Bulk import of S/MIME certs


  • Used Zammad version: 3.6.x
  • Used Zammad installation source: package
  • Operating system: Debian 10.8
  • Browser + version: Chrome (latest)

Expected behavior:

I want to import about 100 S/MIME certs used by colleagues in my company. I’d expect either a command line tool for achieving this or the web interface to allow uploading a concatenated PEM file with all certs.

Actual behavior:

No obvious command line tool for mass import nor any sign of the web interface importing any but the first cert of a concatenated PEM.

Steps to reproduce the behavior:

Just try to import multiple PEM files without clicking until the arzt kommt.

Sorry for the wait.
I’m afraid you gotta call a medic in this case.

There’s no mass import support for S/MIME.
I’ve checked the rails console on this regard, but it’s very complicated and technically (prune to errors) which is why I can’t recommend it.

I’d suggest the API as alternative.
Not documented as well, but if you use your browsers developer console within the network tab you can see how the requests are built. I hope that helps at least a little.
