TigerGraph Python Connection Issue


I am having issue with connecting to GSQL using pyTigerGraph.

Hello GSQL

FileNotFoundError: [Errno 2] No such file or directory: ‘/tmp/my-cert.txt’

@aalbaghd Are you using a windows machine running pyTigerGraph?

Yes, i am using a Windows machine.

Hi @aalbaghd - unfortunately the gsql function of pyTigerGraph requires a SSL certificate. To remedy this, you have to get a SSL certificate of your database, save that in a file, and then add the path to your connection details, so your TigerGraphConnection will look something like:

import pyTigerGraph as tg

conn = tg.TigerGraphConnection(host="YOUR_HOST", 

Hope this helps!

@aalbaghd Adding on to this thread.

Obtain SSL certificate

Run the following command, replacing <domain> with the domain of your Cloud solution and replace <path_to_certificate> with the local path to place the certificate file.

Find the domain of a Cloud solution by clicking on it in the solution view under “My Solutions.”

You need to install openssl on your client machine to run this command.

echo | openssl s_client  -connect <domain>:443 |  sed -ne '/-BEGIN CERTIFICATE-/,/-END CERTIFICATE-/p' > <path_to_certificate>

I have placed the certificate in my local, but still it complains [Errno 2] No such file or directory: ‘/tmp/my-cert.txt’. I don’t have /tmp folder.

conn = tg.TigerGraphConnection(host=“https://”, username=“id”, password=“pwd”, certPath=“I:\ds\my-cert.txt”)

@Parker_Erickson @Jon_Herke Can you please help. Still facing the issue /tmp/my-cert.txt

@abhishek Here is another thread on Connecting to TigerGraph with Python (pyTigerGraph). There is also a link to a sample notebook that you can use to test your connection. Let me know if that helps. I trying to create connection but having an issue - #6 by Jon_Herke
