Tried to perform REST GET through python requests with the following code and I got an error.

Code snip:

import requests

header = {'Authorization': 'Bearer...'}

url = az_base_url + az_subscription_id + '/resourcegroups/Default-Networking/resources?' + az_api_version r = requests.get(url, headers=header)

Error:

/usr/local/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/requests/packages/urllib3/util/ssl_.py:79:

InsecurePlatformWarning: A true SSLContext object is not available.

This prevents urllib3 from configuring SSL appropriately and may cause certain SSL connections to fail.

For more information, see https://urllib3.readthedocs.org/en/latest/security.html#insecureplatformwarning.

InsecurePlatformWarning

My python version is 2.7.3. I tried to install urllib3 and requests[security] as some other thread suggests, I still got the same error.

Wonder if anyone can provide some tips?

To get rid of this error you need to need to install the security package below is the command to install security package:-

$ pip install requests[security]

If you're using Linux(Ubuntu) then you can use the following command to install the security package:

$ apt-get install libffi-dev libssl-dev
