Webservice client program returning HTTP status code 8

I have autogenerated Webservice client program using how to article in Micro focus documentation link Programming > COBOL Programming > Interface Mapping Toolkit (IMTK) > How toGenerate Clients > To generate a RESTful COBOL console client from JSON

It is working fine for HTTP based webservices. However, same approach does not work for HTTPS based webservice. Its throwing HTTP status code 8 (Communication error) 

Error: HTTP Status Code 00008
Error: Communications component error

Our Micro focus environment does not have HTTPS listener available which could be the reason for above error.

I went through the Micro focus documentation and found below article which could explain the missing Communications component error message

Did anyone faced similar issue? What was done to fix it?

    Is your web service running under Enterprise Server or is it a 3rd party service running under some other web server?

    If you are using https then you will need to configure the client program for SSL as explained in the documentation link that you provided so that the web server can authenticate the user.
