In Certificate Management option you will get an option to create New Certificate. Click on Create New to create new certificate. You can either use

  1. Self-signed identity
  2. Request for the Certificate

Let us go ahead and request for the Self-signed identity. In Self-signed identity window you need to provide following vital information,

  • Country
  • Type of the self-signed identity. In this choose Google Play as option. Other option available is Generic.
  • Configure Start Date and End Date
