Self-Signed certificates required for intergrating API Management and App Gateway

Hi all,

This might be a lot to ask. But can anyone take me through (or point me to an existing user guide) on how to integrate API management and Application gateway with regards to using self-signed certificates required please?

I'm fairly new to Azure in general, so I really need a step by step guide. I'm trying to follow Microsoft documentation, but it's confusing for me regarding which certificates go where. The guides on making self-signed certificates, and the guides on integrating a API Management with a Application Gateway are separate, and it's proving difficult for me to understand how to combine the two.

I will be using self-signed certificates (making the certificates myself). I have a custom domain already set up on GoDaddy with A records for the Portal and the Manager.

I already have a API Management, with a private DNS zones created with A records for the Portal, API and Manager. The API management is inside a subnet inside a vnet. And there's a subnet (inside same vnet) ready to go for the App Gateway. there's also a public IP ready.

So a guide on firstly, how to create the certificates, then a guide on how to create the Application Gateway, mostly highlighting which certificates go where for the Backend Settings and the Listeners. And if a certificate needs to go on the API management to match.

I've been going round in circles for 4 days now haha, so I'm desperate for any advice. If anymore information is needed, please ask. At the moment, I'm even not sure what you guys would need to know. Thank you!
