If you want to inspect the HTTP requests, you can terminate the SSL session on the load balancer and then create a new SSL session towards the cell pool.

  • In PEM format, or

  2. Select HTTPS type from the drop-down menu.
  3. Verify that Enable SSL Passthrough is not selected.
  4. Verify that Configure Service Certificate is selected.
