Use 'Additional Fields' in Key Manager Plus to attach any extra information about keys and certificates stored in the repository. There are four types of fields to create: character, numeric, date and email. Once an additional field is created, the default value assigned to it will be applied to all entries in SSH Keys and SSL Certificates tabs and will be visible to all users. Therefore, it is ideal to use additional fields for assigning common attributes such as organization name, or email address. Also, the Column Chooser icon helps you organize columns and additional fields in SSH Keys and SSL Certificates tab views, and in Reports and Dashboard tab views.
Follow the below steps to create additional fields that will apply to both keys and certificates tabs.
i. Character: To store text inputs.
ii. Numeric: To store numerical inputs.
iii. Date: To store date and time inputs.
iv. Email: To store relevant email addresses.
3. Add the Field Name, Default Value, Description and select if you want to add it to SSL Keys tab, SSH Certificates tab or Both.
4. Click Save. To view the newly created additional field under the SSH Keys or the SSL tab, click the column chooser icon () from the top bar.
Note: Certificate Expiry Notification emails are sent to the email addresses specified in additional fields of the type Email. These notification emails will be customized according to the format configured for notification emails in the Notification and Schedule tabs.
When you create an additional field of the type Character/Numeric/Date/Email, the field is added to both the SSH keys and SSL certificates tabs immediately. Follow the below steps to display an additional field:
3. In the column chooser pop-up, select the checkbox beside the additional field you added and click Save. Now, the additional field and the default value added during its creation will be displayed among the other fields. The same field value will be applied to all entries in the Keys and Certificate repository but the value can be edited and customized using the Edit option.
Once a default value for the additional field is added, the same value will be applied to all the certificate and key entries in the SSL certificates and SSH Keys tabs respectively. To change the field value for a particular certificate, follow the below steps:
