Certificate expiry Alert

This script has been written long ago but started using it now, not a complex logic/code but

assisted few of our teams to monitor their enviornment certificates 60 days before expiry.

here is what it does:

  • Read the CSV file

 

  • Read  Cert name, expiry , alert email & Type

$CertName = $i.CertName

$Expiry = $i.Expiry

$AlertEmail = $i.AlertEmail

$Type = $i.Type

 

  • Based on above it compares the expiry date with Today’s date & if only 60 days are remaining for expiry, it will send alert.

Attention: Cert $CertName will expire on $Expiry – $Type


Download and schedule the batch file via task scheduler to start monitoring of certs.

Please change below variables as per your enviornment:

$smtpserver = “smtp server”

$from = “CertExpiry@labtest.com”

$days = “-60”

$errormail = “vikass@labtest.com” #if script resulted in error

Note: it has been tested with date format MM/DD/YYYY
