Building for the Splunk Platform

In splunkcloud on 8089 using private ca and python, why are the calls failing?


Hi, our site is and we are not able to use the python sdk because ssl calls are failing as CA cert is not listed in CAcerts.pem of python directory.

we don't have the splunk private ca. so how can we skip it in code?
this is on windows python 2.7.14

File "C:\Python27\lib\", line 840, in do_handshake
ssl.SSLError: [SSL: CERTIFICATE_VERIFY_FAILED] certificate verify failed (_ssl.c:661)

Process finished with exit code 1
