Obtain SSL certificates from bitbucket server so as to connect from Java




We are using Bitbucket server in our environment. 


The server is secured by HTTPS and we can access it from browser using HTTPS.

We are working on a client in java to connect to Bitbucket server. But, the connection fails due to SSL handshake error.


I understand that we need to get the certificates or pem file  ( not sure which one? ) from bitbucket server and add it to the truststore or key store of JVM using keytool.


But, not sure how to obtain the certificates and also the process to add bitbucket certificates to trust store so that I can connect to bitbucket via HTTPS/SSL.


IF someone has used this previously, can you please provide details on that.
