How to perform export and import of keystores between environments / to another vro via rest (or other)?

Edit: Edited the title as adding and deleting keys / certs via either rest or vro script is fine, had just mentioned the management of keys as an umbrella for this question.

No idea how you would do this without trying to dump keystore content to a resource element and try and pass that around vros, recreating the keystores from that.

I've looked at the control-center api. You can download package signing keystore.

vro7601:~ # curl -k --output '1.keystore' -X POST --header 'Content-Type: application/x-www-form-urlencoded' --header 'Accept: application/x-gzip' -d 'password=Password123!' -u 'root:Password123!' 'https://vro7601.vlab.local:8283/vco-controlcenter/api/certificates/export'

100  8287    0  8262  100    25  16657     50 --:--:-- --:--:-- --:--:-- 16674

Can't seem to download a keystore any other way.

vro7601:~ # curl -k -X GET --header 'Accept: application/json' -u 'root:Password123!' 'https://vro7601.vlab.local:8283/vco-controlcenter/api/ssl/import/keystore/cakeystore-id'


What ways has anyone successfully managed keystores?

Mainly looking for vRO 7.5/7.6 but would be interested to see if anyone tackled it in 8.1 too.

Just wondering how any other vro users are working with keys, certs and keystores?
