  1. I tried the plugin to have the Jira plugin connect to a self signed Jira instance and I still get this error, even after restarting Jenkins:

    javax.net.ssl.SSLHandshakeException: sun.security.validator.ValidatorException: PKIX path building failed: sun.security.provider.certpath.SunCertPathBuilderException: unable to find valid certification path to requested target

    We are using jdk1.6.0_41 and Jenkins 1.515.

    1. Same here. Debian Squeeze + Oracle JDK 7 + Jenkins 1.549 + this plugin + JIRA with no intermediate/root CA certificates, just the last-in-chain one. The jenkins config page throws the following exception when trying to configure JIRA login.
      javax.net.ssl.SSLHandshakeException: sun.security.validator.ValidatorException: PKIX path building failed: sun.security.provider.certpath.SunCertPathBuilderException: unable to find valid certification path to requested target

  2. Doesn't work with github.com in Jenkins 2.7.1 on Windows 7 64bit:
    stderr: fatal: unable to access 'https://github.com/hujirong/DevOps.git/': SSL certificate problem: self signed certificate in certificate chain

  3. Doesn't seem to work on Windows with the 2.92 release, either.  But I found a very simple workaround.  I simply ran a job that only ran a windows batch command.  The command to run is the git configure:  git config --global http.sslverify false.  Once it has run, the value is set for all jobs in that Jenkins instance, so you need to be aware this is a security hole.  

  4. For the Jenkins ver. 2.121.2, you may follow the below steps:

    • Manage Jenkins >> Configure Global Security >> Plugin Manager >> Tick the check-box for "Use browser for metadata download" option
