Steps to Reproduce

  1. Configure a Connect REST rule.
  2. Try Test Connectivity from the Connect rule or Invoke the Connector from Data Page. TLS 1.2 used.

Root Cause

A defect or configuration issue in the operating environment:

The endpoint was enabled only for TLS 1.2 and Pega application server was using JAVA 1.6 which doesn't support TLS 1.2.


Upgrade to Java 1.7 or above.
