Keystore-file with HTTPS with IP-address and port

This question is in advance to

I access my Confluence instance via browser over IP and port. E.g. Now I want to access my Confluence via HTTPS at

My question is what do I have to set for CN in the keystore-file? Do I have to include the port like CN="" or not like CN="".

Hi Boris, the certificate itself is not port aware. You should include just the hostname when asked to fill the CN information.
