Automation workflow

To report errors related to CertCentral agent automation and sensor-based agentless automation, contact our Support team.

To automate certificate enrollment and installation on a device, these are the primary elements you need to create and configure:

  1. Create and set a default automation profile. Automation profiles help maintain SSL/TLS uniformity and avoid unnecessary sprawl across your environment.

  2. For dedicated web servers/webhosts, install and configure a CertCentral ACME automation agent.

    Note: To install the agent on more than one server at a time, see Install agent in silent mode.

  3. Schedule a certificate request in the Automated IPs view.

  4. Also in 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.
