Create your API token

The API tokens have the same permissions and scope as the administrator who creates them.


To create API tokens, an administrator needs the Account Manager > View user permission. See DigiCert ONE access.

  1. In DigiCert ONE, in the top menu on the right, select the person icon > Admin Profile.

  2. On the Admin page, in the API Tokens section, select Create API token.

  3. On the Create API token page, add the details as needed:

    1. Name

      Enter a name for the API token. This name is the display name on the API token cards. The name must be unique and only include letters, numbers, spaces, dashes, and underscores.

    2. End date (optional)

      Adding an end date is not required. The end date is in UTC. For example, if you select 12 August 2023 as your end date, your API token expires on 12 August 2023 at 23:59:59 UTC.


      If you add an end date, make sure to note when the API token expires. You must update all API integrations using the API token before it expires. If you don't, the API token integrations will stop working.

      You can always edit the API token details and extend the expiration date before it expires.

  4. Select Create.

  5. On the Congratulations page, copy the API token and save it in a secure location so you can use it later.


    The API token is only displayed only once. You cannot access it after you select Finish. If you ever lose the API token, you'll need to delete the lost token and create a new one.

  6. After you save the token, select Finish.

What's next

You are ready to use the API token to build your DigiCert ONE integrations. Your new API token appears in the list of tokens on your Administrator details page, under API Tokens. Return here to update the end date, disable, enable, or delete API tokens.
