Can I get some clarification about the User Account SSL Resources section?

If the only certs in use on the server were autossl generated, then should their be nothing in this section? I have one in there. (I think there used to be more some time ago, but they seem to have either removed themselves, or else I deleted them all at some point and this one reappeared. I don't remember that far back.).

If I create any self-signed certs, or install purchased certs, is this where they will be listed?

Will they automatically be removed when they expire and are no longer in use by anything?

The one cert in there now isn't expired, is for the hostname (host.domain.tld), is for one year (not 90 days, like autossl), and also serves the shared IP. I discovered this when I saw the cert warning when visiting a temp address (https://1.2.3.4/~username).

I don't think anything is wrong, but I'm not clear how this all works together. Can you please help? The docs for the page were of no help.

@cPanelMichael - One of you took time to rename this (more succinctly) but didn't offer any help...

None of the posts that I found here addressed my questions. The docs for the page weren't any help.

Nope. I think it was more clear in the old title I put on this...

I'm referring to WHM in Home > SSL/TLS > SSL Storage Manager, in the section at the bottom titled "User Account SSL Resources."

So what's with that? I mean where does it come from, why is it there? Obviously I didn't purchase it.

Is this section where certs that are available for use other than autossl are displayed?

Is this also where a self-signed server cert would live? Seems like I remember seeing more there on a server where I had experimented with adding certs.

There's not much doc on this, which surprises me.
