If you want to disable all administrator AutoSSL notification, then you’d have to use SSH. Login to the server using SSH and run this API command:

Code:
whmapi1 set_autossl_metadata_key key=notify_autossl_expiry value=0
whmapi1 set_autossl_metadata_key key=notify_autossl_expiry_coverage value=0
whmapi1 set_autossl_metadata_key key=notify_autossl_renewal value=0 whmapi1 set_autossl_metadata_key key=notify_autossl_renewal_coverage value=0
whmapi1 set_autossl_metadata_key key=notify_autossl_renewal_coverage_reduced value=0 whmapi1 set_autossl_metadata_key key=notify_autossl_renewal_uncovered_domains value=0
If the above option doesn’t work out. Then try the next approach.

To disable notification for a single cPanel account or server wide, execute this command:

Code:
cpapi2 --user=$user CustInfo savecontactinfo notify_autossl_renewal=0 notify_autossl_renewal_coverage=0 notify_autossl_expiry_coverage=0 notify_autossl_expiry=0 notify_ssl_expiry=0
When running the command, remember to replace $user with the username of cPanel.

If you prefer to run the command for all cPanel users, then you’d have to sort the list of all users in one file and then execute it. The command will look something like this:

Code:
"for i in `cat user.txt`; do cpapi2 --user=$i CustInfo savecontactinfo notify_autossl_renewal=0 notify_autossl_renewal_coverage=0 notify_autossl_expiry_coverage=0 notify_autossl_expiry=0
notify_ssl_expiry=0;done"
So that’s it. That’s how you disable AutoSSL email notification. You can always later enable it and start getting notified regarding SSL expiration and renewals. For further assistance, get in touch with the hosting support team.
