Republish and stop publication of certificates in Certificate Manager


This article describes how to republish, or how to stop (abort) one or more failed certificate publications, produced by Smart ID Certificate Manager (CM). The certificate can be a public key certificate (PKC) or an attribute certificate (AC). 

It is only allowed to republish or stop a publication of certificates with the status "Error". If a publication is in another state, it will be skipped and an error will be displayed for the failed certificate. This task is done in the Certificate Controller (CC) in Certificate Manager.


This task requires that:

  • The Certificate Controller (CC) is running.
  • The officer has the following roles:
    • For abort: Publish certificate
    • For republish: Republish failed distribution

  • Enough information is known to identify the certificate in the database.

  • A search for certificates has been performed as described in Search for certificates in Certificate Manager and the user certificate(s) to be republished or aborted are all present in the result pane.

  • All certificates in the lower part of the result pane have at least one publication with the status Error. If not, the Submit button is disabled.

Republish or abort certificate publication
  1. In the CC user interface in Certificate Manager, open the Action drop down list and select Republish or Abort.

  2. Select the certificates to be affected in the upper half of the result pane. (Press the Ctrl key on the keyboard to make multiple selections.) All publications for the chosen certificate(s) with the status Error will be affected.

  3. Click Add to move the certificate(s) to the lower half of the result pane.
  4. Click Submit.
  5. Enter your PIN code in Signature PIN.
  6. Click OK.
