CertCentral Services API: Domain info enhancement
We updated the Domain info API response to include the
expiration_date parameter for the DCV token associated with the domain. Now, when you call the Domain info API and set the value of the
include_dcv query parameter to true, the
dcv_token object in the response includes the
expiration_date of the DCV token for the domain.
CertCentral Services API: Order code signing certificates with a custom expiration date
In the CertCentral Services API, we updated the Order code signing certificate endpoint to support custom expiration dates. Now, when you order a code signing certificate, you can use the
custom_expiration_date request parameter to set the exact date the certificate will expire.
Example request body:
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:
Example response – domain control validation (DCV) expiration dates
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.
