CertCentral: Default behavior change
By default, we will no longer use organization unit information included in a CSR to autopopulate the Organization Unit value in OV/EV SSL certificate request forms. When ordering these certificates, you can still manually add organization unit information.
Note: Organization unit (OU) information is not required to purchase an OV/EV SSL certificate. Furthermore, when you include OU information in a certificate request, we are required to perform additional validation. This may delay certificate issuance, including for requests where the organization and domains have been prevalidated.
CertCentral: New account setting (Enterprise and Partner)
For CertCentral Enterprise and Partner accounts, we added a new account setting—Autopopolate OU Field. This option allows you to use organization unit information included in a CSR to autopopulate the Organization Unit value in OV/EV SSL certificate request forms.
In the left main menu, go to Settings > Preferences. On the Division Preferences page, the new setting is in the Advanced Settings section under Certificate Requests. See our Autopopulate Organization Unit field instructions.
