Roar Users Guide & Documentation

Welcome! You'll find comprehensive guides and documentation to help MSPs start working with Liongard's Roar as quickly as possible, as well as support if you get stuck. Let's go #MakeITRoar!

Get Started    

TLS/SSL Certificates

Quick Details

Typically Runs From: Managed Cloud Agent
Is Auto-Discovered By: Internet Domain Inspector
Can Auto-Discover: n/a

Rate / Request Limits

Please note that this inspector will issues 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 setup; however, if it says "false," then this inspector is unnecessary.

Customer Environment

Make sure that you have setup a Customer Environment

Adding the Roar Inspector

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

Or 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. anydomain.com 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. anydomain.com)

Schedule

  • 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.

Save

  • 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.
