Amazon Certificate Manager Integration

AWS Certificate Manager (ACM) enables you to handle the complexity of creating and managing public SSL/TLS certificates for your AWS-based websites and applications. With Site24x7's integration, you can track and be alerted on the certificate age and expiry based on minutes, hours, or days.

Setup and configuration

1. If you haven't already, enable access to your AWS resources between your AWS account and Site24x7's AWS account by either:

  • Creating Site24x7 as an IAM user
  • Creating a cross-account IAM role. Learn more

2. On the Integrate AWS Account page, check the appropriate box for Certificate Manager. Learn more

Policy and permissions

Site24x7 uses various ACM service APIs to collect information about your certificates. Assign the AWS Managed policy ReadOnlyAccess to the Site24x7 entity (IAM user or IAM role) to help Site24x7 collect metrics and metadata. If you want to assign a custom policy, please make sure the following read-level actions are present in the policy JSON. Learn more
