How to Connect to https Jira Server with Jira Python?

EDIT: Turns out it was a problem with the SSL / proxy / something & a bug in requests not properly respecting the validate=false flag... I ended up executing the code directly on the server to get around the problem


I've tried for longer than I care to admit yet I still can't get a connection up. What I've tried:

1. basic out with username & password

[SSL: CERTIFICATE_VERIFY_FAILED] certificate verify failed (_ssl.c:600) while doing GET

2. Tried with "verify=False"

EOF occurred in violation of protocol (_ssl.c:600) while doing GET

+ several "unscientific" solutions I don't care to admit. I'm on a Windows 7 machine using python 3.4

How can I connect to my server?

I'd really appreciate any suggestions you have.

This works for me:

from jira import JIRA
jira = JIRA('', basic_auth=('username', 'password'))
