I've written previously about using CloudFlare to get a free SSL certificate for your site. That works really well in most situations, but it appears that when using the free edge certificate from CloudFlare, the Google Cloud Platform console rejects those certificates.

This is the error that is displayed when trying to upload the edge certificate:
 Error
The SSL certificate provided could not be inserted.

The reason it doesn't work is because Google doesn't trust the CloudFlare origin certificate.

So according to CloudFlare the only thing to do is wait until Google resolves the issue...
We've reached out to Google regarding this policy decision and will update this article if the behavior changes.
