Obtaining tasks from JIRA via HTTPS

Hi,

I am having a problem with HTTPS connection to JIRA server. The error message says 'sun.security.validator.ValidatorException: PKIX path building failed: sun.security.provider.certpath.SunCertPathBuilderException: unable to find valid certification path to requested target'. I imported server certificate to cacerts store withing IDEA JRE but this did not help.

Are there any additional steps required to make HTPPS connection work?

Hello zeiss,

How do you connect to JIRA server? Do you use JIRA Browser plugin for that?

I am trying to use Tasks integration with JIRA:

Have you tried, for example, the following manual?
http://confluence.atlassian.com/display/CONFKB/Unable+to+Connect+to+SSL+Services+due+to+PKIX+Path+Building+Failed+sun.security.provider.certpath.SunCertPathBuilderException

It seems that you have to add the certificate to the JDK, not JRE.
Also try to use not IDEA JDK, but your Sun JDK.

Importing certificate to IDEA's JRE is enough actually. I followed the instructions at http://confluence.atlassian.com/display/JIRA/Connecting+to+SSL+services and it worked as a charm.
