Problems trying to do a training using the VM image - wrong version, broken links

I am trying to run dataiku locally on my Windows 10 laptop so I can complete some of the training exercises required for my job, but when I download the VM image it downloads version 9.0.1, while the trainings all say they require 11.0 or higher.

By editing the path to the VM I found that there is a VM for version 11, but after installing it when I take the first step in the "Data Science Quick Start" tutorial:

We’ll create our project from an existing Dataiku tutorial project.

  • From the Dataiku homepage, click on +New Project.
  • Choose DSS Tutorials > Quick Start > Data Scientist Quick Start (Tutorial).

I get:

Could not download tutorials

Not all tutorials are available here.
You can download all sample projects and tutorials from our Learn website

Details: Error while trying to GET url, caused by: SSLHandshakeException: PKIX path building failed: sun.security.provider.certpath.SunCertPathBuilderException: unable to find valid certification path to requested target, caused by: ValidatorException: PKIX path building failed: sun.security.provider.certpath.SunCertPathBuilderException: unable to find valid certification path to requested target, caused by: SunCertPathBuilderException: unable to find valid certification path to requested target.

and the link to "our Learn website" given above gives a 404 error.


Altogether, this is a pretty poor experience for anyone trying out dataiku for the first time and I imagine would put off lots of prospective customers.   I suggest the company spends some time and effort to ensure that the training courses are doable as advertised.

Hi @DaveK,

Thanks for reporting this.

I was unable to replicate the SSLHandshakeException. The only reason this could he happening is because on your network some security appliance is performing a man-in-the-middle SSL inspection and re-writing the SSL cert for downloads.dataiku.com. 

You can confirm this by doing curl -vvv https://downloads.dataiku.com/public/dss-samples/QS_DATASCI/dss-11/QS_DATASCI.zip -O  from the CLI of the DSS instance 

To work around this, you can either update DSS VM the java Truststore on DSS VM to include the Root CA issued by your organization.  

Or simply download the project directly from your browser and then upload it to DSS:

Thanks for the prompt reply.   I agree that the SSL issue may well be caused by my company VPN.  

I managed to download and install the zip file for the tutorial as you suggested.
