How to Disable SSL Validation in Gitlab Add-on?

Path Finder

I am facing following error while trying to collect logs from gitlab add on. Can anyone help me disable it. Changing the verify=True to False tor Http request function in did not help as suggested on other similar question on this issue.

Hello iparitosh,

even if there is a way to disable certificate validation, I suggest first to try to set your local certificate root storage. To confirm that this is a root storage related issue please try this command in shell:

curl -v

if you see a certificate validation error message then you need to update your root certificate storage (google "update ca-certificates your-linux-distro-name-and-version")

if you can connect to using curl without problem then it is not a cert root storage issue and you have to check other things.
