Working with SSL certificates

NVivo Collaboration Server

During the installation process for NVivo for Teams, you can choose to use an SSL certificate to host NVivo for Teams Manager. This creates a secure connection (HTTPS) between NVivo for Teams Manager, NVivo for Teams and the NVivo client. It means that all communication is encrypted, ensuring privacy and data integrity.

Selecting an SSL certificate to host NVivo for Teams Manger

During installation of NVivo Server, you have the opportunity to select an SSL certificate to host NVivo for Teams Manager using a secure connection (HTTPS). The installer detects certificates in the LOCALMACHINE > MY certificate store location.

If you don't select a certificate, NVivo for Teams Manager is hosted on an insecure connection (HTTP).

For more information about SSL certificates, see the following MSDN articles:

Select an SSL certificate after installation

You need to specify the certificate during installation. If you want to select a certificate later, you can run the upgrade.bat to be able to select a certificate. For more information, refer to Upgrade from NVivo Server.

Renew an expired certificate

When your SSL certificate expires, renew the certificate using the appropriate method in IIS. NVivo for Teams will automatically detect the new details because the binding already exists between NVivo for Teams and the certificate. For more information about renewing SSL certificates, see the article Renewing your IIS SSL Certificate.
