Welcome to DigiCert's CertCentral 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.

Getting started

Before you can use a CertCentral API, you need a couple of things.

  • CertCentral account
  • API key
  • Ability to make API requests

Once you have these, you are ready to start using one of CertCentral's APIs.

About the 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.

Services API

Services API is a REST API that uses modern RESTful conventions. Use this API to manage all aspects of your CertCentral account. Learn more about Services API.

Finding help

Use the Glossary if you're ever unfamiliar with a specific term or want additional information about a parameter or variable.

If you encounter an error, chances are it's been documented. Check out the Errors section to locate the error and find a solution.
