CertCentral: Domain validation management for all account types
We are happy to announce all CertCentral accounts now come with domain validation management by default. Now, all account types have access to these domain management features:
To use the new domain validation management features, go to the Domains page (in the left main menu, go to Certificates > Domains).
*For more information about submitting domains for prevalidation, see Domain prevalidation.
Note: Previously, only Enterprise and Partner accounts had the ability to submit domains for prevalidation and manage their domains' validations (domain control validation).
CertCentral: Domain Validation Scope settings apply to TLS orders only
On the Division Preferences page, under Domain Control Validation (DCV), we updated the Domain Validation Scope settings: Submit exact domain for validation and Submit base domains for validation. These updated settings allow you to define the default domain validation behavior when submitting new domains through the TLS certificate order process: EV, OV, and DV. These settings no longer apply to the domain prevalidation process.*
*How do these changes affect the domain prevalidation process?
When submitting domains for prevalidation, you can validate a domain at any level, base or any of the lower level subdomains: example.com, sub1.example.com, sub2.sub1.example.com, etc. See Domain prevalidation.
"Resend create certificate email" option for browser generated Code Signing certificate orders
We added a Resend create certificate email option to our Code Signing certificate process for orders where the certificate is generated in a supported browser: IE 11, Safari, Firefox 68, and portable Firefox.
Now, when a code signing certificate order has the status Emailed to Recipient, you can resend the certificate generation email.
For more information, see Resend "Create Your DigiCert Code Signing Certificate" email.
We fixed a bug preventing the Cancel Order option from appearing for Code Signing (CS) certificate orders with a status of Emailed to Recipient. On the Order details, page the Cancel Order option was missing from the Certificate Actions dropdown.
Note: To cancel the order, you had to contact our support team.
Now, to cancel a Code Signing (CS) certificate order with the status Emailed to Recipient, go to Order details page for the certificate and cancel the order.
For more information, Cancel a certificate order.
CertCentral: Edit organization details
We added a new feature to the organization management process in CertCentral—Edit organization details. Now, to update organization information, go to the Organization details page for that organization and click Edit Organization.
What you need to do before you edit an organization's details
Changing organization details for a validated organization negates all existing validation for the organization. This cannot be undone. This means DigiCert will need to validate the "updated/new" organization before we can issue certificates for it. Before you begin, make sure you understand and accept what happens when you change an organization's details.
For more information, see Edit organization details.
Industry standards compliance reminder
For public and private certificates, Certificate Authorities (CAs) don't accept abbreviations for these parts of an address in your certificate orders or organization pre-validation requests:
*This applies to organization and jurisdiction addresses.
We made it easier to define the domain validation scope for your account when submitting your domains for validation (pre-validation or via certificate orders).
On the Division Preferences page, we added two domain validation scope options:
To configure the domain validation scope for your account, in the sidebar menu, click Settings > Preferences. On the Division Preference page, expand Advanced Settings. In the Domain Control Validation (DCV) section, under Domain Validation Scope, you'll see the new settings.
We fixed a bug where we were limiting the maximum allowed number of SANS to 10 on Wildcard SSL certificate reissue and new certificate orders.
Now, when reissuing or ordering a new Wildcard SSL certificate, you can add up to 250 SANs.
