Retiring or recovering a retired certificate

NOTE  This is a Premium feature available to select customers only. If you're interested in using this feature, please contact us.

Venafi Cloud lets you retire certificates that are no longer in use. Even if you retire a certificate, you can recover it later.

After you've located the certificate you want to retire, Venafi Cloud™ walks you through the retirement process.

  3. Select the certificates you want to retire, then click Retire.

  4. In Retire certificate, keep the checkbox selected if you do not want discovery to find the certificate again the next time it runs.
