Configure SSL (G Dataflow)

Version:
Last Modified: December 18, 2017

Provides Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) authentication for web requests. Use SSL authentication with other HTTP nodes to send web requests to a server, web page, or web service using SSL.

private key file

Path to a private key file that is part of the client certificate and client authentication process.

datatype_icon

private key password

Password for the private key file. If the private key file is not encrypted, you do not have to specify a private key password.

datatype_icon

client handle

Unique value that identifies the web request.

You can use the same client handle to wire together multiple HTTP nodes to preserve authentication credentials, HTTP headers, and cookies.

Client handles are not required when making web requests without persistent data such as headers or credentials.

datatype_icon

CA certificate file

Path to a list of trusted certificate authority (CA) certificates. If you specify True for the verify server input, the client verifies the server's identity against this list of trusted certificates.

datatype_icon

client certificate file

Path to the client certificate file for servers that require client authentication. Some servers require this file to verify the identity of the client by using a trusted CA.

datatype_icon

error in

Error conditions that occur before this node runs.

The node responds to this input according to standard error behavior.

Standard Error Behavior

Many nodes provide an error in input and an error out output so that the node can respond to and communicate errors that occur while code is running. The value of error in specifies whether an error occurred before the node runs. Most nodes respond to values of error in in a standard, predictable way.

error in does not contain an error error in contains an error
If no error occurred before the node runs, the node begins execution normally.

If no error occurs while the node runs, it returns no error. If an error does occur while the node runs, it returns that error information as error out.

If an error occurred before the node runs, the node does not execute. Instead, it returns the error in value as error out.

Default: No error

datatype_icon

verify server

A Boolean value that checks the server's certificate against the list of trusted CA certificates specified by the CA certificate file input.

True Verifies the server's identity against the list of trusted CA certificates for optimal security.
False Does not verify the server's identity and does not provide optimal security. Specifying False allows the client to accept self-signed certificates signed by the certificate creator rather than a trusted CA.

Default: True

datatype_icon

client handle out

Unique value that identifies the web request. Use this value to refer to this web request in subsequent node calls.

You can use the same client handle to wire together multiple HTTP nodes to preserve authentication credentials, HTTP headers, and cookies.

Client handles are not required when making independent web requests without persistent data such as headers or credentials.

datatype_icon

error out

Error information.

The node produces this output according to standard error behavior.

Where This Node Can Run:

Desktop OS: Windows

FPGA: This product does not support FPGA devices

Web Server: Not supported in VIs that run in a web application
