IssueHow to change the URL for downloading user certificates
ResolutionFor Sentry CA 3.6:
Sentry CA 3.6 uses the variable "target_url" to set the download URL for an issued cert.  This is done by setting up a variable "target_url", e.g.
               
[@target_url=whatever.xuda]

in the file authorize-request.xuda (located in ...\SentryCA\WebServer\Admin-server\ca\admin\). This will specify the  page or URL (eg. "whatever.xuda") that displays the cert as issued via the "Issue Certificate" button (in "View/Certify Pending Certificate Request" page).

In the absence of explicitly setting the target_url variable, Sentry assumes the default which is "view-cert.xuda" (set in strong.exe).
For Sentry CA 3.7:
The target_url variable is not used in Sentry CA 3.7.  Instead, the default download URL is specified by the value of "window.location.href" in the file, "req-quthorize.xuda" (located in ..\SentryCA\WebServer\admin-server\ca\cert-ops\).

In standard Sentry CA 3.7, users are directed to "/ca/cert-ops/cert-view.html". If you want to specify another URL for issuing a cert, change the link in "window.location.href" to a page or URL where users can obtain their client certificates.
