Certificate check multiple endpoints with dummy host

Hi guys,

I need to check multiple certificates on multiple endpoints, but I don’t want to create one host for each check. I thought on creating a dummy host and attach service checks for each certificate, however, I can’t find a suitable way.

Do you guys have any idea on the best way to do this?

I use https://exchange.nagios.org/directory/Plugins/Others/check_multi/details
for this sort of thing.

Hello @adrianodsb,
Could you create a host object with IP, than add all the service objects for certificates to this host object? This is what I have done to check the expiration date of HTTPS certificates.

Hello @aclark6996, I did something similar, but I used a dummy host object instead and attached all service checks, it worked, thank you!
