Continuous Integration Using Salesforce DX: Create Your Connected App

I noticed that there is no link in this Trailhead for OpenSSL for Windows.  It simpy says "Windows complete package.exe installer" with no link. What's the suggestion or recommendation for those of us on Windows?

Thank you.

For anyone else who comes across this...I was able to get all of this to work.

I used this project for OpenSSL on my Windows 10 machine:

https://sourceforge.net/projects/openssl/

Two points:
Unzip the file to C:\OpenSSL
Copy openssl.cnf from C:\OpenSSL\bin to C:\OpenSSL

I'm sure there are ways to get around these two actions; but I wanted to try and move forward vs. getting bogged down in the minutiae of trying to learn how to configure the openssl.cnf file.

Better late then never...

You can find the "Windows complete package.exe installer" here: http://gnuwin32.sourceforge.net/packages/openssl.htm

The following link is almost the same as the instructions in the unit, but only on the heroku website: https://devcenter.heroku.com/articles/ssl-certificate-self

On Windows, replace openssl with "C:\OpenSSL instalation path\openssl.exe", then it will work in CMD.

I have the impression that the information is unneccessary for Windows, it might be for other OS's too?

Hi,

Please see the blog below. A detailed explanation of how to use OpenSSL and authenticate using sfdx for continuous integration.
