CertCentral Services API: Improved Revoke order certificates and Revoke certificate endpoints

In the DigiCert Services API, we updated the Revoke order certificates and Revoke certificate endpoints, enabling you to skip the approval step when revoking a certificate.

Note: Previously, the approval step was required and could not be skipped.

We added a new optional parameter, "skip_approval": true, that allows you to skip the approval step when submitting a request to revoke one certificate or all certificates on an order.

Note: For skip approvals to work for certificate revoke requests, the API key must have admin privileges. See Authentication.

Now, on your revoke certificate and revoke order certificate requests, you can skip the approval step and immediately submit the request to DigiCert for certificate revocation.

Bug fix: DV certificate issuance emails did not respect certificate format settings

We fixed a bug in the DV certificate issuance process where the Your certificate for your-domain email notification did not deliver the certificate in the format specified in your account settings.

Note: Previously, we included a certificate download link in all DV certificate issued email notifications.

Now, when we issue your DV certificate order, the email delivers the certificate in the format specified in your account's Certificate Format settings.

Configure certificate format for certificate issuance emails

In the left main menu, go to Settings > Preferences. On the Division Preferences page, expand Advance Settings. In the Certificate Format section, select the certificate format: attachment, plain text, or download link. Click Save Settings.

Bug fix: DV certificate not attached to email notification

We fixed a bug in the DV certificate issuance process where we weren't attaching a copy of the DV certificate to the Your certificate for your-domain email notification. As a temporary fix to this issue, we now include a certificate download link in the DV certificate email notification.

Note: After DigiCert issues a certificate, it is immediately available in your CertCentral account.

To use the download link in the email, you must have access to the CertCentral account and have permissions to access the certificate order.

If an email recipient doesn't have access to the account or to the certificate order, you can email them a copy of the DV certificate from your CertCentral account. See our instructions for how to email a DV certificate from your CertCentral account.

Legacy partner account upgrades to CertCentral

In the DigiCert Service API, we updated the—DigiCert order ID—to make it easier to find the corresponding DigiCert order IDs for your migrated legacy GeoTrust TLS/SSL certificate orders.

Now, you can use the GeoTrust order ID* to access the DigiCert order ID for your GeoTrust certificate orders. Additionally, when using the GeoTrust order ID, we return the most current DigiCert certificate order ID.

*Note: In the legacy partner accounts, you only have access to the GeoTrust order ID for your GeoTrust TLS/SSL certificate orders.

Background

After you migrate your active, public SSL/TLS certificate orders to your new account, we assign a unique DigiCert order ID to each migrated legacy SSL/TLS certificate order.
