SSL Certificate showing as not in use


I just finished generating a Certificate through AWS Certificate Manager but the column "In Use?" shows "No". How can I change this to put the certificate in "Yes"? Thanks in advance for any help. It is the first time I am using AWS and it is so confusing...

You should use your certificate in a supported AWS service. Then, the status will change.

Please refer to the AWS Certificate Manager documentation:

You cannot install your ACM certificate directly on your AWS based website or application.

ACM certificates are supported by the following services:

  • Elastic Load Balancing
  • Amazon CloudFront
  • Amazon Cognito
  • AWS Elastic Beanstalk
  • AWS App Runner
  • Amazon API Gateway
  • AWS Nitro Enclaves
  • AWS CloudFormation
  • AWS Amplify
  • Amazon OpenSearch Service
