Connections to HTTPS endpoints within Slate, including those utilized for web services, require support for Server Name Indication (SNI). SNI has had widespread support for a long time—Internet Explorer introduced support in 2006—and is supported by all modern browsers and client libraries. Some organizations may be using severely-outdated SSL/HTTPS libraries, however, that do not provide support for SNI. This often appears as error messages indicating a mismatch in the certificate name (a name like cluster.technolutions.net is returned instead of the organization's domain). If an organization is unable to upgrade their client library to a version that supports SNI, there is an available workaround.
For a web service endpoint such as the following:
Change the URL that you call to the following:
When making this URL substitution, please note the following:
- apply.university.edu should be substituted for your organization's Slate domain.
- cluster.technolutions.net should be substituted for your organization's region-specific cluster:
- United States: cluster.technolutions.net
- Canada: cluster.ca-central-1.technolutions.net
- European Union: cluster.eu-west-1.technolutions.net
