The bulk download with below link is not working in TLS 1.2 enabled servers. Can someone help me to understand whether OpenFDA bulk download supports in TLS 1.2 enabled servers? Or do I needs to use its API instead of bulk download.



  • It works now when we access the FDA through the TLS1.2 servers. Just out of curiosity, have there been any changes at the FDA level in the use of TLS1.2? Jul 19, 2023 at 7:17

Apologies for the late reply, but are you still encountering this issue? I've checked our configuration, which has TLS 1.2 & 1.3 enabled and see no errors.
