SSL Certificate Issue - can I ignore it?

I am trying to connect to a server on my home network.  It is HTTPS and there is some problem with the certificate.  However I know it is safe and I want to connect to it with Power BI.

 

I get this error message.

Details: "The underlying connection was closed: Could not establish trust relationship for the SSL/TLS secure channel."

 

I note there are some advanced settings where I can set some http request header parameters.  Is there some setting here that I can use to ingore the certificate issue and allow me to connect?

Re: SSL Certificate Issue - can I ignore it?

Hi Matt,

 

Try this:

 

Clear the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) state. To do this, follow these steps:

  1. In Internet Explorer, click Tools, and then click Internet Options.
  2. Click the Content tab, and then click Clear SSL state.

Or 

 

You can ignore the certificate issue and it will let you connect to the PowerBI.com

Re: SSL Certificate Issue - can I ignore it?

Matt,

I've got a question - I've got some internal servers that are safe, but don't have any certificates (and I've been told getting those would take a MASSIVE effort) on those servers.  Is that what you mean by safe?

I've tried the solution here to no avail, I don't know if I should try again (for the 4th time?)

Any thoughts?

Sorry, I don't have any more knowledget other than what was shared in this thread.  But yes, when I say "I know it is safe" I mean it is my server and I trust it, with or without certificates.  A certificate only helps me trust servers I don't know.

Re: SSL Certificate Issue - can I ignore it?

Is this the only solution? I've tried it and it hasn't worked. I am using "Get Date - Web" to hit an API from an internal server. It is coming back with the "The underlying connection was closed: Could not establish trust relationship for the SSL/TLS secure channel" error. I know the server is safe and trying to figure out how to use the API. Any other help with this?

Did you manage to get this to work?  I am having a similar issue trying to use "Get Date - Web" to use an API from an internal server and the same error "The underlying connection was closed:  Could not establish trust relationship for the SSL/TLS secure channel".  I would be interested to hear if you managed to get this working.

Hi @BhaveshPatel ,

 

I am connecting Vmware vSphere Client from Power BI using web source and I get the same error.

 

I tried clear SSL state but still not working. Is there any way else I can try?

Re: SSL Certificate Issue - can I ignore it?

sorry but how do you ignore it?
I have two options : edit and retry, and the edit option has no ignore option 😞

How do you ignore it? It doesn't allow to ignore the SSL error.  I cleared the SSL State and didn't solve the issue
