FME Flow 2024.0 - PythonCaller - Could not open the address locator

  • 2 April 2024

We recently upgraded to FME Flow 2024.0 and have been struggling with an issue where access to a number of our ArcGIS Server services is being denied at the Flow level.  We were first able to circumvent this by using on-network calls using HTTP however a recent job where we use a PythonCaller to geocode addresses is failing when we attempt to hit our Address Point Locator.  Job works as expected in Form, and we have ArcGIS Server working on the FME hosts, in addition to the ArcGIS Server host that has our working services. 

Has anyone else experienced this so we might know where to look?  Sounds like HTTPS/SSL but I am not sure where to begin to work with our Network Engineers.  

Thank you,
