Resolution for Orchestrator API connection error "| Python | certificate verify failed: unable to get local issuer certificate" .
Issue Description: hile making an Orchestrator API call from Python and Postman applications, error is thrown "HTTPSConnectionPool(host='abc.xyz.com', port=443): Max retries exceeded with url: /api/account/authenticate (Caused by SSLError(SSLCertVerificationError(1, '[SSL: CERTIFICATE_VERIFY_FAILED] certificate verify failed: unable to get local issuer certificate (_ssl.c:1129)'))"
Root Cause: Identified it to be an issue with the Python Certificate module where the local certificates are not included when using the certifi module. More info here - Added support to load certificate from the Windows Certificate store .
Resolution: Install the above 2 libraries
- These 2 libraries would patch pip and requests at runtime to use certificates from the default system store (rather than the bundled certs ca)
