St2client issue

I am new to stackstorm. I have some trouble running st2client remotely. I have no issue accessing the api which is https://{REMOTE}/api. Also i have read some of the old post with similar issue but i still could not get around it.

On my config in .st2/conf

base_url =
api_version = None

Path to the CA cert bundle used to validate the SSL certificates

#cacert =

debug = True

True to cache the retrieved auth token during authentication in ~/.st2/token

and use the cached token in the subsequent API requests

cache_token = True

Timezone used for timestamps displayed in the CLI. If not provided it defaults

to UTC

timezone = Europe/Ljubljana


Credentials used to authenticate against the auth API and retrieve the auth


username = “st2admin”
password = “changeme”

url =

or for a remote instance

url =

url =

or for a remote instance

#url =

url =

or for a remote instance

url =

When i run it i get

(st2client) root@h1:~/st2client/.st2# st2 --config-file=./config action list
2021-05-17 23:15:33,289 WARNING - Auth API server is not available, skipping authentication.
ERROR: HTTPSConnectionPool(host=‘’, port=443): Max retries exceeded with url: /api/actions?include_attributes=ref%2Cpack%2Cdescription (Caused by SSLError(SSLError(“bad handshake: Error([(‘SSL routines’, ‘tls_process_server_certificate’, ‘certificate verify failed’)],)”,),))

Would very much appreciate if anyone can give me some pointer.

This got caught in our spam filter. I approved the post, but it looks like a duplicate of your other question:

yes, i made another one on the same topic, so this can be closed.
