export and import a certificate with no private key

Hello guys,

i need to export a certificate from one fortigate to the fortigate's lab environment but all the guidelines talk about the private key:


my problem is that the certificate doesn't have a private key and if i download it via gui, once exported to the lab's fortigate it gives me an error (failed to import).

The certificate is configured as below with NO private key:


FORTIGATE (SAML_AZURE_CERT) # sh full-configuration config vpn certificate local edit "SAML_AZURE_CERT" set comments '' unset private-key unset certificate set range global set source user set source-ip set ike-localid-type asn1dn set enroll-protocol none next end


how can i export and import this certificate without generating a new csr?


Thanks for your reply
