When trying to promote a project or resource on a system that was accessed through a secure connection, they receive an error message. PKIX path building failed: unable to find valid certification path to requested target

On the destination GoAnywhere server, click on the Tools menu. Then Click on ‘Manage SSL Certificates’. Open the ‘Default private key’ and click on the appropriate key. Then Export the certificate to your desktop. You may wish to highlight the alias & copy it to your clipboard as you will need it later.

Next, on the Source GoAnywhere server, Click on the Tools Menu and then click on Manage SSL Certificates. Click on “Default Trusted Certificate” and then “Import” the file from your desktop.

The last step is to restart the GoAnywhere server. Restarting will pull in the imported certificate and now you should be able to promote using a secure connection.
