Oh no, another newbie... New to POSTMAN and REST API... SAN Storage help... KEY_USAGE_BIT_INCORRECT

Hello everyone…
As stated, I’m new to POSTMAN and REST API. I am a SAN Admin using HDS with a number of arrays.
I have the POSTMAN app on my laptop and had been having connectivity issues which were subsequently resolved by our networking team by opening up 23451 on the FW. Anyway, the problem at hand now, is that I am trying to obtain (for now, rudimentary), information from my arrays. The GET command that I am entering is this:
GET https://xx.xx.xx.xx:23451/ConfigurationManager/v1/objects/storages/, but the error output I am getting is this:
Error: write EPROTO 51814856:error:1000012e:SSL routines:OPENSSL_internal:KEY_USAGE_BIT_INCORRECT:…/…/third_party/boringssl/src/ssl/ssl_cert.cc:609:

If I can just get a little help, pointing me in the right direction, I would be most appreciative!


I know, It becomes unsecure but to solve this issue I think you need to change the HTTPS to HTTP, if you are using localhost.

and a video

I hope this helps you

Cheers :cake:

thanks, I will pass this on to our network admins
