Ignore cert expiry at truststore level and API Gateway connection policy (decrepated User agent)

In APIC V10.5.0.3, there is option available to ignore the expiry date at certificate level. It will be great if it can be implemented at truststore level to ignore all expiry date at the Cloud or API manager and also with a description comment for all the certifcate to tag to different stakeholder in large organisation.

Currently this method cannot be done with the APIC GUI even though DataPower have the option to ignore certifcate expiry date temporary. If the Management server is rebooted, all existing temporary configuration will be gone and level 2 support recommend to use the script method to upload all the certifcate which is very risky method for administator to manage if it is in production.

This applied to the replaced method for user agent (deprecated) URL to forward traffic out (Now Apigateway > Connection policy). By using the fix template on a notepad to zip it up and after that zip the manifest together to update the external URL accordingly to the gateway in cloud topology.

    Good suggestion. Updating certificate should be seamless and not cause any downtime.
