CA Operations Guide

The EJBCA CA UI allows you to access a wide range of administrative functions, grouped by menu category below.

Note that the CA UI allows setting up CAs and profiles, while the RA UI covers all aspects of End Entity creation and life-cycle management.

CA Administration

The first page of the CA UI displays status information for the publish queue and the CAs. The information to be displayed can be configured under My Preferences.

Publisher Queue Status

The Publish queue status shows the current number of publish events stored in the publisher queue. Events can be stored in the publisher queue either because publishing failed, or because publishing goes to the queue directly.

CA Status

The CA health status overview indicates if CAs are off-line and if CRLs are invalid, using the following columns:

CA Service: A red error indicates that the CA is not on-line or the CA token is not on-line. External CAs are always shown as ok. If the CA or CA token is not on-line, check the CA activation page to see if the CA can be activated.

CRL Status: A red error indicates that a CRL or delta CRL has expired without a new one being created. Note that delta CRLs are only monitored if used. For information on generating new CRLs, see CRL Generation.
