Validate HTTPS connection in URL Ping test
I found current URL Ping test doesn't validate the HTTPS connection, e.g. if the SSL certificate's subject doesn't match the domain, the URL ping test will still pass. Sometimes if the SSL certificate expires, I'd like the URL Ping test fails so I can get the notification about it, because the end users will get the error when they access the URL with web browser.
Please Do consider it.
This is planned for single URL tests (not multi-step tests), for early 2020. We are planning to have two modes:
a. fail test if SSL negotiation fails
b. fail test if SSL cert is about to expire
For (b), what config options would be you be interested in? Fail if cert will expire in 7 days, 30 days, 90 days?

This would be extremely helpful.

Any status on this?

30 days would be great! we had to create our own custom solution about tracking SSL expiration on the ASE and consumption/public tenancy.
Great to see that! We would like the same feature to test if our SSL certificate is expired or not.
I would say check for expired/failed negotiation, and check for expiration in the next 30 days.
Hello, has this cert check for expiration date implemented?
With the push for all sites now to use https this does seem to be a rather large hole for a test that reports site availability.
