I have a test PI environment on a cloud platform which I can access through a public IP address.
As it is a test environment, I have used the Osisoft self signed certificate for PI Web API and PI Vision.
When I access PI Vision from my local machine, I get the usual certificate error, but that is ok.
The problem is, form live library:
Though the installation program can create a self-signed certificate, XY plots and events tables require third-party certificates; they cannot use self-signed certificates.
Originally, I was not able to visualize the events table, indeed. However, I found out that adding an entry for the server name in the machine hosts file can solve this problem locally.
So, I was wondering if my certificate had an "Subject Alternative Name" for the public IP address then maybe I would not need the hosts file to have these symbols working for every user.
This would be particularly interesting for mobile devices.
Considering all that, I would like some feedback from the community on this scenario and maybe some help on creating another certificate on my own containing the SAN for the public IP as needed.
