Checking a certificate status

You can use the certificaterequests function to show the CA Account approval status. TLS Protect Cloud reports one of the following statuses:

  • NEW: The request was received and saved from the end user.
  • PENDING: The request was successfully submitted to the CA account.
  • REQUESTED: The CA account acknowledged the receipt of the certificate request.
  • ISSUED: The CA account successfully issued the certificate.
  • REJECTED: The CA account rejected the certificate request.
  • CANCELLED: The certificate request was canceled.

  2. Use the certificaterequests function and the certificate request ID. For additional help, use the parameter descriptions from Dev Central. For example:

  3. In the JSON response, review the Status field. For example:
