For accounts that have more than a few certificates at risk of browser distrust, admins can quickly replace multiple certificates in batches. A bulk replacement request:
To replace distrusted certificates in bulk:
DigiCert is implementing a new organizational unit (OU) verification process for checking the OU included in your certificate requests. To help ensure the integrity and trust in your website, the new process checks the OU value, similar to how we currently check the organization (O) name in certificate requests.
No action is needed on your part, but you should expect short delays - an hour or less - in issuance for some certificates. When you get your certificate, also check to make sure it has the expected OU.
This change will apply to Public SSL/TLS certificates only. For more info on the validation change and how it affects your requests, visit New organizational unit (OU) validation process.
If the OU value is found in our validation whitelists, we instantly issue the certificate, pending any additional verification delays. Most OUs are approved and certificates are issued without any problems.
If the OU value is not found in our validation whitelists, we proactively review the OU value and issue the certificate, typically within an hour.
