  • 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?

if you want to verify the certificate of your splunk cloud instance with curl then follow these advices from the author of curl: https://daniel.haxx.se/blog/2018/11/07/get-the-ca-cert-for-curl/
