Disable Revocation Check - SSL Certificate Sensor



In most cases we have our SSL Certificate Sensors on a probe that can access the internet. However we have some internal/private certificates on some hosts that are monitoring from a probe without access to the internet. We only want to monitor the certificates for expiration date, but the sensor stays in a warning state because the probe cant check the revocation status.

Warning by lookup value 'Unable to check revocation status' in channel 'Revoked'

Is there a way to disable this check?

Hi Kurtis,

In order to disable the check, click the small gear in the revocation channel panel and set the value lookup to none. The channel will then always be green, regardless of the revocation state, thus the Sensor will not error.

Thank you Stephen, that's exactly what I wanted.

Hello. Is there a way to disable this under the SSL template. Use case: doing an auto-discovery on 100 server for SSL, but all have self-signed, hence need to disable the revocation check as well as Trusted RootCA check.

You could do this via Multi-Edit. The channels are all the same. In order to show all Certificate Sensors within a certain group, open up


Then you can remove the lookup in the Channel tab of the Multi-Edit dialogue.
