Hello Eden
Thanks for reaching us.
Would you elaborate more on your question, I'll be happy to provide further assistance.

If I understand correctly, it seems that your sensor is monitoring the wrong certificate. Is this correct? usually, the sensor will monitor the certificate from the device that you have created on PRTG, as per the sensor manual " Enter the Domain Name System (DNS) name in the settings of the parent device exactly as it is written in your certificate. You can also use wildcards." https://www.paessler.com/manuals/prtg/ssl_certificate_sensor
I would also advise going through the sensor remarks in case you have additional questions. As the sensor will use the device name as the target to monitor.
