    Self-Signed SSL Cert

    Forrest Evans

      Is there any way to get the WDC browser in Tableau to access an https site that has a self-signed certificate?  I don't have the option to get it signed as this is just a lab environment.

          I was able to assign a trusted cert to the endpoint, but still getting an SSL Handshake Error.  Below is the error log.  Any thoughts on how I can get the WDC past an SSL handshake?

            Hello Evans,

             

            I seem to be having the same problem with my WDC. The API calls seem to work fine the simulator but when called from the Tableau Desktop, I get an error "Network error occurred: Error 6 (SSL handshake failed)".

             

            Were you able to get a solution for this problem?
