Hi @arun.mani,

What product or service are you using? Can you please provide a link to this OpenPermID library that you are using.

In general, when Python requests module has SSL error, it is either because:

1. The Python instance and requests module is old and does not have latest certificate store.

2. You app is behind a firewall which is re-signing the SSL requests.

Hello Gurpreet!

Thanks for the response, I am currently using OpenPermID python library:Introduction to the Open PermID Python library | Devportal (lseg.com)

I am running this from my company's network. Just wanted to know what the certificate's are required to run this in my employer's environment. It gives accurate results when I run the command on my personal system.

@arun.mani

The error indicates the connection was blocked by your company's network policies.

You need to contact your company's network team to unblock the connection.
