After you've added organizations, submit them for validation to authorize them for specific types of certificates. When ordering SSL Certificates, this authorization makes domain validation quicker because the organization part of the domain validation process is already completed.
In your CertCentral account, in the sidebar menu, click Certificates > Organizations.
On the Organizations page, use the drop-down list, search box, and column headers to filter the list of organizations.
Click the link for the organization that you want to submit for validation and authorize for certificates.
On the organization’s information page, in the Submit Organization for Validation section, select the validation types (certificates) you want DigiCert to validate the organization for.
Add verified contact (EV / EV CS and CS)
If the organization validations you chose don't require verified users, skip to step 7.
When you submit orders for EV TLS/SSL, Code Signing, and EV Code Signing certificate orders, we must contact the "verified" contact as part of the organization validation process. However, before we can reach out to the verified contact, we must first validate the contact.
During the organization pre-validation process, you can also submit the organization's verified contacts to be pre-validated. This quickens the certificate issuance process for EV TLS/SSL, Code Signing, and EV Code Signing certificates. Because we've already validated the contact, all we do is contact them and get their order approval.
Only an EV/EV CS verified user can approve Extended Validation (EV) and EV Code Signing Certificate requests. Only a CS verified user can approve Code Signing Certificate requests.
If you've enabled the Allow non-DigiCert users to be used as verified contacts feature (see Enable adding non-CertCentral account users as verified contacts), you will see two options: Existing Contact and New Contact. The Existing Contact option lets you assign a CertCentral user as the verified EV contact. The New Contact option lets you enter information for a non-CertCentral account user. Use option 1 or 2.
If you haven't enabled this feature, you won't see any options. You can only add account users as verified EV contacts. Use Option 1.
To add an EV, CS, and EV CS verified contact, complete one of the options below. Note that you can add multiple verified contacts.
Option 1: Add an existing CertCentral account user as a verified contact
Option 2: Add a non-CertCentral account user as a verified contact
By default, the Allow non-CertCentral account users to be used as verified contacts feature is disabled for a CertCentral account. You can activate this feature on the Division Preferences page (Settings > Preferences). See Enable adding non-CertCentral account users as verified contacts.
After adding the verified contacts, you can add (check) or remove (uncheck) the types of certificates they can approve (EV / EV CS or CS).
After you've submitted a contact as a verified contact for a certificate type (EV/EV CS or CS), you can't remove them.
When you are finished, click Submit for Validation.
