Azure Active Directory secret auto update or extend question.

Qingyu Luo 51 Reputation points Microsoft Employee

Hi guys I have one question for the Certificates & secrets in Azure Active Directory. As we can see all these certificates and secrets have the expire time, and my question is is there any way to set a auto refresh switch or some other tools that can support auto updated? or the does AAD provide any API to update the certificates and secrets?(which means I can write a timer task to trigger the update process.)
the purpose to ask this question is to consider some situations that one of our system's module is failure due to certificates and secrets expired issue.
many thanks in advance.

    By default Azure AD will send an email notification 60, 30, and 7 days before the SAML certificate expires. Also you can review the list of Certificates and Secrets details with the mentioned scripts in this article as it is very useful to have a track of all the certs and secrets app-management-powershell-samples

    Please check this link as it provides detailed steps for auto renewal of Certificates - tutorial-rotate-certificates

    Hope this helps.
