How to handle insecure SSL certificate sites with Prometheus for Jira, Confluence, Bitbucket and Bam

Hello!

In this article I will tell you how to handle insecure SSL certificate sites with Prometheus for Jira, Prometheus for Confluence , Prometheus for Bitbucket and Prometheus for Bamboo apps.

Suppose, you connect to a Jira, Confluence, Bitbucket or Bamboo instance with an insecure ssl certificate and you have the following config file:

global:
scrape_interval: 15s # Set the scrape interval to every 15 seconds. Default is every 1 minute.
evaluation_interval: 15s # Evaluate rules every 15 seconds. The default is every 1 minute.
# scrape_timeout is set to the global default (10s).



# A scrape configuration containing exactly one endpoint to scrape:
scrape_configs:
- job_name: 'jira'
scheme: https #change to http if don't you have https
metrics_path: '/plugins/servlet/prometheus/metrics'
static_configs:
- targets: ['yourinstance.com']

In this case if you run Prometheus and choose the System → Targets menu you will see the following message:

As you can see the error is:

x509: certificate has expired or is not yet valid

We need to tell Prometheus not to check the ssl certificate and we can do it with the following  parameters:

tls_config:
insecure_skip_verify: true

And your final config file would look like this:

# my global config
global:
scrape_interval: 15s # Set the scrape interval to every 15 seconds. Default is every 1 minute.
evaluation_interval: 15s # Evaluate rules every 15 seconds. The default is every 1 minute.
# scrape_timeout is set to the global default (10s).



# A scrape configuration containing exactly one endpoint to scrape:
scrape_configs:
- job_name: 'bitbucket'
scheme: https #change to http if don't you have https
metrics_path: '/plugins/servlet/prometheus/metrics'
static_configs:
- targets: ['yourinstance.com']
tls_config:
insecure_skip_verify: true

Now your endpoint will up and ready.
