A2HS self-signed certificate

more options

I did all the steps required in the checklist to enable A2HS to the website of my application:

To be served over HTTPs — the web is increasingly being moved in a more secure direction, and many modern web technologies (A2HS included) will work only on secure contexts. To have a manifest file with the correct fields filled in, linked from the HTML head. To have an appropriate icon available for displaying on the Home screen.

Still, the icon does not show up.

I suspect that a self-signed certificate might be the issue, for the documentation does not make clear whether or not the certificate needed to be issued from a CA. Only that it must be served over https.

Am I correct in my assumption?

Nevermind,

I was looking around and did realise that A2HS is a subset of PWA and upon further investigation in the topic, I found that it must be served over a "SECURE HTTPS DOMAIN", which I assume it means: yes, the certificate must be issued by a CA.
