  • Client Certificate has been enabled on port 444.
  • Please ensure that the authentication type as specified below, and your public certificate has been selected in Shared Web Server settings.

  1. Selecting the correct authentication type: Please note that the first option for Client Certificate in below screenshot refers to Client Certificate authentication, while the second option (enclosed in a red rectangle) refers to Client Certificate Header. This is a known bug, and we have an open case with Boomi support.
  2. IP Filtering: IP filtering is not available when using Client Certificate authentication. If you wish to use IP filtering and do not wish to use basic authentication, Client Certificate Header is the only option available on SF hosted Atom Clouds.
