We added two new statuses to the Organizations and Organization details pages: validation expires soon, and validation expired. These new statuses make it easier to proactively track your organization validations and make sure they stay up to date.
Now, when you visit the Organizations page (in the sidebar menu click Certificates > Organizations), you can quickly identify organizations with validation that is expiring soon or has already expired. For more details about the expiring or expired organization validation, click the organization name.
We fixed a bug where some accounts were unable to submit organizations for EV CS – Code Signing Organization Extended Validation. The affected accounts only contained EV Code Signing and Code Signing products.
As part of the fix, we split up the EV and EV CS verified contact options. Now, when submitting an organization for EV CS – Code Signing Organization Extended Validation, you can submit the organization's verified contact for EV CS order approvals only. Similarly, when submitting an organization for EV – Extended Organization Validation (EV), you can submit the organization's verified contact for EV SSL certificate order approvals only.
Note: For EV code signing certificate orders, organizations and the organization's verified contacts need to be pre-validated. For more information about organization pre-validation, see our Submit an organization for pre-validation instructions.
We enhanced the Order # details page for pending OV SSL and EV SSL certificate orders. In the DigiCert Needs To section, under Verify Organization Details, we now list the steps that need to be completed to validate the organization (e.g., complete Place of Business Verification) along with the status for each step: complete or pending.
Previously, we provided only a high-level overview of the organization validation process – Verify Organization Details – without offering any details as to what steps needed to be completed before the organization was fully validated.
We fixed a bug on the forms in CertCentral where the state/province/territory field appeared as being required when the country selected didn't require that information (for example when adding a new organization or a credit card).
Note: This bug didn't prevent you from completing these transactions. For example, you were still able to add an organization or a credit card with or without filling in the state/province/territory field.
Now, in the forms, the state/province/territory field is labeled as optional for countries that don't require this information as part of their transactions.
Note: US and Canada are the only countries that require you to add a state or province/territory.
