SSLerror when running Target API with Python

Avatar

Level 3

I'm able to connect and get API responses with an API client (Insomnia).

However, I keep getting an SSL error when trying to do the same with Python. Anyone managed to get it to work without the SSL error or using verify=false?

 

This is the error I get:

 

SSLError: HTTPSConnectionPool(host='mc.adobe.io', port=443): Max retries exceeded with url: /sunlifeassurance/target/activities/ (Caused by SSLError(SSLError("bad handshake: Error([('SSL routines', 'tls_process_server_certificate', 'certificate verify failed')])")))

Are you able to download the cert from https://mc.adobe.io/ and reference to it in the verify param? Not a python expert and not sure what library you are using.

I'm able to download the public cert and private key but I'm stuck there as to what to do next. Unfortunately, I am not a python expert either, just started with Spyder (Python 3.7)

Are you using import requests ? If so, requests.get("https://...", verify='my_trust_store.pem')

I'm guessing I'd have to convert the public cert to a .pem file?

I am pretty sure it would accept a .cer local location. https://requests.readthedocs.io/en/master/user/advanced/ take look at Client Side Certificates.

I don't have scripts that I run with Adobe often enough to not have to research this each time I do it; see below for the process that I noted for myself next time I had to run the script. I did find working with the Postman templates that they share quite helpful: https://developers.adobetarget.com/api/#admin-postman-collection:~:text=Admin%20Postman%20Collection...

 

Steps to get the access token:
> 1. Find private key: /file-path-to-key/private.key
>> Note that if you don't have private key that is still valid, you'll need to get a new one here:
