We have some scripts written up in groovy which use Apache HTTP Client to perform some automated page manipulation on our Confluence Cloud instance. These had been running OK but over the last couple of months we’ve been seeing failures with: javax.net.ssl.SSLPeerUnverifiedException: peer not authenticated.
There does not seem to be a pattern to the failures; usually waiting a few minutes will let it succeed nor do we have any issue connecting to the associated JIRA cloud instance either.
So I’m a bit confused as to whats going on. The OS and JDK have both been freshly updated and so should be fully up to date with any CA changes but that wouldn’t explain the intermittent nature.
Oracle JDK 8 update 121
