CertCentral Services API: Auto-reissue support for Multi-year Plans
We are happy to announce that the CertCentral Services API now supports automatic certificate reissue requests (auto-reissue) for Multi-year Plans. The auto-reissue feature makes it easier to maintain SSL/TLS coverage on your Multi-year Plans.
You can enable auto-reissue for individual orders in your CertCentral account. When auto-reissue is enabled, we automatically create and submit a certificate reissue request 30 days before the most recently issued certificate on the order expires.
Enable auto-reissue for a new order
To give you control over the auto-reissue setting for new Multi-year Plans, we added a new request parameter to the endpoints for ordering DV, OV, and EV TLS/SSL certificates:
By default, auto-reissue is disabled for all orders. To enable auto-reissue when you request a new Multi-year Plan, set the value of the
auto_reissue parameter to
1 in the body of your request.
Example request body:
Note: In new order requests, we ignore the
auto_reissue parameter if:
Update auto-reissue setting for existing orders
To give you control over the auto-reissue setting for existing Multi-year Plans, we added a new endpoint: Update auto-reissue settings. Use this endpoint to enable or disable the auto-reissue setting for an order.
Get auto-reissue setting for an existing order
To help you track the auto-reissue setting for existing certificate orders, we added a new response parameter to the Order info endpoint:
auto_reissue parameter returns the current auto-reissue setting for the order.

CertCentral Services API: Documentation updates
We're pleased to announce the following updates to the documentation for the CertCentral Services API:
emergency_emailsrequest parameter to the documentation for the Update account emails endpoint. Use this parameter to update the email addresses that receive emergency notifications from DigiCert.
Example Update account emails request body:
default_intermediateresponse parameters to the documentation for the Product info endpoint.
validation_typeparameter to get the validation type for a given product.
allowed_ca_certsparameter to get information about the ICA certificates you can select when you order a given product. *
default_intermediateparameter to get the ID of the default ICA for a given product. *
Example Product info response data:
* Note: The Product info endpoint only returns the
default_intermediates parameters for products that support ICA selection. For public SSL certificates that support ICA selection (OV and EV flex certificates), these parameters are only returned if ICA selection is enabled for the account. Additionally, the
default_intermediates parameter is only returned if an administrator has customized a product setting for a division or user role in the account. For more information, see ICA certificate chain option for public OV and EV flex certificates.
ICA certificate chain selection for public OV and EV flex certificates
We are happy to announce that public OV and EV certificates with flex capabilities now support Intermediate CA certificate chain selection.
You can add an option to your CertCentral account that enables you to control which DigiCert ICA certificate chain issues your public OV and EV "flex" certificates.
This option allows you to:
Configure ICA certificate chain selection
To enable ICA selection for your account, contact your account manager or our Support team. Then, in your CertCentral account, on the Product Settings page (in the left main menu, go to Settings > Product Settings), configure the default and allowed intermediates for each type of OV and EV flex certificate.
For more information and step-by-step instructions, see ICA certificate chain option for public OV and EV flex certificates.
