SSL certificate validation for API pollers

This option is enabled, by default, when you add an API poller. Whenever an API request is sent, SAM checks for a valid SSL certificate on the external node specified by the URL.

If the SSL certificate validation option is disabled for an API poller, the following default response appears after each API request: "The underlying connection was closed: Could not establish trust relationship for the SSL/TLS secure channel.

The API Poller feature does not support monitoring of HP ProLiant servers via the HP Integrated Lights-Out (iLO) REST API due to a HP known issue, even if this workaround is applied.
