CertCentral Services API: New Unit order details and Cancel unit order endpoints
These endpoints allow you to get information about a unit order and to cancel a unit order.
Canceling unit orders:
If you manage a subaccount that uses units as its payment method, you can now use the Services API to do the following tasks:
CertCentral Services API: Improved Product list, Product limits, and Product info endpoints
To make it easier to find the available order validity periods for the digital certificate products in your account, we added new response parameters to the Product list, Product limits, and Product info endpoints.
These new response parameters allow you to view the default and customized order validity limits for each product in your account.
allowed_order_validity_years parameter returns a list of the supported order validity periods for each product in your account.
allowed_order_lifetimes parameter returns a list of the customized order validity limits for users with different division and user role assignments in your account.
allowed_order_validity_yearsparameter returns a list of the order validity periods that are available when you request the certificate product.
custom_order_expiration_date_allowedparameter returns a boolean value that describes whether you can set a custom order expiration date when you request the certificate product.
CertCentral Services API: Improved Subaccount order info endpoint
To make it easier to find information about the validity periods for subaccount orders, we added new response parameters to the Subaccount order info endpoint. These new response parameters allow you to see the order start date, the order end date, and whether the order is a Multi-year Plan.
"1"if the order is a Multi-year Plan.
order_valid_fromparameter returns the start date of the order validity period.
order_valid_tillparameter returns the end date of the order validity period.
Example response with new parameters
Customize the lifetime of your DigiCert Multi-year Plan
We are happy to announce you can now configure a custom lifetime for your Multi-year Plan (MyP) when requesting a TLS certificate in CertCentral. On the TLS certificate request forms, use the new Custom order validity option to customize the length of your TLS certificate order.
Note: Maximum TLS certificate validity is 397 days per industry best practices. See End of 2-Year public SSL/TLS certificates.
Custom Multi-year Plan order lengths can be set in days or by expiration date. Maximum order length is 2190 days (6 years). Minimum order length is 7 days.
Note: Custom orders start on the day we issue the certificate for the order. Order pricing is prorated to match the certificate selected and your custom order length.
To customize your MyP coverage
Updated product settings for public TLS certificates
To provide more control over your certificate order process, we updated the product settings for public TLS certificates. Now, you can determine the allowed Multi-year Plan order lengths users can select from when ordering a public TLS certificate.
On the TLS certificate's product settings page, use the Allowed validity periods option to determine what MyP order lengths appear on a TLS certificate request form: 1 Year, 2 Years, 3 Years, 4 Years, 5 Years, and 6 Years. Note that changes made to product settings apply to requests placed through CertCentral and the Services API.
Note: Previously, the Allowed validity periods option was used to determine the maximum certificate lifetime a user could select when ordering a public TLS certificate. However, with the industry move to 1-year certificate this option is no longer needed for certificate lengths. See End of 2-Year public SSL/TLS certificates.
To configure the allowed MyP order lengths for a TLS certificate
The next time a user orders a Secure Site OV certificate, they will only see the validity period lengths you selected on the request form.
Note: Setting limits on Multi-year Plan order lengths removes the custom validity option from your TLS certificate request forms.
CertCentral Domains page: Improved domains.csv report
On the Domains page, we improved the CSV report to make it easier to track OV and EV domain validation expiration dates and to view the previously used domain control validation (DCV) method.
The next time you download the CSV file, you will see we three new columns in the report:

When you open the domains.csv, you should see the new columns and information in your report.
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.
DigiCert Services API support for ICA certificate chain selection
In the DigiCert Services API, we made the following updates to support ICA selection in your API integrations:
ca_cert_idparameter in the body of your order request
Example flex certificate request:
For more information about using ICA selection in your API integrations, see OV/EV certificate lifecycle – (Optional) ICA selection.
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.
