Add Root Certificate

Hi all,

I need to add my root certificate to dashboard and gateway, am already added in:

tyk_analytics` file


and the tyk.conf :

“http_server_options”: {
“override_defaults”: true,
“read_timeout”: 0,
“write_timeout”: 0,
“use_ssl”: true,
“use_ssl_le”: false,
“ssl_insecure_skip_verify”: true,
“enable_websockets”: true,
“certificates”: [
“domain_name”: “*”,
“cert_file”: “/etc/ssl/certs/shetools-selfsigned.crt”,
“key_file”: “/etc/ssl/private/shetools-selfsigned.key”

my Tyk on premise.

the dashboard and gateway, it’s working fine in the browser but when I tried to send a request through Postman the response “Could not get any response”, the response is showing after disabling SSL certificate verification in Postman.

So, I am trying now to add the root certificate in conf files.

Anyone can help me in this regards,


The root certificate = intermediate certificate.
And anyone can tell me the tyk whats use server in ubuntu ? Apache or nginx
and where can I find the file config?
