Failed to request public certificate in ACM

0

Hello, I'm requesting a public certificate to my application load balancer. I provided the domain url: *.us-east-2.elb.amazonaws.com and kept other entries as default. Now the request failed with below error message: Additional verification required to request certificates for one or more domain names in this request. Please advise.

You can only create acm certificates for domains you own and control.

For example www.example.com

You’d have to own example.com

Here you point www.example.com using a cname or alias to your alb dns record.

You do not own us-east-2.elb.amazonaws.com.

Thanks @Gary Mclean, but is there any workaround to provide alb url in https ?

  • You could upload a self signed certificate to acm and then attach to the alb. However it’s only self singed so the browser would display a security warning. I’d only do this for testing. Alternatively buy yourself a cheap domain for testing and create a publicly signed acm certificate
