Self signed SSL certificate error on self hosted Git/ GitLab

I have a hosted Git repo on my company intranet. I can clone, pull, push, etc successfully with command line Git by disabling sslverify. I know this is not ideal but I have no control over our certificate or IT infrastructure so it is what it is.

I paid for GitLab EE, setup the omnibus package and I’m trying to clone the repo via https. However I get an error that it cannot verify the SSL certificate. This is not entirely unexpected but I cannot figure out how to bypass the ssl verification with GitLab EE. In the http settings I set self verified to true and pointed it to my .pem in /etc/gitlab/ssl but I get the same error.

Can I just set sslverify to false like I did command line git?
