Create a Certificate Template

A Certificate Template is used to issue device certificates with the Subject Name in the PEM format required by the Netskope VPN server. For this procedure you'll need the OU (Tenant) and O (Organization Name) values from the Netskope UI (Settings > Security Cloud Platform > Netskope Client > MDM Distribution > Certificate Setup)

To create a Certificate Template:

  1. In the AirWatch console, go to Devices > Certificates > Certificate Authorities, click Request Templates, and then click Add.

  2. Enter these parameters:

    • Name: Enter a unique name.

    • Certificate Authority: Select the CA you created previously for issuing device certificates.

    • Subject Name: CN=<EmailAddress>,E=<EmailAddress>,OU=<Tenant OU>,O=<Organization Name>,L=<Location>,T=<State>,C=<Country>.

      Use the OU and O values from the Netskope UI.


      Location (L), State (ST), and country (C) must be unique for your CA.
