array of string
additionalCAIssuers Optional

A list of URLs being authorized by the user to retrieve additional CA certificates from, if necessary, to complete the certificate chain to its trust anchor.

Upon retrieving the certificate chain presented during the handshake, if signing CA certificates were not included, but a location is specified for the 'caIssuers' access method of the 'Authority Info Access' extension (as described in RFC 5280 Section of those certificates and that location is one of these supplied URLs, then additional certificates will be retrieved from those URLs in accordance with the protocol laid out in the RFC.

Any failure to retrieve this certificate will NOT fail the test connection request, nor will the error associated with this failure be returned.

In the unlikely event that the CA Issuers URL specifies `https` instead of `http`, the original certificate, that included that URL, will be temporarily used to trust the server during ssl handshake

When this field is not set, the default value null indicates no hostname verification will be performed.
