Set up notifications for SSL certificate expiry

As a security administrator, you can configure notifications when the certificates are about to expire and to include information about which Citrix ADC instances use those certificates. By enabling notifications, you can renew your SSL certificates on time.

For example, you can set an email notification to be sent an email distribution list 30 days before your certificate is due to expire.

To set up notifications from Citrix ADM:

  1. In Citrix ADM, navigate to Networks > SSL Dashboard.

  2. On the SSL Dashboard page, click Settings.

  3. On the Settings page, click the General.

  4. In the Notification Settings section, specify when to send the notification in terms of number of days, prior to the expiration date.

  5. Choose the type of notification you want to send. Select the notification type and the distribution list from the menu. The notification types are as follows:

    • Email – Specify a mail server and profile details. An email is triggered when your certificates are about to expire.

    • Slack - Specify a slack profile. A notification is sent when your certificates are about to expire.

    • PagerDuty - Specify a PagerDuty profile. Based on the notification settings configured in your PagerDuty portal, a notification is sent when your certificates are about to expire.

    • ServiceNow - A notification is sent to the default ServiceNow profile when your certificates are about to expire.

      Important

      Ensure Citrix Cloud ITSM Adapter is configured for ServiceNow and integrated with Citrix ADM service. For more information, see Integrate Citrix ADM Service with ServiceNow instance.
