Welcome to the DigiCert® API documentation!
This documentation assumes you have some experience working with APIs. If you've never worked with an API before, we recommend learning about the basics of APIs before using this service.
Before you can use a CertCentral API, you need a couple of things.
Once you have these, you are ready to start using one of CertCentral's APIs.
CertCentral APIs use URL-based entry points and require API keys be sent in the HTTP request header over port 443. However, each API uses a different technology when handling requests. To learn more, visit the reference documentation for each set of APIs:
If you're unfamiliar with a specific term or want additional information about a parameter or variable, use the Glossary.
For guides to managing certificate lifecycles and other common workflows, visit the Workflows section.
If you encounter an error, it is probably documented. Check out the Errors section to locate the error and find a solution.
