Datadriven service fails in SSL enabled environment

CA Application Test CA Continuous Application Insight (PathFinder) Service Virtualization


A known-good virtual service was converted to data-driven. When used we receive the message PKIX path building failed: unable to find valid certification path to requested target

in both the vse log and inspection view 


Any supported DevTest releases.

SSL enabled for registry web connections (API on port 1505 by default)


When executing a data-driven virtual service, the VSE will contact the Registry's API to obtain data. 

This API is accessed over SSL, and the VSE does not trust the certificate presented. 


The truststore used for this connection is the cacerts located in DEVTEST_HOME/jre/lib/security.

In order to trust this connection, the relevant root and intermediate certificates should be added to this file.

Should a self-signed certificate be used, this should be added in lieu of the above.
