Azure Web Role - Coveo Certificate Path

What is the best way to define the SSLCertificatePath for Coveo when you are using a hosted service and the file path is not known? Can I use virtual paths or define a different certificate that is a verified SSL certificate off of the domain?

It is not fully supported for the moment so the only way to do it is to manually update the path once the VM is created.

Coveo R&D are working on it but there are no clear ETA for now. To stay updated, please refer to the release notes:

As @Simon said, we are changing the way the REST endpoint works. Also the configuration section is changing and the SSLCertificatePath is going to disappear. It is planned for the november 2014 release.

If the host where CES is installed (CES host) is not the same host as the Sitecore instance (Sitecore host), we recommend copying the SSL certificate from the CES host to the Sitecore host and then set the SSLCertificatePath to target the Sitecore host SSL certificate.

The SSL certificate can be found in the \Config\Certificates subfolder of the CES index folder (e.g. C:\CES7\Config\Certificates\cert-iis.p12).
