RROR MESSAGES Caught unhandled exception: peer not authenticated

Steps to Reproduce

Test 1
Install the service endpoint certificates at PEGA application server truststore
Use REST integration wizard to consume the endpoint
Execute the Datapage to run the REST connector

Put the certificates at the REST connector rule level and Run the datapage again
This time the connectivity works

Root Cause

A defect in Pegasystems’ rule pyInvokeRESTConnector. The service endpoint is configured to support TLSv1.2. The Tomcat application server is using JAVA 1.7.x which does support TLSv1.2 but the default version is TLSv1.1. The pyInvokeRESTConnector activity was performing handshake using TLSv1.1 and failing.


Apply HFix-29038 and recycle the server.
