After not finding a good resoure online and having to ask a colleague here is what he has told me to do:
- Start the app in the browser. Instead of the app content Chrome displays a security warning “Your connection is not private”
- Click on the “Not secure” field
- Click on certificate
- Select the “Details” tab
- Click on “copy to file” button. The wizard opens
- Safe certificate as a file (go with the defaults)
- Use the default format and save to a file of your choice.
- Open the saved certificate file with doubleclick
- Go with “Current User” and click next.
- Add certificate to the windows certificate store. Make sure to select “Trusted Root Certification Authorities”. (Disclaimer: I don’t really like to add dev certificates to that store because they are definitely not CA Authorities, but the other stores do not seem to work. If you find a better way feel free to send me an email or Twitter message)
- Finish the installation
- Confirm security warning with yes. (like I said above. Please tell me if you have a better solution)
- Restart Chrome and try again.
- Chrome should be happy now, show the lock-symbol instead of the warning and load your application!
