Hi, The certificate is going to expire. So we need to update the certificate. Do you think we still need to update its key? It looks like that the key does not have expiration. Do you think so? Thank you

You can use the option to "Renew this certificate with same key" to update the certificate and keep the same key.
I have done this several times.

Thank you so much for your fast reply. but the device is F5, so it should be able to work, right?

I am not familiar with an F5 but Certificates are standards based so I would assume it would be fine.
