The following is the general workflow needed to set up CertCentral managed automation:
For new automation deployments, all steps are mandatory. When adding systems to an existing deployment, you may only need to complete a subset of these steps.
The CertCentral Automate now! menu item is available to help guide you through the managed automation workflow.
The following is the general workflow needed to set up third-party ACME clients to work with CertCentral automation:
For third-party ACME clients, automation events must be initiated separately on each individual client system.
To use the CertCentral APIs for managed automation, you must first install and configure the automation clients (agents and sensors) and define one or more automation profiles to use. You can then call the automation APIs to initiate automation events directly from your custom web applications.
Follow the same initial steps as the managed automation workflow to set up the automation clients and create the automation profiles (steps 1-3). Then, instead of scheduling automation events from the CertCentral Automated IPs menu (as in step 4), initiate the automation events by invoking the corresponding API calls.
