The Microsoft Azure Certificate Event Monitor watches certificates in your Azure key vaults and sends alerts when they've expired or are about to expire. You can customize the settings to send alerts about new certificates, expired certificates, or certificates that are due to expire soon. You can also configure the event text to include information about past certificates for recordkeeping purposes.
Check the first box if you want to be alerted if the event monitor cannot contact Microsoft Azure. You can choose what level of alert you'll receive in this event by selecting it from the dropdown menu.
The option below that one will warn you if the event monitor detects one or more certificates that are new since the last time the event monitor ran.
The next option will warn you if any expired certificates are detected. Select the level of alert you want to receive in this event.
The following option lets you specify the number of days before certificate expiry that you'd like to receive each level of alert. The below example shows alerts that will escalate as the expiry date grows nearer, beginning at 31 days with an "Info" level of alert. Underneath the main option is a box that, when checked, will exclude certificates from this alert option that have already expired.
The next option works similarly but will alert about certificates that take longer to expire than expected. Use this option to investigate certificates that should expire at a certain time but do not.
The next three options control the information you choose to include in the event text generated each time the event monitor runs. Check the first box to include a list of all certificates in each notification generated by the event monitor.
Next, choose whether or not you want to include a list of all expired certificates in the event text.
Finally, you can choose to include a list of any certificates that are due to expire within the 30 days following each event monitor run.
The following two options let you include only the key vaults and certificates you enter in the respective text boxes. In the first text box, enter the names of the key vaults that you want the event monitor to check. If you fill in this field, all other key vaults will be skipped over. Add each key vault on a new line, as below.
The next option lets you ignore certain certificates and monitor all others. As with the option before this one, enter each unique string on a new line.
