Managed automation workflow

To automate certificate management and installation, follow these steps:

  1. Install and activate the automation clients (ACME agents and sensors).

  2. Configure the automation clients.

  3. Create one or more automation profiles.

    Automation profiles facilitate client automation requests and maintain uniformity across your environment.

  4. Schedule automation events.

    Use the Automated IPs menu item to schedule certificate lifecycle automation events.

    Also from the Automated IPs view, check on:

    • Certificates expiring in 90 days or less so you can schedule them for automation.
    • The status of scheduled automation requests.
    • Automation and agent errors.

    Return to this view, as needed, to schedule, configure, and troubleshoot.
