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:
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.
Hope you found this post useful...
