HTTPS Certificate Validation

Component: ServiceInsight

ServiceControl can be configured to run over a secured connection, but if a self-signed certificate is used for this purpose, ServiceInsight still would not connect to that instance. While using a self-sign certificate is generally not recommended, ServiceInsight provides an override configuration entry to allow connecting to instances secured with such certificates.

ServiceInsight refuses to connect

Open ServiceInsight.exe.config from the installation directory and change the value for the following entry to True (the dafault value is False):

<appSettings>
    <add key="SkipCertificateValidation" value="False" />
</appSettings>
Since the application by default installs in the Program Files folder, admninistrative priviledge might be required to edit the config file above.
