Citrix Application Delivery Management service

Poll SSL certificates from Citrix ADC instances

Citrix Application Delivery and Management automatically polls SSL certificates once every 24 hours by using NITRO calls and the Secure Copy (SCP) protocol. You can also manually poll the SSL certificates to discover newly added SSL certificates on the Citrix ADC instances. Polling all the Citrix ADC instances SSL certificates places a heavy load on the network.

Instead of polling all the Citrix ADC instances SSL certificates, you can manually poll only the SSL certificates of a selected instance or instances.

To poll SSL certificates on Citrix ADC instances:

  1. In Citrix Application Delivery and Management, navigate to Infrastructure > SSL Dashboard.

  2. On SSL Dashboard page, in the top right-hand corner, click Poll Now.

    Poll certificates

  3. The Poll Now page pops up, giving you the option to poll all Citrix ADC instances in the network or poll selected instances.

    • To poll the SLL certificates of all the Citrix ADC instances, select the All Instances tab and click Start Polling.

    • To poll specific instances, select the Select Instances tab, select the instances from the list, and click Poll Now.
