SSL warning message

In MySQL server 5.6.26+ and 5.7.6+, SSL is enabled by default on the server side. However, AI Suite connects to MySQL without SSL.

The following warning message appears in the log:

Establishing SSL connection without server's identity verification is not recommended. According to MySQL 5.5.45+, 5.6.26+ and 5.7.6+ requirements SSL connection must be established by default if explicit option isn't set. For compliance with existing applications not using SSL the verifyServerCertificate property is set to 'false'. You need either to explicitly disable SSL by setting useSSL=false, or set useSSL=true and provide truststore for server certificate verification.

To prevent this warning, you must add the parameter ?useSSL=false at the end of each database URL in the following files:

  • context.xml in AIS/Tools/apache-tomcat/contexts/.
  • in [Installation_Path]/InterPlay/extra/Tools/configuration/
  • in [Installation_Path]/AIS/Repository/configuration/
