Database Connection Attempt failed

I am trying to connect to a Postgresql database server using JIRA with Groovy and implementing it on the Script Runner. 

I have researched the error, and it has something to do with the certificates. I've encountered the same problem when  I was using Eclipse. However, I am now using Groovy and script runner. I have no idea how I'll be able to fix this. Any suggestions?

Caused by: sun.security.validator.ValidatorException: PKIX path building failed: sun.security.provider.certpath.SunCertPathBuilderException: unable to find valid certification path to requested target

That probably means you haven't imported all the certificates you need into the Java keystore for JIRA - Although this is about application links, you probably need to do the same to fix the error you have
