Certificate Replacement - Deployment Process

Being familiar with the certificate expiring notifications, I’m looking to determine what actions can/should be taken when we have a certificate ready to replace an expiring one. After importing the new certificate to OctopusDeploy, it appears I need to re-deploy the application(s) to the production environment.

In the case of one of our primary certificates, that would mean redeploying two dozen critical applications to production.

Is this best practice, or is there an alternative process others are following?

Hi @jeff!

You are correct that the updated certificate will deploy on the next time that you deploy to productions. Alternately, you could make a new project with a single-step deployment action to just deploy the updated certificate, as another option.

I hope this helps, and please don’t hesitate to let me know if you have any further questions.
