Certificate expiration notifications

Account administrators receive a ​Control Center​ notification when an active, deployed (production or staging) CA set version has certificates approaching expiration. The initial notification is sent 120 days prior to the certificate's expiration date, then it's sent incrementally based on the number of days until it expires. For example, 90, 60, 30, 15, 10, 5, 1, and the day of expiration.

The notification includes; the number of certificates due to expire, the number of days left before they expire, the CA set they belong to, and the account, as shown in this example:

Certificates that expire in 15 days or less are critical. For these certificates, the account administrators also receive an email notification, as shown in this example:
