Title Simplify adding CAs and new permission to perform requests from the Checkmk server
Date Dec 13, 2021
Checkmk Editon Checkmk Raw (CRE)
Checkmk Version 2.1.0i1
Level Trivial Change
Class New Feature
Compatibility Compatible - no manual interaction needed

With the new option "Fetch certificate from server" in the global settings "Trusted certificate authorities for SSL" and "Connection to remote agent bakery" it is now possible to contact a host from the Checkmk server to retrieve CA information.

To perform these actions a user needs the permission "Perform requests from the Checkmk server". By default only the Role admin has this permission.

The mechanism to fetch the data is essentially the same as for the "Livestatus encryption of host HOSTNAME" in the "Distributed monitoring".
