When you upload a custom certificate file, the vRealize Operations Manager interface displays summary information for all certificates in the file.

For a valid custom certificate file, you should be able to match issuer to subject, issuer to subject, back to a self-signed certificate where the issuer and subject are the same.

In the following example, OU=MBU,O=VMware\, Inc.,CN=vc-ops-slice-32 is issued by OU=MBU,O=VMware\, Inc.,CN=vc-ops-intermediate-32, which is issued by OU=MBU,O=VMware\, Inc.,CN=vc-ops-cluster-ca_33717ac0-ad81-4a15-ac4e-e1806f0d3f84, which is issued by itself.
