SSL certificate verification for API pollers

This option appears in the API Poller settings dialog box that you can access by clicking Configure in the top-right corner of the page when adding or editing an API poller.

By default, SAM checks SSL certificates on servers that host REST APIs, but you can disable this setting, if necessary.

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.
