Send HTTPS request from AEM

Avatar

Level 1

Hi AEM Community,

I have a problem sending an HTTPS requests from my AEM instance to other endpoints. If I send an HTTP, then everything is fine, but when an HTTPS then I got an exception:

javax.net.ssl.SSLHandshakeException: sun.security.validator.ValidatorException: PKIX path building failed: sun.security.provider.certpath.SunCertPathBuilderException: unable to find valid certification path to requested target

So:

http://mysite.com/blog/get     -  is fine

https://mysite.com/blog/get   -  throws an exception

Thanks for your help in advance.

For Self signed certificate you can follow the steps under "Generating a Private Key/Certificate Pair to Use with the Wizard" at [1]

On a live system, the certificate should be provided by your IT team

Looks like AEM is not able to find the valid certificate for the https request. Make sure the certificate is valid. Also, Have you tried the SSL By Default setup?

You can check if your certificate is in the Keystore by running the following command:

keytool -list -keystore "%JAVA_HOME%/jre/lib/security/cacerts"
