How to Remove the SSL Certificate from Alteryx Server


How do you remove the existing SSL certificate from the Alteryx Server if it expires and needs to be replaced?


  • Alteryx Server
    • All versions

Part 1 - Unbind the Certificate From the Http Port 443

1. From Windows, go to Search, type in cmd and right-click to run Run As Administrator.

2. Review the binding with this command:
netsh http show sslcert

3. Remove the binding with this command:
netsh http delete sslcert ipport=

4. Check to see that the binding is removed:
netsh http show sslcert

Part 2 - Remove the Certificate From Mmc.exe

1. From Windows, go to Search > type in mmc.exe and run with Run As Administrator.

2. Go to File > Add/Remove Snap-in.

3. In the "Available Snap-Ins" column, choose Certificates > Add.  Then choose Computer Account and click Next.

4. In the "Select Computer" console, choose "Local Computer: (the computer this console is running on)" and click "Finish".

5. Click "Ok" all the way out.

6. Back in Console Root, expand Certificates (Local Computer) > Personal > Certificates.
Note: This location is where knowledge base article

7. Look for the certificate in the center column and right-click to Delete.

8. Once the expired SSL certificate has been unbound and removed, please review knowledge base article Configuring Alteryx Server for SSL: Obtaining and Installing Certificates  to configure the new SSL certificate.
