General workflow for VaaS developers¶
You can use the VaaS API to perform routine tasks for managing certificates. When you register for an account, the default system configuration will allow you to obtain test certificates that are issued from a non-publicly trusted Certification Authority. You can use the default system configuration and the REST API to learn how to use VaaS. When you are ready, follow this basic workflow to manage your own certificates.
- Request certificates. If you are requesting test certificates, the default system configuration restricts the domains that may be requested for test certificates.
- Check the status of a certificate.
- Download the certificate as a Base64 PEM encoded certificate or as a binary DER file.
- Search for information about certificates.
