how to disable channels in predifend Sensors?



I use the SSL certificate sensor. In this sensor are 6 channels: Common Name Check, Days to Expiration, Public Key Length, Revokedstatus, Root Authority trusted, Self-Signed

I'm only interested on channel "Days to Expiration"

Can I disable all other checks? Because I have warnings on the other channels: Warnung durch Lookupwert 'No' in Root Authority Trusted - Warnung durch Lookupwert 'Unable to check revocation status' in Revoked

I'm not interested to solve this... Just check the Days is what I need

Thanks Tobias

Hello Tobias

Channels cannot be disabled by default. But you can hide channels via multi-edit ("Hide from Tables", "Hide from Graphs"). You can also remove the lookup usage from those channels which trigger the lookup warning. This must be done after the sensor creation though.
