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.

New product settings for flexible certificates
To provide more control over your certificate ordering process, we added two new product settings to our flexible certificate offerings:
Now, you can limit the number of SANs included on a flexible OV or EV certificate order. Additionally, you can prevent users from including wildcard domains in their flexible OV certificate orders.
To configure flexible certificate product settings, in the left main menu, go to Settings > Product Settings.
Flexible OV and EV certificates
These more flexible SSL/TLS certificates make it easier to get the certificate to fit your needs: Basic OV, Basic EV, Secure Site OV, and Secure Site EV. They will replace the old Basic and Secure Site products.
To activate any of these new certificates for your CertCentral account, contact your account manager or our Support team.
