Checking Website Certificate Expiry Dates with CheckCentral

February 4, 2019

If you have websites that you're in charge of maintaining the SSL certificates for, you can monitor them for expiring certificates using this PowerShell script. The script can be run from anywhere, as it connects to the public URL for the website, and it will email the results wherever you like. You can set it up to email yourself, or you can configure it to email the results to CheckCentral so that you can automate the status parsing.

    Setting Up the Check Schedule

  1. On your CheckCentral dashboard, click the "New Check" link.
  2. Give the Check a name. It can be whatever you like, for example "Website Certificate Expiry Check."
  3. Choose an existing Check Group to add this check to, or create a new one if you like, by clicking "New Group."
  4. For this guide, we'll assume that you're going to run the script every day. In order for CheckCentral to notify you when the Check is overdue (e.g. if the script didn't run as scheduled, or got hung up on its last run), you'll want to configure the "Emails are expected every" setting to "1 Day."
  5. Notice that there's nowhere to assign the time of day that the email is expected. This is because CheckCentral will automatically adjust the expected time based on when the last email arrived. If your script runs at 9am and finishes at 9:01am today, then the next email will be expected at 9:01am tomorrow. In case the script runs slightly late one day, you can configure the Check to only notify you if the email is late by more than a certain amount of time. We'll leave it at the default of 30 minutes for this example, which means that you won't get an "Overdue" notification until 9:31am tomorrow. This allows an extra 30 minutes for the script to run before any action is taken.
  6. The Description field is optional, but can be helpful for documentation purposes.
  7. The Check Information Section
    The Check Information Section

    Configuring the Matching Rules

  8. The "Matching Rules" section is where you'll tell CheckCentral which emails should be processed by this Check. By default, the Check's email address will be populated with a custom email address based on the Check name. For this example we'll change it to "demo+certexpirycheck@mycheckcentral.cc." You'll see where this gets used later in this guide.
  9. The Matching Rules Section
    The Matching Rules Section

    Configuring the Status Rules

  10. In the "Status" section, you'll set what you want the default status to be when an email matches the check, but doesn't match any of the Success/Warning/Failure rules. Generally it's best to leave this set to Failure, then specify your Success and Warning criteria. This way it's only marked as successful or warning if it matches your given rules, anything else is marked as a failure so that you get notified and can investigate further.
  11. The "Success Rules" section is where you'll set the criteria that will mark the Activity as successful. Click the "Add Success Rule" link. A successful run (no certificates expiring soon) of the script will have the word "Success" in the email Subject, so we'll set the rule to "Subject contains Success"
  12. The "Warning Rules" section is where you'll set the criteria that will mark the Activity as a warning. Click the "Add Warning Rule" link. The email notification for a the script will have the word "Warn" in the email Subject if one or more certificates are expiring soon, so well set the rule to "Subject contains Warn"
  13. The Status Rules Section
    The Status Rules Section

    Configuring Notifications

  14. In the Notifications section, you can choose how to you want to be notified about changes to the status of this Check. In this example, enabling the checkbox for "Email" will send an email when the Check status changes, to everyone on the CheckCentral Organization > Users page that has Email notifications enabled. If there are consecutive Success emails, a notification won't be sent every time, only when the status changes from Success to Warning/Failure, and back.
  15. Click the "Save Check" button to finish setting up this Check.
  16. The Notifications Section
    The Notifications Section

    Setting Up the Script

  17. Now that our Check is setup in CheckCentral, we'll need to setup the script on a machine that can run it every day. First, download the script: CheckWebsiteCertExpiry.zip, and extract it to somewhere on your computer. (e.g. C:\Scripts)
  18. Go to the new folder (e.g. C:\Scripts\CheckWebsiteCertExpiry) and edit websites.txt with the list of websites you want to check. Make sure to put one URL on each line.
  19. Open a PowerShell console and run the script to make sure it works. For example:
    .\CheckWebsiteCertExpiry.ps1 -Websites (Get-Content websites.txt) -EmailFromAddress <Email From Address> -EmailToAddress <Check Email Address from Step 7>
  20. Now refresh the Check page for the Check you created and you should see the new Activity that was sent in by the script.
  21. You're ready to setup the Windows Scheduled Task now, so that the script will run automatically every day. First, edit the parameters at the top of the "CreateScheduledTask.ps1" script and save the changes.
  22. Open an administrative PowerShell console and run .\CreateScheduledTask.ps1.
  23. If everything was successful, you should see the new Scheduled Task in the Windows Task Scheduler. Double-check that the schedule looks good, then run it and verify that a second Activity shows up in the CheckCentral Check.

As always, if you run into any trouble configuring your Checks, please feel free to contact us and we'll be glad to help out.

DisplayFusion 9.5 Beta 1 Now Available!

January 23, 2019

We're very excited to announce that DisplayFusion 9.5 Beta 1 is now available for download! This version is mostly bug fixes for issues from 9.4.3.

Important Notes!

  • The first time you open the Settings > Screen Saver tab after installing 9.5 Beta 1, it will be very slow to open, due to Windows Defender locking the .scr files for a long time during the initial scan.
  • We've made a change to how refresh rates are set with Monitor Profiles. If you run into trouble with your profiles after updating, you may need to re-save them.
  • WallpaperFusion is now limited to slideshow intervals of 15 minutes or higher to reduce costs.

DisplayFusion 9.5 Beta 1 Highlights

  • Fixed a couple of Chrome issues with Monitor Splitting
  • The "Mirror Selected Area" function now works correctly when run via key combination
  • Updated Google Photos wallpaper source to the new API, as the old one is shutdown
  • Added search support for WallpaperAbyss wallpaper source
  • Fixed an issue with Image Info when using tag
  • Fixed the filter box in the WallpaperFusion tag selector
  • Using "Move Window to Next Monitor" on Remote Desktop windows now moves the connection bar as well
  • Fixed an issue where some refresh rates couldn't be set, note that you may need to re-save your Monitor Profiles.
  • Resolved an issue where Monitor Configuration wouldn't apply on some systems (including VMware with guest 3D acceleration disabled)

Updating DisplayFusion

We encourage everyone to update to this new version today to take advantage of these improvements. If you've already purchased DisplayFusion, it's a lifetime license, so you can upgrade to this version at no cost! If you would like to see a complete list of all the changes, please visit the DisplayFusion Beta Change Log.

Check Frequency Settings and Dashboard Updates

January 21, 2019

We're pleased to announce several updates to CheckCentral, with improvements to Check schedules and dashboard interaction.

We have streamlined the frequency settings for checks, with options for simple and advanced scheduling. With advanced schedules, you can now specify both a daily time window to expect emails, and choose which days of the week emails will be sent.

Check Frequency Settings
Advanced Check Frequency Settings

As well, check filters on your dashboard can now be bookmarked, as the filter will be remembered when refreshing the page or sharing the URL. Also, filtering the checks on your CheckCentral dashboard will only display checks from uncollapsed groups, solving an issue that resulted in displaying all checks from a group when uncollapsing it with filters applied.

Filtered Collapsible Dashboard Groups

Additionally, the CheckCentral Data API can now return the recent history of a check's activity if requested.

If you have feedback or questions about these updates or any aspect of CheckCentral, please let us know!
