Invalid security certificate

Hello Openbots experts, When trying to replicate the RPA challenge exercise with the 1.5.2 version of the Openbot studio, once the agent opens the web page I got a message from Chrome saying that this site is not secure, so the browser asks if that you really wanted to enter in this site. For this, I have to clic in in the link "Access to rpachallenge (not safe)". To overcome this incovenience I have tried to use the web element recorder to capture this step in the whole list of automations, however the web recorder got the following mesagge once the url of rpachallenge is entered: uses an invalid security certificate. The certificate is only valid for the following names: *, *, *, *, *

Could you provide guidance to treat with not secure sites.

Thank you in advance.

David S.

Well this is still a problem, while the code doesnt get interrupted on attempting to access domains with expired certificates, the webrecorder does not allow you to proceed any further, this applies for all cases of certificate errors (Expired certificates, mismatched domains etc)

would it be possible to remove the certificate check prior to the recorder initialize? can we have it as a setting so that we can control which ones we would wish to allow? Today, if there is a security error, the only way to proceed ahead is to manually identify the components and plug in.

GEtting this check out would help immensely.

I could solve this issue since it was generated as result of a typo. Instead of "" the activity had the URL "". Thanks!

Hi Natali, I have realized that instead of being using my script contained the URL This typo was proving the error message. Now it works fine. Thank you!

Hello David,

what is the URL you are using as input for the Create Browser/Chrome command?
