CertCentral Services API: Improved Submit for validation endpoint
In the DigiCert Services API, we updated the Submit for validation endpoint, enabling you to submit a domain for revalidation before it expires. Now, you can submit a domain for revalidation at any time, enabling you to complete the domain’s validation early and maintain seamless certificate issuance for the domain.
Note: If you order a certificate for the domain while the domain's revalidation is in a pending state, we use the domain's current validation to issue the certificate.
New request parameter: dcv_method
We also added a new request parameter, dcv_method*. Now, when you submit a domain for validation, you can change the DCV method used to prove control over the domain.
*Note: This new parameter is optional. If you leave the new parameter out of your request, we return a 204 response with no content. You will need to use the same DCV method used before to prove control over the domain.

CertCentral Services API: Improved order Document Signing - Organization (2000) and (5000) endpoints:
In the DigiCert Services API, we updated the Order document signing certificate endpoints for ordering Document Signing - Organization (2000) and (5000) certificates. We added a new parameter,
"use_org_as_common_name": true, enabling you to use the organization name as the common name on the certificate.
Note: Previously, your only option was to use the person's full name as the common name on your document signing organization certificates.
Now, if you want to use the organization name as the common name on your document signing organization certificate, add the
"use_org_as_common_name": true parameter to your certificate request. When we issue your certificate, the organization name will be the common name on the certificate.
