Updates to the Domain details page
We simplified the Domain Validation section on the Domain details page to display only two validation types with their expiration dates: OV and EV. We also updated the page to show the domain validation expiration dates calculated from when the Domain Control Verification (DCV) was completed (OV: +825 days, EV: +13 months).
Note: Previously, you could see up to two other validation types: Grid and Private. Grid certificates have the same validity period as OV: 825 days. Domain validation is not required for private certificates as these certificates are not publicly trusted.
To view a domain's validation expiration dates, in the left main menu, go to Certificates > Domains. On the Domains page, locate the domain and click its Domain Name link. On the Domain details page, under Domain Validation, view your domain validations and when they expire.
CertCentral Services API: Improved List domains and Domain info endpoints
In the DigiCert Services API, we updated the List domains and Domain info endpoints, enabling you to see when the domain control validations (DCV) for the domain expire: OV and EV validations. This new information is only returned in the response if you include the URL query string
Now, when you get a list of all domains or information about a specific domain and you include the URL query string
include_validation=true, you can see when the DCVs for the domain expire.
Example requests with the URL query string:

Removed "Pending" column from Domains page
We found a bug on the Domains page preventing us from providing accurate information about a domain's pending validations. As a temporary solution, we are removing the Pending column from the page until a permanent fix can be deployed.
To view if a domain has pending validations, in the left main menu, go to Certificates > Domains. On the Domains page, locate the domain and click its Domain Name link. On the Domain details page, under Domain Validation, check to see if the domain has pending validations: OV and EV.
We fixed a bug on the pending SSL certificate's order details page where the link for a pending domain that provides you with actions to prove control over a domain was broken.
Now, when you go to a pending certificate's order details page and click the link for a pending domain, the Prove Control Over Domain window opens where you can choose a DCV method to prove control over that domain.
We fixed a domain validation display bug on the order details pages where domains with expired validations were showing a completed status with no actions for completing the domain validation.
Now, when you go to an order's details page, we show a pending validation status symbol next to the domain along with actions for completing the domain validation. (In the sidebar menu, click Certificates > Orders and then on the Orders page click the order number.)
