Viewing certificate expiration information
The Identity Providers table includes a certificate expiry indication:
From 30 days prior to certificate expiry and until expiration, indicators alert the administrator as to the number of days until expiry or following it.
This allows the administrator to proactively take action and upload new certificates before they expire and prevent possible service downtimes.
