SSL certificate problem: Unable to get local issuer certificate
Platform Notice: Server and Data Center Only - This article only applies to Atlassian products on the server and data center platforms.
The following is seen on the command line when pushing or pulling:
SSL Certificate problem: unable to get local issuer
This error occurs when a self-signed certificate cannot be verified.
Tell git to not perform the validation of the certificate using the global option:
git config --global http.sslVerify false
Please be advised disabling SSL verification globally might be considered a security risk and should be implemented only temporarily
There are several ways this issue has been resolved previously. Below we suggest a possible resolution that should be run on the client side:
A. Ensure the root cert is added to git.exe's certificate store.
B. Tell Git where to find the CA bundle by running:
git config --system http.sslCAPath /absolute/path/to/git/certificates
sslCAinfo = /bin/curl-ca-bundle.crt
C. Reinstalling Git.
D. Ensuring that the complete CA is present, including the root cert.
