Disable SSL Validation

SaaS / Cloud Customers#

If you are using the API Fortress SaaS (cloud) platform you can use the downloader named "US East No SSL Check".

This downloader ignores invalid and not matching certificates.

Self Hosted / On-Premises Customers#

To disable the SSL validation in the downloader do the following steps:

NOTE: We will assume you're using a docker-compose based deployment, if you are not please reach out to support@apifortress.com.)

  1. First access the machine that runs the downloader service (likely the one that runs the rest of API Fortress as well)

  2. Then navigate to the downloader/ directory

  3. Stop the downloader by issuing:

    sudo docker-compose stop
  4. Next edit the docker-compose.yml file

  5. In the environment section, add the following entry:

    disable_ssl_validation: 'true'
  6. Save and exit the file

  7. Now restart the downloader by issuing:

    sudo docker-compose up -d

This downloader will now ignore invalid and not matching certificates.
