show ssl cert

List certificates used on frontends.


List certificates used on frontends.

This command is useful for confirming that a certificate was updated correctly.

If a filename is prefixed by an asterisk in the result, it is a part of a transaction that has not yet been committed. Specify a filename to see details about a specific certificate. To display details on a transaction, prefix the filename with an asterisk.

HAProxy Enterprise can update an SSL certificate that it loaded into memory at startup. The workflow to update a certificate is:

  1. Start a transaction that uploads the local certificate file into memory using set ssl cert.

  2. Commit the transaction to update the certificate using commit ssl cert.

Use show ssl cert to see the file before and after committing it. Pending files have an asterisk before their names.


View certificates loaded into HAProxy Enterprise's runtime memory:

$ echo "show ssl cert" | \
   sudo socat stdio unix-connect:/var/run/hapee-2.0/hapee-lb.sock
# transaction
# filename

View a specific certificate:

$ echo "show ssl cert */etc/hapee-2.0/certs/site.pem" | \
   sudo socat stdio unix-connect:/var/run/hapee-2.0/hapee-lb.sock
Filename: */etc/hapee-2.0/certs/site.pem
