Is it possible to get a notification when a certificate expires?


I am trying to attach multiple SSL certificates by using Dynamic SSL Certificate Storage in HAProxy and this query came to my mind.

While working with multiple certificates, its always required to keep an eye on the expiry date of all certificates, and they need to be updated accordingly ASAP for seamless performance. I was just checking, is there any feature (or is it possible) to get a notification, or trigger an event / command when one certificate expires?


No, there is not.

This should really be monitored externally, for example with check_ssl_cert

I seriously recommend to use the client with ZeroSSL (for the notifications) or Let’s Encrypt integration and profit from its the DNS API integration to automate the certs renewal.
Not having to worry about a cert expiration is a blast.
