HTTP_POST and OpenSSL

Morning all.

I'm using the function module "HTTP_POST" to try to post to a particular page. However, there's a problem. I need to post to an HTTPS URI, and when I try to run it, I get the message "OpenSSL not available". I can't find what that message actually means anywhere - does anyone know? This is a proper blocker for me so if anyone can help it would be much appreciated...

    Hi,

    OpenSSL, is an open projet to the implementation of the SSL concept. The URL you try to connect is waiting to start a SSL communication.

    Maybe try to find and HTTPS* function. Or check OSS Note about SSL connection.

    Struggling a bit here. If I were to use CL_HTTP_CLIENT, how might I get it to communicate using SSL or TLS so I can call an HTTPS URI?

    It turns out that this is due to SAP having out-of-date certificates for certificate path verification - the new Verisign one is missing. Importing it solves the problem.
