Adding Assets and Sites to Your Account 

Start monitoring assets on your hosts by adding external (public) and internal sites to Certificate View.

You can add external sites if you have a Certificate View Free subscription. To add and monitor internal sites, upgrade to a Certificate View Full subscription.

Add External Sites

You can add external sites in two ways: individually or in bulk.

Note: You can also add external sites from your VM/VMDR account refer to Adding Assets from VM/VMDR Account. For more information refer to VM/VMDR online help Manage IPs Across Apps section.

Add Sites

Go to Assets > External Sites and click Add Sites.

Provide either FQDNs or IP addresses of public sites you want to scan for certificates. The scan is initiated for a list of standard ports to collect certificate information on the sites provided by you.

Select the Add to Weekly Scan option to include or exclude the site from the weekly scheduled scan.

Click Save to scan the sites at a later time, or click Save and Start Scan to scan the site immediately.

Add an external site

Once the site is added, it is listed in the External Sites tab. Here you can view details about the sites like when it was last scanned, the status of the scan (Finished, Canceled, Waiting, Queued, Running, or Error). The external sites on the External Sites tab display based on the last scan date. You can also sort the information as per the last scan date.
