API curl --cert

New Contributor

Hi guys, how could use a command curl add the --cert, i have the below error:


curl: (58) NSS: client certificate not found (nickname not specified)


Super Mentor


Try using the absolute path to the certificate pem file rather than just the filename.
If you are executing your curl command from within the directory where your pem file resides, try using "./<pem filename>".

Otherwise curl may try looking up yoru pem filename as if it were an alias/nickname it expects find in some NSS database.
