Request parameters

Name Req/Opt Type Description
name_scope optional string The FQDN associated with the domain ID.
locale optional string Locale code for the language of the email.
Allowed values: See Glossary – Locale codes.
email_array optional array of strings Limit who receives verification DCV emails to addresses in this list.

Each email address must be a valid constructed email address for the domain or an address for a contact from the domain’s WHOIS or DNS TXT record. Other email addresses are ignored.

Your CertCentral account settings* configure the addresses you can choose from when limiting verification DCV email recipients. If none of the emails you provide are configured to receive verification DCV emails, or if you omit the email_array parameter from your request, DigiCert sends emails to all constructed email addresses, WHOIS contacts, and DNS TXT record emails for the domain.

*To view your account settings, in the left main menu, go to Settings > Preferences. Then, on the Preferences page, expand Advanced Settings, and look under Send Verification DCV Emails to.
