I'm setting up a test environment for hub on an Azure hosted VM.
I've got it installed and running, created a self signed certificate that's installed on both the server and my local machine.
Logging in through the browser works fine and I don't get the security messages I would expect to get if the certificate wasn't installed on my local machine. However, designer doesn't want to connect to hub at all. It just says "Could not connect to Analytics Hub" each time. I've tried the root site and specific sites.
Are there any special steps to get designer to use the self signed certificate I may have missed? Anything else to check?
It sounds like you have gone through the steps I would expect to connect successfully from Designer. You will need to specify the URL including https:// and the site name in Designer or you will encounter the error you mention. A couple additional thoughts:
Did you open the specified ports on the machine where you installed Hub?
Are there any spaces or characters in the site name that require encoding in the URL?
If you inspect the cert in your browser, does it have any errors?
Navigate to Hub URL
Click the lock icon in front of the URL
Let me know if you are still having issues, and I'm happy to help troubleshoot further.
Thanks Bryce - I'm assuming I either have something wrong with the self signed SSL certs or it doesn't like me just using the server's public IP as the web page. I'm happy to let you look at it as is if you're wanting to use my issues as feedback but my plan is to just wait till I have a time later this week or next to set up a real URL and real SSL cert.
