Hello Team,

Please suggest a possible way to configure email alerts before the HTTPS certificate expiry in Confluence Server 6.0.5 version.

Hi Priyanka,

this is a common task with sys admins but regularly not done within Confluence directly.

Assuming your Confluence server is checked for some vital data (disk space, load, ping check, uptime) the check for cert expiry is a classical check amongst the others.

Do you have monitoring in place which could also do the cert expiry check?



Hello Daniel,

Thanks for the reply

In that case we have to do to generate an event ID from the application. however, as long as to get a custom EventID generated, the monitoring agent on the server can poll and pick this up when it generates it will then inject into the system where it becomes a TFSNow alert.

The monitoring tool which is used is UIM (unified infrastructure monitoring - by Broadcom).

Can you please help me how from Confluence I can generate Event/EventID for HTTPs certificate expiry.



This will not work like you describe as Confluence has no facility to monitor SSL certificate.

What was mentioned earlier as a suggestion was a simple best practise seen all over the world. It is possible indeed that you need to adjust the current setup.


You can put certificates in a table along with their expiry. But I believe this is not what you want.
