Splunk App and Add-on for AppDynamics: Where do I need to place AppDynamics certificates in order to configure HTTPS?

Path Finder

When I am configuring HTTPS url in the Splunk Add-on for AppDynamics, I'm getting SSL certificate error. I placed certificates in tempcerts folder but still I'm getting same error. Can anyone please let me know how I can resolve this issue?

I added the self-signed root certificate authority to the end of the cacert.pem file, but am still getting the error. Any other suggestions?

Do you have a proxy server between the forwarder and AppDynamics controller? If so, you'll need to configure that in the add-on's settings.

I believe the certs will need to be in the cert store for the operating system. The input will try to use OS certificate store to validate the server certificate. Hope this helps...

I need to provide my AppD secure URL as a input to Add-on. When I provide https URL, I'm getting SSL certificate error. Can you please let me know where I need to import\place AppD certificate on AppD app directory ?

Secure method:
append your CA's certificate that had signed the AppDynamics web_server cert to the TA’s list of trusted + verified providers in this file: $SPLUNK_HOME/etc/apps/Splunk_TA_AppDynamics/bin/splunk_ta_appdynamics/requests/cacert.pem

-OR-
Insecure method aka "Luuudicrous Mode."
Disable SSL verify
$SPLUNK_HOME/etc/apps/Splunk_TA_AppDynamics/bin/splunk_ta_appdynamics/modinput_wrapper/base_modinput.py

line 474:

headers=headers, cookies=cookies, verify=True, cert=cert

Change to:

headers=headers, cookies=cookies, verify=False, cert=cert
