Cloudflare Universal SSL ican only be used to secure the connection between vistors and the Cloudflare proxy. You need to secure your origin with either a valid certificate or a Cloudflare Origin CA certificate. Please review the Community Tutorial I shared. It explains in more detail.

So basically we need to manage SSL to origin server manually. Right?

Whether you use an automated option like Let’s Encrypt or a similar solution, a commercial certificate, or a Cloudflare Origin CA certificate is your choice. You will need to configure whichever method you choose.

Please give a details about. Install Origin CA certificate on origin server
