Unable to connect to Octoprint because of a self signed SSL certificate

Hi all,

I’m pretty new to HassOS but I’ve been 3D printing with Octoprint for a while now.

I’m currently trying to add the usual cards to Lovelace using the octoprint module and I’m getting a connection error because my Octoprint setup uses a Self Signed Certificate that is forwarded to the web using a custom port of 5010 but HASS doesn’t like that I’m using a self signed cert and therefore won’t connect to my Octopi.

Copy of the logs:

Failed to connect to Octoprint server. Error: HTTPSConnectionPool(host='https', port=443): Max retries exceeded with url: //*MY_DOMAIN*.com:5010/api/printer (Caused by NewConnectionError('<urllib3.connection.HTTPSConnection object at 0x7fa1eaeb20>: Failed to establish a new connection: [Errno -3] Try again'))

Copy of relevant configuration.yaml section:

I would really appreciate any help!

That won’t work, as the “octopus” integration doesn’t allow to disable SSL verification.
You have 2 choices:

Thank you for the suggestion!

I’m not going to lie, the tricky option looks very confusing for a beginner like me so I’ll probably give the easy option a go

Thank you!
