automation Server if you do not have a copy of the CA.


  1. Open the terminal.
  2. Run the following command to create an environment variable on the Linux operating system:
    export NODE_EXTRA_CA_CERTS= {path of the downloaded CA with the file extension}
    For example,
    export NODE_EXTRA_CA_CERTS=/opt/mycert/ca-master.crt


You have extended the trusted CA certificates list on Linux.
