If SSL certificate is not properly installed in your system, you may not be able to connect to the data source. 

You can identify this error by looking for "http_exception:[12175]WinHttpSendRequest: 12175: A security error occurred" in your biconnector.log file.


As a work around for this issue, proceed with the below steps.


  1. Open ODBC Administrator tool.

  2. Click "Configure" button of the DSN created for BI Connector. This will display BI Connector UI.


  3. Press Alt+V to open the "BI Connector : Advanced Settings" window.

  4. Enable the "Ignore invalid certificate error when connecting with BI server" checkbox.


  5. Click OK.


This will suppress the error due to http exception and connect to the data source.


NOTE: This is a temporary workaround. For permanent solution, please contact your IT admin to install valid SSL certificate in your system.
