fix

We fixed a bug where removing the approval step from the certificate order process blocked custom form field values from being recorded on the certificate's Order details page.

Now, if you create custom fields for your certificate order forms and enable the Skip approval step for your account, the custom order values are recorded on the certificate's Order details page.

Custom order from fields

In the sidebar menu, click Settings > Custom Order Fields. On the Custom Order Form Fields page, click Add Custom Order Form field. See Manage custom order form fields.

Skip approval step

In the sidebar menu, click Settings > Preferences. On the Division Preferences page, expand Advanced Settings. In the Certificate Request section, under Approval Steps, select Skip approval step: remove the approval step from your certificate order processes. See Remove the approval step from the certificate order process.

fix

We fixed a certificate order form bug where Additional Emails added to the order weren’t being recorded on the certificate's Order details page.

Now, if you add additional email address to the order for those you want to receive the certificate notification emails, the email addresses are recorded on the certificate's Order details page.

fix

We fixed a cancel order bug where cancelling a certificate renewal removed the renewal option from the order.

Note: To renew these certificates, you had to contact our Support team.

Now, if you cancel a certificate renewal, the renew option remains for the order, allowing you to renew the certificate later when ready.

enhancement

We improved our Basic and Secure Site single domain certificate offerings (Standard SSL, EV SSL, Secure Site SSL, and Secure Site EV SSL), adding the Include both [your-domain].com and www. [your-domain].com in the certificate option to these certificates' order, reissue, and duplicate forms. This option allows you to choose whether to include both versions of the common name (FQDN) in these single domain certificates for free.

  • To secure both versions of the common name (FQDN), check Include both [your-domain].com and www. [your-domain].com in the certificate.
  • To secure only the common name (FQDN), uncheck Include both [your-domain].com and www. [your-domain].com in the certificate.

See Order your SSL/TLS certificates.

Works for subdomains too

The new option allows you to get both versions of base and subdomains. Now, to secure both versions of a subdomain, add the subdomain to the Common Name box (sub.domain.com) and check Include both [your-domain].com and www. [your-domain].com in the certificate. When DigiCert issues your certificate, it will include both versions of the subdomain on the certificate: [sub.domain].com and www.[sub.doman].com.

Removed Use Plus Feature for Subdomains

The Include both [your-domain].com and www. [your-domain].com in the certificate option makes the Plus Feature -- Use Plus Feature for Subdomains obsolete. So, we removed the option from the Division Preferences page (in the sidebar menu, click Settings > Preferences).

enhancement

In the DigiCert Services API, we updated the Order OV/EV SSL, Order SSL (type_hint), Order Secure Site SSL, Order Private SSL, Reissue certificate, and Duplicate certificate endpoints listed below. These changes provide more control when requesting, reissuing, and duplicating your single domain certificates, allowing you choose whether to include a specific additional SAN on these single domain certificates for free.

  • /ssl_plus
  • /ssl_ev_plus
  • /ssl_securesite
  • /ssl_ev_securesite
  • /private_ssl_plus
  • /ssl*
  • /reissue
  • /duplicate

*Note: For the Order SSL (type_hint) endpoint, only use the dns_names[] parameter as described below to add the free SAN.

To secure both versions of your domain ([your-domain].com and www. [your-domain].com), in your request, use the common_name parameter to add the domain ([your-domain].com) and the dns_names[] parameter to add the other version of the domain (www. [your-domain].com).

When DigiCert issues your certificate, it will secure both versions of your domain.

example SSL certificte request

To secure only the common name (FQDN), omit the dns_names[] parameter from your request.
