Configure Rule-based Alerts in Certificate View

You can set up rules to alert you, keep you aware of certificate or TLS-related vulnerabilities, and allow quick remediation. Instead of actively monitoring the system, these alerts ask for attention and intervention only when necessary and make you aware of changes or significant findings as soon as the rules are met.

For example, you can set up alerts for

- Certificates expiring in 30/60/90 days

- Self-signed certificates

- Certificates from unapproved CAs

- Certificate instances with low grades

- Certificates with weak key lengths or hashing algorithms

How to set up rule-based alerts?

Just tell us what you consider a significant finding or event and the mechanism in which you want to be alerted.

Step 1 - Define actions that the rule must take in response to the alert

Step 2 - Set up your rules in the Rule Manager tab

Alerting Permissions

Assign permissions related to alerting your user. Depending on the permissions assigned, the user can perform actions like creating, editing, or deleting rules and actions.  

Using the Administration module, the Manager user for that subscription can assign these permissions to other users.
