Certificate Expiration Warning for File Agent

Our team is currently looking into the use of certificate authentication with File Agent. I don't think that Control Center will have any visibility to when the certificate expires. We need Control Center to be able to report on this.

What is your industry? Non-Industry Specific
How will this idea be used?

This will be used to notify us when a certificate for File Agent expires in 60 days.
