Warning with new certificate sensor

Dear all

During the last update, I had to switch all the certificate expired measuring sensors to the new sensor and it has been depreciated. I now have one sensor, for www.hear-the-world.com, which reports a warning with the message that the CRL cannot be found. Within this warning, I can see the certificate common name as sl152.web.hostpoint.ch. But when you open this webpage within a browser you can see that the common name of the certificate is www.hear-the-world.com.

Is it possible for you to reproduce this topic? When you add this sensor into your environment, do you see the same warning or would it work?

Thank you Markus Albisser

Dear all

I guess I solved the issue by removing the https: statement in front of the SNI.

There came another question up: I have self-signed certificates which should be monitored for the expiration date. These certs have no CRL, so therefore the sensor result remains on Warning. How can I disable the check for the CRL here?

Thank you Markus Albisser

Dear Markus,

Good to hear you figured that out with the SNI setting. Regarding the revocation check, you can click on the revocation channel in the sensor to enter its settings and set "Value Lookup" to "None". You will no longer get warnings about revocation in this sensor then.

Kind regards,

Erhard
