Managing Sterling Connect:Direct Secure Plus certificate expiry

You can set up IBM® Sterling Control Center to notify you when your Sterling Connect:Direct® Secure Plus trusted or key certificates are going to expire.

You accomplish this task by defining these variables:

  • The number of days before expiry that IBM Sterling Control Center begins generating events. Use the “Start certificate expiry notification” parameter in System Settings (the global setting for the system) or individual server settings.
  • Rules to notify you when certificate expiry warning events are generated. IBM Sterling Control Center ships with a predefined Certificate Expiry Warning rule to assist you in setting up notification for these events.
