Heroku: UNABLE_TO_GET_ISSUER_CERT_LOCALLY: unable to get local issuer certificate

I am facing issue in creating an new heroku app on cli

C:\sami\foodOrder\foodOrder>heroku create
Creating app... !
 !    UNABLE_TO_GET_ISSUER_CERT_LOCALLY: unable to get local issuer certificate

This is even happening on a clone of existing app

  • Heroku local is not using my latest code. Why?
  • `git push heroku master` fails because it is using the wrong email address
  • Heroku.bat cannot run start
  • Heroku git repository
  • Errors trying to push to Heroku
  • Error in Heroku-apps: Invalid left-hand side assignment
  • Failure to run Toolbelt on Windows 7 — invalid argument 'heroku-cli.exe'
  • How to update an Heroku App created using github “Deploy to Heroku” button?

    As a temporary workaround you can disable SSL verification by setting an environment variable:


    Yesterday Heroku made the new toolbelt product mandatory by introducing various intentional but obscure errors when using the old libraries, and I ran into this issue after upgrading. I expect others will stumble upon this too, so I’m adding my solution.

    I had set the SSL_CERT_FILE environment variable to a specific certs file to fix this issue with local SSL certs in Ruby on Windows, and while that worked with the old Heroku library, the new one requires additional trusts (see path/to/Heroku/lib/cacert.pem).

    The solution for me was to remove the SSL_CERT_FILE environment variable and instead set it in my specific environments using my existing Figaro config file. After that, heroku ran without issue.

    Add the following to your .bowerrc file…
