Connect to Jira REST API from SAP

Hello -

I am trying to connect to a Jira REST API from SAP over HTTPS. In SAP I have created a connection in SM59 with the host/prefix & port. When I set SSL to inactive I get a 400 Bad Request - The plain HTTP request was sent to HTTPS port message. When I set to SSL active I get an ICM_HTTP_SSL_ERROR which I assume indicates that there is an issue with the SSL certificate, yet we do not need an SSL certificate to connect (and indeed Jira does not issue them out). Thus I am not sure what to do in order to make SAP connect to Jira?

Has anyone faced this issue that can offer any advice?

Figured this one out - went to the URL myself, downloaded the certificate, and then imported this into the system.

Hi Tom,

We have similar sort of requirement to connect to JIRA REST API from SAP and I am also getting same error message ICM_HTTP_SSL_ERROR..

Can you please guide me how to upload the certificate to the sap system to resolve this problem.

Thanks a lot for your help in advance.
