Azure Key Value Password Error

Copper Contributor

I am having some trouble downloading a test SSL Cert that I add to secrets.


About a week ago the only way to get a cert out of secrets was to use powershell. You have now added a new feature to download them straight from the online interface.


Here are the steps I am taking:


1. Adding the PFX to secrets - entering in the password for the pfx file and adding a name "mapcheckdisclousesource"


2. Opening up the pane to look at the secret details.

3. Click "Download as a certificate" to test the feature. We would rather not use powershell to have to pull the secrets from the vault.

4. After downloading, I open the file and enter the password. The Same password I put into AKV to upload the pfx file.

It looks that when you are using the "Download as a certificate" button the private key is not password protected at all. It is not using the password that was provided during the upload, try with blank password.

I would consider this as a bug, but there may be a concept behind.
