Can I use a wildcard certificate for configuring an SSL connection to Active Directory? Edited

We have a Jira Test site up and running 7.5  In addition to upgrading to the latest version we want to incorporate the "Internal Directory with LDAP Authentication" directory over SSL. 

We have a wildcard certificate issued by Go-Daddy and I'm wondering if it can be used to accomplish the above?

If so any links to guides on how to accomplish this?

Much appreciated.

The normal guide applies:

Are you experiencing anything wrong in particular? This should be straight forward with a few tries. :) 

To dramatically over-simplify: Jira will need to 'trust' the certificates of the applications that it is connecting to. You do this by importing the certificate chain of the application into Jira's keystore.

If you do not do this, typically you'll wind up seeing errors like this:
