Issue/Introduction

With the deprecation of TLS 1.0 and 1.1, users of the Excel add-in may experience the following error:

Error connecting to CA Agile Central:
The request was aborted: Could not create SSL/TLS secure channel.

or 

Error connecting to CA Agile Central: 
The underlying connection was closed: An unexpected error occurred on a send

This is due to the WinHTTP protocol that Excel uses to communicate with our infrastructure to perform the query operations configured within the add-in.  

Environment

WinHTTP does not use strong security in its default configuration. 

Resolution

The solution is to upgrade to version 2.4.4.
