Display serial number for expiring trusted and key certificates

We utilize the Certificate Expiry Warning rule to notify our team when trusted and/or key certificates are expiring in 60 days. It doesn't appear that this is captured as part of the events. The reason I say that is the serial number is not presented in the email notification that is part of the rule. Adding the serial number will help us identify the certificate better because the same certificate may be in another Keyman database, but under a different label name.

How will this idea be used?

This enhancement will help us identify the correct certificate and prevent confusion when the same certificate is installed in another Keyman database under a different label name.
