CertCentral: Update organization and technical contacts from the organization's details page

We are happy to announce you can now manage your organization and technical contacts from your organization's details page. This new feature allows you to replace incorrect contacts anytime.

Note: Before, you could only view the existing organization and technical contacts when visiting the organization's details page. The only way to replace an organization or technical contact was when requesting a TLS certificate.

The next time you visit an organization's details page, you can update the organization contact and technical contact for the organization. After editing a contact, you will see the new contact information the next time you order a certificate that includes organization and technical contacts.

Items to note when replacing contacts:

  • Replacing a contact is not retroactive and does not affect existing certificate orders, issued or pending.
  • Replacing the organization contact does not affect the organization validation. However, we will contact the organization directly to verify the new organization contact.

See for yourself

  1. In your CertCentral account, in the left main menu, go to Certificates > Organizations.
  2. On the Organizations page, select the name of the organization.
  3. On the organization's details page, you can now replace the organization contact and add, delete, and replace the technical contact.

CertCentral Services API: Update organization and technical contacts

To help you manage the organization and technical contacts for your organizations in your API integrations, we added the following endpoints to the CertCentral Services API:


Verified Mark Certificates available now.

Verified Mark Certificates (VMCs) are a new type of certificate that allow companies to place a certified brand logo next to the “sender” field in customer inboxes—visible before the message is opened—acting as confirmation of your domain’s DMARC status and your organization’s authenticated identity. Learn more about VMC certificates.

To disable or change availability of VMC in your account, visit the Product Settings page.

Note: If you do not see VMCs in your account, it may be because we are not offering the product to all account types yet. It is also possible that the product is available, but one of your CertCentral account’s administrators turned the product off in Product Settings.


CertCentral Services API: Verified Mark Certificate enhancements

To help you manage your Verified Mark Certificate (VMC) orders in your API integrations, we’ve made the following updates to the CertCentral Services API.

New endpoints:

Updated endpoints:

  • Order info
    We updated the Order info endpoint to return a vmc object with the trademark country code, registration number, and logo information for VMC orders.
  • Email certificate
    We updated the Email certificate endpoint to support emailing a copy of your issued VMC.

To learn more about managing VMC certificates from your API integrations, visit Verified Mark Certificate workflow.


CertCentral Services API: Auto-reissue support for Multi-year Plans

We are happy to announce that the CertCentral Services API now supports automatic certificate reissue requests (auto-reissue) for Multi-year Plans. The auto-reissue feature makes it easier to maintain SSL/TLS coverage on your Multi-year Plans.

You can enable auto-reissue for individual orders in your CertCentral account. When auto-reissue is enabled, we automatically create and submit a certificate reissue request 30 days before the most recently issued certificate on the order expires.

Enable auto-reissue for a new order

To give you control over the auto-reissue setting for new Multi-year Plans, we added a new request parameter to the endpoints for ordering DV, OV, and EV TLS/SSL certificates: auto_reissue.

By default, auto-reissue is disabled for all orders. To enable auto-reissue when you request a new Multi-year Plan, set the value of the auto_reissue parameter to 1 in the body of your request.

Example request body:

Example order request body with auto reissue enabled

Note: In new order requests, we ignore the auto_reissue parameter if:

  • The product does not support Multi-year Plans.
  • Multi-year Plans are disabled for the account.

Update auto-reissue setting for existing orders

To give you control over the auto-reissue setting for existing Multi-year Plans, we added a new endpoint: Update auto-reissue settings. Use this endpoint to enable or disable the auto-reissue setting for an order.

Get auto-reissue setting for an existing order

To help you track the auto-reissue setting for existing certificate orders, we added a new response parameter to the Order info endpoint: auto_reissue. The auto_reissue parameter returns the current auto-reissue setting for the order.


ICA certificate chain selection for public DV flex certificates

We are happy to announce that select public DV certificates now support Intermediate CA certificate chain selection:

  • GeoTrust DV SSL
  • Thawte SSL 123 DV
  • RapidSSL Standard DV
  • RapidSSL Wildcard DV
  • Encryption Everywhere DV

You can add a feature to your CertCentral account that enables you to control which DigiCert ICA certificate chain issues the end-entity certificate when you order these public DV products.

This feature allows you to:

  • Set the default ICA certificate chain for each supported public DV certificate.
  • Control which ICA certificate chains certificate requestors can use to issue their DV certificate.

Configure ICA certificate chain selection

To enable ICA selection for your account:

  1. Contact your account manager or our Support team.
  2. Then, in your CertCentral account, in the left main menu, go to Settings > Product Settings.
  3. On the Product Settings page, configure the default and allowed intermediates for each supported and available DV certificate.

For more information and step-by-step instructions, see the Configure the ICA certificate chain feature for your public TLS certificates.


DigiCert Services API: DV certificate support for ICA certificate chain selection

In the DigiCert Services API, we made the following updates to support ICA selection in your DV certificate order requests:

Pass in the issuing ICA certificate's ID as the value for the ca_cert_id parameter in your order request's body.

Example DV certificate request:

Example DV TLS certificate request

For more information about using ICA selection in your API integrations, see DV certificate lifecycle – Optional ICA selection.


In the DigiCert Services API, we added four new endpoints for ordering the new more flexible Basic and Secure Site SSL/TLS certificates. These more flexible SSL/TLS certificates make it easier to get the certificate to fit your needs and will replace the old Basic and Secure Site products.

Use these endpoints to place new orders and renewal orders only. They cannot be used to convert existing Basic or Secure Site certificate orders.

To activate any of these new certificates for your CertCentral account, contact your account manager or our Support team.

  • Order Basic OV
  • Order Basic EV
  • Order Secure Site OV
  • Order Secure Site EV

Flexible OV and EV certificates

These certificates provide the encryption and authentication you've come to expect from DigiCert SSL/TLS certificates, while allowing you to build an OV or EV certificate with a mix of whatever domains and wildcard domains* are needed to fit your needs.

*Note: Industry standards support wildcard domains in OV SSL/TLS certificates only. EV SSL/TLS certificates don't support the use of wildcard domains.
