This week’s release presses “play” on features that have been paused for a while during our integration of DigiCert and Symantec Website Security systems.
First things first: Thank you for your patience! As a reward for sticking with us, we’re treating you to something that you’ve requested for quite some time.
We decided that flexibility is the best policy – when issuing test certificates, you can now choose the “ValidityEndDate” value, and the system respects that value. With a new parameter you can now issue certificates with any lifetime from 7 to 825 days. Reach out to your Account Manager or Sales Engineer if you want to make use of the new parameter. Note that this feature is only available in the pilot environment.
Ever experience “would’ve, could’ve, should’ve” about a certificate’s FQDN? For example, after ordering a single-domain certificate you realize that you wanted to add SANs to make it cover multiple domains or subdomains. Now you can do that by reissuing single domain certificates using our “Add SANs” feature.
Second-guesses and oopses, be gone: we’ve rolled out this nicety for our Symantec and Thawte certificates, and it will be implemented with GeoTrust products in the upcoming months.
In authentication reports within the partner portal, we have removed a column, which, at times, could show incorrect information about a certificate’s validation status. That column is now gone, and hopefully so is the confusion.
As mentioned in my previous blog entry, our next release for partners will come in a bit more than two weeks from now on 31 May. Look for:
We will continue to cover more updates and other insights about what we are working on here on the Partner Blog.
As always, your feedback is appreciated.
