Great question on accessing a web service as a data source over SSL today. BIP without any configuration does not like em. Oracle of knowledge Shinji of the development team put together a couple of links and I wanted to get them out on to the intertubes and share them.
My customer is creating BIP reports that use a web service/wsdl data source. It all works fine without SSL. They are a financial services company and internally they are required to use ssl when retrieving data from the web service. Trying to config to the WSDL to use SSL. Having an issue returning data from the source due to the ssl encryption. Errors from BIP indicate the certificate is missing, but we're not sure where it is supposed to be located.
