Account setting for certificate lifecycle email language preference
We've added an account language setting for the certificate lifecycle emails sent from CertCentral. Now, on the Notifications page, you can set the language preference for the certificate lifecycle emails for the entire account.
Currently, we support these 11 languages for certificate lifecycle specific emails:
How does certificate lifecycle email language support work?
When you go to the Notifications page in CertCentral, use the Email Language dropdown to set the certificate lifecycle email language for the entire account.
For example, if you set the email language to Italian, all certificate lifecycle emails will be in Italian regardless of the individual account language setting.
Note: The Email Language option only changes the language used in the certificate lifecycle emails. It does not change the language used in an individual account. On the Profile Settings page, use the Language dropdown to set the language for your account. See CertCentral language preferences.
Where are these certificate life cycle settings?
To access the Certificate Lifecycle email defaults settings, in the left main menu, go to Settings > Notifications. To learn more, see Configure certificate lifecycle email settings.
New certificate lifecycle email setting
We added another notification setting to the Certificate lifecycle email settings—Send organization approval emails to the user placing order. This setting allows you to control if the organization approval email is sent to the certificate requestor.
What is the organization approval email?
When the requestor is an admin or organization contact, we send them an email letting them know DigiCert has validated the organization, and they can now issue certificates for it.
Note: This new setting only applies to orders where a new, yet to be validated organization is included in the request.
Where are these certificate life cycle settings?
To access the Certificate Lifecycle email defaults settings, in the left main menu, go to Settings > Notifications. To learn more, see Configure certificate lifecycle email recipients.
Discovery now available in all CertCentral accounts
We are happy to announce that all existing CertCentral accounts now include Discovery, our newest and most robust certificate discovery tool.
Note: For those who were using Certificate Inspector, Discovery replaces our long time DigiCert tool, Certificate Inspector.
By default, Discovery includes Cloud scan and a Sensor scan trial with a 100-certificate limit.
Cloud scan uses a cloud-based sensor, so there is nothing to install or manage. You can start scanning immediately to find all your public facing SSL/TLS certificates regardless of issuing Certificate Authority (CA). Cloud-scan runs once every 24 hours.
Sensor scan is our most robust version of Discovery. It uses sensors to scan your network to quickly find all your internal and public facing SSL/TLS certificates regardless of the issuing Certificate Authority (CA). Discovery also identifies problems in certificate configurations and implementations along with certificate-related vulnerabilities or problems in your endpoint configurations.
Scans are centrally configured and managed from inside your CertCentral account. Scan results are displayed in an intuitive and interactive dashboard inside CertCentral. Configure scans to run once or multiple times on a set schedule.
Discovery audit logs
Discovery has added a new feature—Discovery Audit Logs—allowing you to track Discovery-related activities in your CertCentral account. These audit logs provide insight into user activity enabling you to see areas where training may be required, reconstruct events to troubleshoot problems, detect misuse, and discover problem areas.
To make it easier to sort through the information in the Discover audit logs, we've include several filters:
To access the Discovery Audit Log, in your CertCentral account, in the left main menu, go to Account > Audit Logs. On the Audit Logs page, click Discovery Audit Logs.
Discovery language support
As we work to globalize our product offerings and make our websites, platforms, and documentation more accessible, we are happy to announce that we've added language support to Discovery in CertCentral.
Now, when configuring your language preference in CertCentral, Discovery is included in the configuration.

Bug fix: DV certificate orders did not honor Submit base domains for validation account setting
We fixed a bug in the DV certificate domain control validation (DCV) process where DV certificate orders did not adhere to the Submit base domains for validation account setting.
Note: For DV certificate orders, you were required to validate the domain exactly as named in the order.
Now, DV certificate orders honor the Submit base domains for validation account setting, allowing you to validate your subdomains at the base domain level on your DV certificate orders.
To view the Domain Validation Scope settings in your account, go to Settings > Preferences. On the Division preferences page, expand +Advanced Settings. The Domain Validation Scope settings are in the Domain Control Validation (DCV) section.

How does language support work?
When you visit the portals, use the language selector (globe icon) to change the portal display language. We save your language selection for 30 days so you don't need to reselect it every time you visit our documentation site.
