Is it possible to use Cloudflare-issued certificate outside of Cloudflare?


We have a web/mobile application and need an SSL certificate for it. We host the website on Cloudflare and use a Cloudflare-issued SSL certificate. But we also have API Gateway outside of Cloudflare and need to protect it with the same certificate so clients can trust it.
Is it possible to export the SSL certificate and the private key from Cloudflare and use them externally?

Short answer, no.

The only certificates you can download are Origin Certificates which are not publicly trusted and only work only if the hostname is proxied through Cloudflare.
