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.
Updates to the Domain details page
We simplified the Domain Validation section on the Domain details page to display only two validation types with their expiration dates: OV and EV. We also updated the page to show the domain validation expiration dates calculated from when the Domain Control Verification (DCV) was completed (OV: +825 days, EV: +13 months).
Note: Previously, you could see up to two other validation types: Grid and Private. Grid certificates have the same validity period as OV: 825 days. Domain validation is not required for private certificates as these certificates are not publicly trusted.
To view a domain's validation expiration dates, in the left main menu, go to Certificates > Domains. On the Domains page, locate the domain and click its Domain Name link. On the Domain details page, under Domain Validation, view your domain validations and when they expire.
CertCentral Services API: Improved List domains and Domain info endpoints
In the DigiCert Services API, we updated the List domains and Domain info endpoints, enabling you to see when the domain control validations (DCV) for the domain expire: OV and EV validations. This new information is only returned in the response if you include the URL query string
Now, when you get a list of all domains or information about a specific domain and you include the URL query string
include_validation=true, you can see when the DCVs for the domain expire.
Example requests with the URL query string:
Example response – domain control validation (DCV) expiration dates
Removed "Pending" column from Domains page
We found a bug on the Domains page preventing us from providing accurate information about a domain's pending validations. As a temporary solution, we are removing the Pending column from the page until a permanent fix can be deployed.
To view if a domain has pending validations, in the left main menu, go to Certificates > Domains. On the Domains page, locate the domain and click its Domain Name link. On the Domain details page, under Domain Validation, check to see if the domain has pending validations: OV and EV.
