Viewing SSL/TLS certificates for your Amazon Lightsail distribution

Last updated: July 23, 2020

You can view the Amazon Lightsail SSL/TLS certificates that you created for your Lightsail distributions. You do this by accessing the management page of any distribution in the Lightsail console.

For more information about SSL/TLS certificates, see SSL/TLS certificates in Lightsail.

Prerequisites

Before you get started, you need to create a Lightsail distribution. For more information, see Creating Amazon Lightsail distributions and Content delivery network distributions in Amazon Lightsail.

You also should have created an SSL/TLS certificate for your distribution. For more information, see Creating SSL/TLS certificates for your Amazon Lightsail distribution.

View your distribution SSL/TLS certificates

Complete the following procedure to view your distribution SSL/TLS certificates.

  1. Sign in to the Lightsail console.

  2. On the Lightsail home page, choose the Networking tab.

  3. Choose the name of a distribution.

    You can view all of your certificates regardless of the distribution you choose.

  4. Choose the Custom domains tab on your distribution's management page.

  5. Scroll down to the Certificates section of the page.

    All of your distribution certificates are listed under the Certificates section of the page. Choose Show details to view your certificate's important dates, encryption details, identification, and validation records. Your certificates are valid for 13 months from the date you created them, after which time Lightsail attempts to automatically revalidate them. Don't delete the CNAME records that you added to your domain because they are required when your certificate is re-validated on the Valid until date listed.

    After you have a valid SSL/TLS certificate to use with your distribution, you should enable custom domains so that you can use the domain names of the certificate on your distribution. For more information, see Enabling custom domains for your Amazon Lightsail distributions.
