  2. Configure a custom email notification for that tag name:

    1. In the Trust Lifecycle Manager main menu, select Settings > Notifications.

    2. Hover the default notification called Uploaded certificate expiring and select the copy icon to clone it.

    3. Fill out the form to configure the custom notification:

Imported certificates that do not contain an email address in either the SAN (RFC822Name) or SubjectDN (Email) field cannot be sent any email notifications. A warning will be displayed in the audit logs for those certificates.
