How to enable private key with certificate while exporting

I have a certificate within the Azure Key Vault, there was no option of selecting private key when downloading the certificate.

I tried to create a password with Certificate Export Wizard, I don't see an option to enable below.

    Hi @Umesh Vangapalli , Azure Key Vaults creates exportable or non-exportable certificate, depending on the policy:

    • The policy that's used to create the certificate must indicate that the key is exportable.
    • If the policy indicates that the key is non-exportable, then the private key isn't a part of the value when it's retrieved as a secret.

    On Certificate Export Wizard: The option "Yes, export the private key" will appear only if the private key is marked as exportable and you have access to the private key. More info:

    Either your private key is marked as non-exportable or you don't have access to the private key.
