Hello @priyadarshan123

use --cacert to point curl to the ca cert file

curl --cacert cert.pem https://cloud.address xxxxxx

  • where you run curl command (windows, linux, interactive or within a script?)?
  • do you get an insecure error message?
  • where are the "own self signed certificates"? - on the splunk side or on the client side?

Hi @PavelP, I run curl within a go program, I do not do client-side verification of the
certificates, but if I want to do then what are the steps to retrieve the certificates?
