Trusted certificate management
DPA 2020.2 has added an option to view and manage trusted certificates that may be used in securing communications to databases. DPA can view certificates in the Java Trust Store. It can view and manage certificates (e.g., import and delete) in its own DPA Trust Store and restrict certificates to be Database specific. Currently, only PostgreSQL registrations can take advantage of DPA Trust Store certificates. All other types still leverage those in the Java Trust Store.
Certificate file types supported to import into the DPA Trust Store include:
- PKCS#12 (*.pf2 or *.pfx)
- JKS (*.jks)
- JCEKS (*.jceks)
- DER (*.der or *.cer)
- PEM (*.pem, *.crt, *.ca-bundle)

- Download the DPA 2020.2 software as either a trial from SolarWinds.com or from the SolarWinds Customer Portal.
- PostgreSQL Licensing: Monitoring PostgreSQL only requires a SolarWinds Category 2 license - i.e. the same license used to monitor SQL Server, MySQL, or Oracle SE instances. You can also use a Category 1 license if that is what you have available. If you don't have any unused licenses available, you can also "float" a license being used with another database to use to monitor a PostgreSQL Cluster instead.
