Error: unable to verify the first certificate in nodejs azure queue storage createMessage

Bob141 1 Reputation point

I am trying out testing my Azure Queue Storage on Azurite emulator on MacOS in a local environment. I wrote a piece of code to send a message, which was to be viewed on Azure Storage Explorer. I am using the https connection string as stated in the Azurite documentation and have set up self-signed rootCA.pem certificate as written here in Azure Storage Explorer. However when I take my code in a file file.js and run node file.js. It gives me the following error message of "unable to verify the first certificate in nodejs azure queue storage add message". Does anyone know what have I done wrongly?


'use strict';  
const storage = require('azure-storage');  
const queueService = storage.createQueueService("DefaultEndpointsProtocol=https;AccountName=devstoreaccount1;AccountKey=Eby8vdM02xNOcqFlqUwJPLlmEtlCDXJ1OUzFT50uSRZ6IFsuFq2UVErCz4I6tq/K1SZFPTOtr/KBHBeksoGMGw==;BlobEndpoint=;QueueEndpoint=;");  
queueService.messageEncoder = new storage.QueueMessageEncoder.TextBase64QueueMessageEncoder();  
function testing() {  
  queueService.createMessage('emailv2', "Hello world", (error) => {  
    if (error) {  
      console.log('Error encountered when enqueueing welcome message', error);
