Updating SharePoint authentication certificate

Note

This article is only relevant if you use the SharePoint integration with the software-as-service version of Signavio Process Manager.

As described in detail at Updating your Collaboration Hub certificates to SHA-256 with RSA encryption, we will change the required authentication certificates to SHA-256 with RSA-encrypted certificates on December 15, 2016.

You need to update the certificates in your SharePoint Web Part by then. Otherwise, the Web Part will no longer be able to authenticate against the Signavio SaaS server.
