Rate/Request Limits

Please note that this Inspector will issue dozens of requests in order to determine protocols and algorithms supported by the certificate.

If you wish to limit the connections/request please use the Bypass TLS Algorithm Checks feature in the Inspector template.

TLS/SSL Certificate Inspector

Not all associated domains will have a TLS/SSL inspection, although it is strongly recommended. You can confirm whether or not TLS/SSL exists for a site by simply setting up the Internet Domain & DNS inspection first and reviewing the Overview tab.

If it says "true," then it is strongly recommended that this Inspector be set up; however, if it says "false," then this Inspector is unnecessary.

Customer Environment

Make sure that you have set up a Customer Environment

Roar Inspector Setup

  • Navigate to the Client Environment
  • Choose Add System
  • Select Domain
  • Under Action > Select Add System

If you are an Administrator:

  • Navigate to Admin > Inspectors
  • Click Add System
  • Select Domain
  • Under Action > Select Add System
  • Friendly Name - We recommend using the actual "domain name + TLS/SSL" that will be inspected without any preceding characters (e.g. TLS/SSL) as this will make it easily searchable within the UI when in use.
  • Agent - Select the agent to be used for the inspection (this should be the default ROAR-DEDICATED-LINUX)
  • Domain - Provide the actual domain name without any prefixes like https:// or www (e.g.


  • The default scheduling settings of 1 per day is typically sufficient, but you have the option to adjust to another setting if necessary.
  • Unless you are using the inspection for a defined period of time, it's best to leave the end date blank so that it will continue to run perpetually.

Inspector Version

Leave the inspection version default (latest) unless instructed differently by a member of the Liongard team, as this will ensure that any improvements to the inspection automatically roll out.

Retries and Timeout

There are two additional settings "Number of Retries" and "Timeout" that contain default (recommended) settings. It's only necessary to adjust these settings if an inspection failure occurs, since some under-performing sites require additional adjustments for the inspection to properly complete, though very rare.


  • Click Save to schedule the Inspector

Trigger Inspection Schedule

You have the option to run the Inspector by clicking the "Play" icon.

This inspection typically runs 1-2 minutes once processing begins.


Roar does not auto-discover subdomain's TLS/SSL Certificate Inspectors.

If you are managing subdomains with TLS/SSL Certificates, you will need to roll out additional TLS/SSL Certificate Inspectors for each subdomain’s TLS/SSL Certificate.
