Info: F5 filenames cannot be changed in Venafi

F5 filenames cannot be changed.


The primary reasons behind the need to have complete control over the names are (1) generational management and (2) name collision avoidance.  If we allowed the user to specify the names we’d lose the ability to maintain backups on the device and wouldn’t be able to automatically clean-up the oldest assets—basically we’d always have to overwrite the previous cert/key.  Our automatically generated names are some combination of CN, serial number, and expiration date depending upon the driver (some have character and length limitations as well).
