Client needs to have a self-signed certificated added to the CF environment in their dedicated region.
This is needed to be able to access resources on external (to Bluemix) servers in SoftLayer that the client manages. Resources on these servers need to be accessed over https during CF operations (such as application staging) and by runtime operations. Without the self-signed certificates, the connections over https are not trusted and are failing, most likely due to security prompts. (The same connections over http: are working fine.)
One example of what the client is doing is specifying a custom buildpack on the CF push (ie, -b https://buildpack.mycustomdomain.com). CF is not able to download the buildpack due to the un-trusted connection.
Without having the certificate in CF, the https requests to the client-managed external servers will not be trusted and the connections will fail.
