Applications Manager Plugin not accessible after enabling SSL in OpManager

If Applications Manager Plugin is not at all accessible using HTTPS port
  1. We have automated the steps to refer to OpManager's Keystore when SSL is enabled in OpManager. 
  2. Make sure that Applications Manager's server.xml file under <Applications Manager Home>\working\apache\tomcat\conf directory has keystorePath value as the absolute file path of  OpManager's keystore.
  3. If connector tag specific to SSL Configuration in server.xml file has keystoreType key, verify its value. (i.e.) the File type given in the keystorePath should belong to the value of the keystoreType.
  4. If the customer needs to use his own Keystore. Follow the below steps:
    Connect to the Applications Manager's database and execute the below query:
    UPDATE AM_GLOBALCONFIG SET VALUE = 'true' WHERE NAME = 'Plugin_CustomiseSSLConfiguration';
    Using your own Keystore:
         * Paste your Keystore file's absolute path as value for keystorePath in Applications Manager's server.xml under  <Applications Manager Home>\working\apache\tomcat\conf\backup directory.
         * Enter your keystore password as value for keystorePass in server.xml under <Applications Manager Home>\working\apache\tomcat\conf\backup directory

    Importing certificate to Applications Manager Plugin's default Keystore
          Follow this KB to import your own certificate to Applications Manager Plugin's keystore.
          Note: Make sure to update Keystore path and password in AppManager_Home\working\apache\tomcat\conf\server.xml with default keystore values i.e. Path and password of AppManager_Home\working\apache\tomcat\appmanager.keystore
NOTE: If encryptedKeystorePass key is already present there, update the key name with keystorePass.

If Applications Manager Plugin is accessible via HTTPS protocol but UI not loaded inside OpManager 
     Customers might be using a self-signed certificate or an untrusted domain certificate. Hence, try accessing Applications Manager with HTTPS using the Hostname from AMServer.properties file (located under <Applications Manager Home>\conf directory), in a separate tab in the same browser where OpManager is logged in.
Accept the risk warning page and proceed.
      Now logout OpManager, log in again and check the APPS tab.
