How do I push the network adapter signature certificate for Zscaler App using GPO?

The instructions below are relevant only if you have a strict GPO policy restricting the certificates that can be installed on your organization's devices.

Starting with Zscaler App 1.2, the network adapter certificate is automatically installed with the App. If you are using an earlier version of the App, you must add an install option (see details for MSI or EXE) to silently install the network adapter signature certificate along with the App.

If you have a strict GPO policy restricting the certificates that can be installed on your organization's devices, you must download the network adapter signature certificate from the Zscaler App Portal then import it into your system trust store to enable silent installation of the Zscaler App on your OU computers. See the instructions below.

Download the Network Adapter Signature Certificate

  1. From the Zscaler admin portal, go to Policy > Zscaler App Portal.
  2. In the Zscaler App portal, go to Administration, then to Zscaler App Store.
  3. Click Download Client Certificates at the top right hand corner.
  4. Save the certificates to a location of your choice.
