Developing for Splunk Enterprise

C# SDK - ASP.NET Core 2.1 - The SSL connection could not be established

New Member

I am using SPLUNK SDK for C# (Splunk c# SDK ) in my ASP.NET core application. I am trying to connect to my localhost:8089 Splunk service via this SDK, but I get an exception saying:

System.Net.Http.HttpRequestException: The SSL connection could not be established, see inner exception.

And The inner exception says:

The remote certificate is invalid according to the validation procedure.

This SDK uses HTTP client under the hood, but I don't have access to this object to configure HttpClientHandler.

All my search on google ends up using ServicePointManager to bypass the SSL validation, but this solution doesn't work in Asp.Net core.

ServicePointManager.ServerCertificateValidationCallback = delegate { return true; };

Is there any way to bypass this validation in asp.Net core?
