When you provision a SharePoint 2013 site to a customer, you can specify that the site be accessed using HTTPS and select the certificate to use for the site. To make certificates available for provisioning customer sites, you perform the following tasks:
  • On the SharePoint farm server, create the required IP addresses and install the required certificates
  • In the control panel, assign the certificates to the appropriate IP addresses and specify the access level of the certificate (available to all customers or dedicated to a single customer)
  1. From the Services Manager menu bar, click Services > SharePoint 2013 > Certificates.
  2. Under Sync, click Retrieve IP Addresses, then click Retrieve Certificates. By default, all certificates are marked as Reserved until they are configured.
  3. In the certificates table, click Edit for the certificate you want to configure.
  4. In IP Address, select the IP address you want to assign to the certificate.
  5. In Access, select one of the following options:
    • Reserved: The certificate is unavailable for use by any customer.
    • Public: The certificate is available for use by any customer.
    • Dedicated Customer: The certificate is available for use only by a specific customer. When you select this option, enter the Customer to whom you are allocating the certificate.
  6. Click Save.
