When I access the REST API via http://<<server>>:81/SearchSvc/CVWebService.svc/ it is working with all API commands, now I started to use REST API reports, like:  http://<<server>>:81//webconsole/api/crreportsplusengine/datasets/ now I get a SSL error ssl.SSLError: [SSL: WRONG_VERSION_NUMBER] wrong version number (_ssl.c:1129)

I send my requests via python 3.9 with ”requests.get(service, headers=headers)”

commvault version 11.20.55

any idea what is going wrong?


regards Jürgen

Can you try to access the Rest API report using port 80. As the webconsole is access via tomcat and not the webserver,  please try to access via either of these url  http://<<server>>:80//webconsole/api/crreportsplusengine/datasets/  or  https://<<server>>//webconsole/api/crreportsplusengine/datasets/

Thanks for your response.

I tried with port 80, now I get this error:

@Juergen the api should be 

api/cr/reportsplusengine and not api/crreportsplusengine
