How to solve HTTP - Request error

I have a issue with solving HTTP-request error

using following request in the browser returns a usable data string

But in node red there are alarms I can't solve
For example with this version I got ECONNRESET error

debug window:

It would be helpful if you names all your nodes. That way the name will showup in the dwbug log instead of an ID

The unexpected token message probable comes from the json node telling you the data sent to it is bad. Add a debug node (set to display the complete msg object) to the the output of the http to show what it is getting.


I added names and a debug node. Looks like the issue is with unable to verify the first certificate?

Why it works in the browser??
Here the output from the browser

here the http request

Info if set to display complete msg object


Looking at the url from the screenshot you shared it seems that you are using a self signed certificate ?

The following from the http request nodes Help tab :


so set in your Http request node the url to be https:// ... (in the first screenshot you had it http)
and also the above option msg.rejectUnauthorized = false (set from the Inject node)

yeah, I tryed both as i don't understand the issue

the above option msg.rejectUnauthorized = false (set from the Inject node)

Is that using msg.payload? and which type?

I tried a few combination but no success


I saw that you were triggering the http request from an Inject node so have you tried this


I tried like in the pic but it say invalid property expression

that must be for the msg.topic field that you have not set correctly and its highlighted in red.
just press X to remove the topic row (or fill it with a valid value if you need to)

i got it to work (see picture) but same result in the http request


nope its not correct
node-red nodes expect their msg. properties and values to be very specific

does that look like the image i shared above ? :face_with_monocle:
