While Using JIRA Cli to modify data in jira it gives SSL error

It throws error

javax.net.ssl.SSLHandshakeException: sun.security.validator.ValidatorException: PKIX path building failed: sun.security.provider.certpath.SunCertPathBuilderException: unable to find valid certification path to requested target

i am using 3.9 version and i am a new user of this product.

Hi Abyaka,

This error means that JIRA HTTPS certificate couldn't be found in your local JAVA cacerts. You can either import the certificate as in this doc, or edit JIRA CLI files as following:

Into the jira.sh or jira.bat you'll have a connection string like this:

java -jar `dirname $0`/lib/jira-cli-3.9.0.jar --server https://jira.example.com --user automation --password automation

You could include the parameter -Djavax.net.ssl.trustStore=/path_to_cert

I hope it helps.
