bypassCertValidation is not doing bypass

I’ve been trying to use bypassCertValidation = True in, but I’m not able to reach the responce.

I have this Provider EndPoint with SSL Redirected that is in fact an Ignition Server with Web Service module. Even though I have a self signed cert in that gateway. I’m able to reach the response content via 3rd party software using a similar option to bypassCertValidation = True.

However I’m struggling the reach the response with Ignition System Functions. I have no errors when executing, in fact I’m having a empty string as response. What am I missing?

Script that returns empty string

url = 'http://ip:port/system/ws/rest/endpoint'
contentType = 'application/json'
putData = '{"site":site1}'
print, contentType, putData, bypassCertValidation = True)

As soon as I change the config to not redirect to SSL, the script works. Remember that the 3rd Party consumer works ok for both, using or not SSL Redirect at the EndPoint.

When using the https and http port got an error:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<input>", line 4, in <module>
IOError: Unsupported or unrecognized SSL message

When using the https and https port got an error as weel:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<input>", line 4, in <module>
IOError: Server returned HTTP response code: 405 for URL: https://localhost:8043/system/ws/rest/remote

Why are you not using httpClient ? It is the solution to numerous limitations in the old httpPut and httpGet functions.

I don’t see any evidence that bypassCertValidation isn’t working.

It seems like when you actually communicate with the endpoint, using https and https port, you get a HTTP 405 indicating that PUT isn’t accepted.

Is just for testing. Thanks for the remind that there are new and better functions for this.

You’re right, I’m not sure what I was doing wrong but now is totally working. Thanks for the help
