How to Link Your Microsoft Azure Key Vault to Your DigiCert CertCentral Account

To link your Azure Key Vault account to your DigiCert CertCentral® account so that you can begin ordering your SSL/TLS Certificates directly from Key Vault, you need to complete the following steps:

1. Set Up Your Microsoft Azure Key Vault Account

First, you must obtain and set up an Azure Key Vault account.

2. Activate Your DigiCert CertCentral Account

Second, activate your CertCentral account set up specifically for linking to your Azure Key Vault account.

3. Create an API Key in Your DigiCert CertCentral Account

Next, inside your CertCentral account, you need to create an API key that will be used to link your Azure Key Vault account to your CertCentral account.

4. Gather Additional CertCentral Information

Along with the API Key, you will need two more items from your DigiCert CertCentral account:

  • Account ID
  • Organization ID

Both these items are included in the "Your New CertCentral Account Has Been Created" email that you receive from DigiCert once your CertCentral account is activated.

You can also access this information from inside your CertCentral account.

5. Add a Credit Card in Your DigiCert CertCentral Account

Before you can begin ordering your DigiCert SSL/TLS Certificates, you need to add a credit card to your CertCentral account.

6. Order Your SSL/TLS Certificates from Your Microsoft Azure Key Vault Account

When ordering your SSL/TLS Certificates, you will use the credit card that you added to your DigiCert CertCentral account to pay for the certificates. You will also use the API Key, CertCentral account ID, and Organization AD with the PowerShell commands for ordering your DigiCert SSL/TLS Certificates.

7. Set Up Users in Your DigiCert CertCentral Account

Once your CertCentral account is activated, you can verify/edit your profile and add additional users to the account.
