How to resolve Issues/error with HEC

Hello,

I have a user wanted to send the logs via HEC to Splunk cloud via HF.I created a token on HF and shared the token, index and HF end point, when the user is sending a test event with CURL, it is getting successful and i can see the event but when the user is trying to send via logstash, we are seeing java cert error.

My question is whether user can output to regular http and not use ssl?

Error Message:

message=>"xxxx path building failed: sun.security.provider.certpath.SunCertPathBuilderException: unable to find valid certification path to requested target"

Looking for suggestions.

 

Thanks.

As a work around, we turned off the https on our HF which eventually resolved the error and this HF is connected to Splunk Cloud which is encrypted.
