How do I update my certificate

Im new to Jira and Tomcat as I have taken over the admining of this server.  I need to update the cert on it as we are about to expire but I dont know what to do.  I was looking at docks and they talked about portecle but I am not finding anything to looks like a keystore to open.  The next option is to use openssl but Im not finding commands on how to find the cert or if I can just request a new csr and get my cert and then where to replace it.  Can anyone help?

Where is the cert being managed? If it is being managed in Java, I would recommend moving SSL termination to a reverse proxy server. It is far easier to manage certs this way and doesn't require a restart of the application. This will also allow you to bind to 443 and have the potentially less secure Java application run as an unprivileged user and listen on a high port. Atlassian has this well documented, and it's easy to set up.  They also have the process documented if you're terminating SSL in Tomcat.  I hope this helps.

Sorry.  I have been trying to dig through our install.  It looks like the cert is managed with java.  I found the old keystore file but have no clue as to the password since the default does not work.  I created a new keystore and imported my intermediate certs and the jira cert that expires in 2020. I ran the batch file and updated the keystore path, alias etc.  Saved it and made sure the changes were wrote to the server.xml file.  I restarted the jira and tomcat services but when I loaded the webpage the old cert is still being used.  Where can I look for the path that its using the old keystore still?
