Accessing ThoughtSpot via SSL/HTTPS.

In order to connect to ThoughtSpot via SSL you need to import the SSL certificate from ThoughtSpot server onto the machine where MIMB is run.
The procedure below provides the necessary steps.
1. Export the SSL certificate from ThoughtSpot server machine.
2. On the MIMB machine, using the java keytool, create a private keystore by importing the certificate exported above:
keytool -importcert -file thoughtspot.cer -alias ThoughtSpot -keystore "${MODEL_BRIDGE_HOME}\jre\lib\security\thoughtspot" -storepass thoughtspot
When you are asked if you want to trust this certificate, confirm with 'yes'.
The new keystore will be created under "${MODEL_BRIDGE_HOME}\jre\lib\security" and named thoughtspot.
You can import multiple certificates into that same keystore (e.g. from multiple servers), and even from different versions of ThoughtSpot.
Just give each new certificate a unique alias within that keystore.
4. Now you should be able to run MIMB and connect to ThoughtSpot via SSL.
