Error: The certificate with thumbprint was not found. Http Status Code: BadRequest

leave a comment »

I’ve got this error today while publishing my azure cloud service project from visual studio.

The issue in my case was that the ssl certificate we used for https expired. We updated to a new one in the azure management web site but we didn’t update the visual studio project roles with the thumbprint of the new certificate.

To do this you first have to find the thumbprint of the new certificate: windows azure management web site -> cloud services -> yourservice -> configure -> scroll down to certificates and copy the thumbprint.

In visual studio, go to yourservice project -> roles file -> certificates -> now you should see your old thumbprint. Replace it with the new thumbprint and you are good to go.
