Automation getting started

This is the open beta period for CertCentral agent automation and sensor-based agentless automation. To report errors, contact our Support team.

Before you get started with CertCentral automation, check these access and system requirements:

  • You’ll need to install and configure CertCentral sensors and agents wherever your SSL/TLS certificates are installed, so as a server admin or IT security specialist, you should be comfortable with managing servers, webhosts, load balancers, and similar devices.
  • Admin or root access is required to the device that hosts the certificate you want to automate.
  • CertCentral automation is supported on:
