SFDC Expiring Certificate Notification

Knowledge Article Number 000231048
Description Customers might receive an email alert that looks like:

"You have one or more certificates in your Salesforce org XYZ, 00D* that will expire soon. Please review the list below and visit Certificate and Key Management from Setup to make an update. 

- SelfSignedCert_XYZ, Self-Signed, expires on MM/DD/YYYY. Warning: This certificate will expire in 60 day(s) "
Resolution This email is sent out to customers when one or more of the self-signed certificates in their orgs (Production or Sandbox) are about to expire. Currently, we alert customers at 60 day mark, 30 day mark, 10 day mark and day of expiry.

Any users with Modify All Data and View Setup and configuration perms, along with all the system administrators in the org will receive these email notifications.

These alerts aim at helping the customer renew their certificates in a timely fashion and avoid any service disruption in the application where these certificates are being used. Most common applications of these certificates are SSO and custom HTTPS domains.
