    You'll need to ensure that your client is using SNI.

    But is that any thing changed from getty API, it suddenly stopped working from yesterday?

    Can you please provide if any changes in API calls. we are using below API url:

    Yes, there was a change in our infrastructure recently that requires clients to support SNI (Server Name Indication). Most languages and frameworks have supported SNI since about 2011. If you are using an old version of Java (Java 6?) or PHP (older than 5.3), etc., you'll need to update to a newer version.

    Same code and credentials are working from my dev site ( and not working form Live site.

    Do you have any idea, both the sites are using same OS and java versions.We are using ColdFusion 10 version.

    Hello gothamcity_connect,

    (I am assuming you are referring to the same "hostname in certificate didn't match" message as previously mentioned.)

    Unfortunately we don't have guidance on specific client technology. As Mark mentioned, we have seen the issue with SNI come up with old versions of Java (specifically 6 or older). It sounds like Java plays some part here in your ColdFusion stack.

    I would recommend research into ensuring that SNI is supported and enabled at the point in your stack at which the actual HTTP call is made to the Getty API.
