  4. Configure the following text boxes.
    Option Description

    PEM-format SSL Certificate (Optional) If your REST resource is running on a server that has a self-signed certificate or a certificate not trusted by a public certificate authority and is using HTTPS, add the SSL certificate in PEM format here.
