ACTUAL BEHAVIOR
---------------
Alias or password specified for keystore template is not correct

After importing a certificate into the keystore using keytool, unable to add the Key to OAM via the Configuration >> Federation Settings. When adding the Key from the keystore to the Federation setting I get the following error "The alias or password specified for keystore template is not correct".

==================
Right now can get things to work if we add both an encryption certificate and a signing certificate locally.

But what is needed with our partner is to have OAM (as the SP) provide the encryption cert (which we can do) and then use a signing cert from our partner (who is the IdP). Their signing cert doesn't have a password, but when we try to import their signing cert into the keystore it works, but in the UI we can't add it as we will constantly get the following response:

The alias or password specified for keystore template is not correct

There is no password for the cert, so this error doesn't make sense.
