The Ruby client for the official Digicert API.

Installation

Add this line to your application's Gemfile:

gem "digicert"

And then execute:

bundle install

Or install it yourself as:

gem install digicert

Configure

Once you have your API key then you can configure it by adding an initializer with the following code

Digicert.configure do |config|
  config.api_key = "SECRET_DEV_API_KEY"

  # Default response type is `object`, but you can configure it if
  # necessary, and all the further response will be return as config
  # supported options are `object` and `hash`.
  #
  # config.response_type = :object
end

Or

Digicert.configuration.api_key = "SECRET_DEV_API_KEY"

Usage

Container

Container is an Operational Division used to model your organizational structure. The features of the container you create are determined by its Container Template.

List Containers

Use this interface to retrieve a list of existing containers.

Note: This is an undocumented endpoint of the DigiCert Services API.

Digicert::Container.all

Create a Container

Use this interface to create new container, and this interface also expects us to provide parent_container along with the others attributes as container_id.

Digicert::Container.create(
  container_id: 123_456_789,
  template_id: 5,
  name: "History Department",
  description: "History, Civ, Ancient Languages",

  user: {
    first_name: "Awesome",
    last_name: "User",
    email: "awesomeuser@example.com",
    username: "awesomeuser@example.com",
    access_roles: [{ id: 1 }],
  },
)

View a Container

Information about a specific container can be retrieved through this interface, including its name, description, template, and parent container id.

Digicert::Container.fetch(container_id)

Container Template

)

Request Management

List certificate requests

Use this interface to retrieve a list of certificate requests.

Digicert::CertificateRequest.all

Certificate Request details

Use this interface to retrieve the details for a certificate request.

Digicert::CertificateRequest.fetch(request_id)

Update Request Status

Use this interface to update the status of a previously submitted certificate request.

Digicert::CertificateRequest.update(
  request_id, status: "approved", processor_comment: "Your domain is approved",
)

Order Management

View a Certificate Order

Use this interface to retrieve a certificate order and the response includes all the order attributes along with a certificate in it.

Digicert::Order.fetch(order_id)

List Certificate Orders

Use this interface to retrieve a list of all certificate orders.

Digicert::Order.all

List of Email Validations

Use this interface to view the status of all emails that require validation on a client certificate order.

Digicert::EmailValidation.all(order_id: order_id)

# If you prefer then there is an alternative alias method
# on the order class, you can invoke that on any of its
# instances. Usages
#
order = Digicert::Order.find(order_id)
order.email_validations

Validate an Email Address

Use this interface to verify control of an email address, using an email address/token pair.

Digicert::EmailValidation.valid?(token: token, email: email)
# => true or false

Reissue a Certificate Order

Use this interface to reissue a certificate order. A reissue replaces the existing certificate with a new one that has different information such as common name, CSR, etc. The simplest interface to reissue an update an existing order is

order = Digicert::Order.find(order_id)
order.reissue

# Alternative and prefereed in most case
Digicert::OrderReissuer.create(order_id: order_id)

And if there are some updated information like csr, common_name or etc then you can use the same interface but pass the :certificate option. Please remember if any required fields are missing then it will use the data that already exists for that order.

Digicert::OrderReissuer.create(
  order: order_id,
  certificate: {
    common_name: certificate_common_name,
    dns_names: [certificate_dns_name],
    csr: certificate_csr,
    signature_hash: certificate_signature_hash,
    server_platform: { id: certificate_server_platform_id },
  }
)

Duplicate a Certificate Order

Use this interface to request a duplicate certificate for an order. A duplicate shares the expiration date as the existing certificate and is identical with the exception of the CSR and a possible change in the server platform and signature hash. The common name and sans need to be the same as the original order.

Digicert::OrderDuplicator.create(
  order: order_id,
  certificate: {
    common_name: certificate_common_name,
    dns_names: [certificate_dns_name],
    csr: certificate_csr,
    signature_hash: certificate_signature_hash,
    server_platform: { id: certificate_server_platform_id },
  }
)

Find a Duplicate Certificate

As of now, the Digicert API, does not have an easier way to find a duplicate certificate, as the certificate duplication returns existing order_id with a request node which only has an id.

So to find out a duplicate certificate, we need to retrieve the details for that specific request and from that response retrieve the date_created for the duplicate certificate and then use that date_created to find out the correct certificate from the duplications of that specific order.

This requires lots of work, so this following interface will do all of its underlying tasks, and all we need to do is pass the requests id that we will have form the certificate duplication.

# Duplicate an existing certificate order
#
order = Digicert::Order.find(order_id)
duplicate_order = order.duplicate

# Use the request id to find out the certificate
#
request_id = duplicate_order.requests.first.id
Digicert::DuplicateCertificateFinder.find_by(request_id: request_id)

List Duplicate Certificates

Use this interface to view all duplicate certificates for an order.

Digicert::DuplicateCertificate.all(order_id: order_id)

# Alternative interface for duplicate certificates
order = Digicert::Order.find(order_id)
order.duplicate_certificates

Cancel a Certificate Order

Use this interface to update the status of an order. Currently this endpoint only allows updating the status to 'CANCELED'

order = Digicert::Order.find(order_id)
order.cancel(note: "Cancellation note")

# Or use the actual interface for more control
Digicert::OrderCancellation.create(
  order_id: order_id, status: "CANCELED", note: "your_note", send_emails: true,
)

Reports

Expiring Orders

Use this interface to retrieve the number of orders that have certificates expiring within 90, 60, and 30 days. The number of orders that have already expired certificates within the last 7 days is also returned.

Digicert::ExpiringOrder.all(container_id: container_id)

Certificate Management

Download a Certificate

This request will return an SSL Certificate file from an order. By default, it uses the platform specified by the order.

# Fetch the certficate details that includes a http status code
# and the file content in the `#body`, so you can choose if you
# want to write it to your filesystem or directly upload it to
# your host, and the contents it returns is `zip` archieve.
#
certificate = Digicert::CertificateDownloader.fetch(certificate_id, **attributes)

# write to content to somewhere in your filesystem.
#
File.write("path_to_file_system/certificate.zip", certificate.body)

# Alaternative to fetch it through certificate instance
#
certificate = Digicert::Certificate.find(certificate_id)
certificate_content_object = certificate.download

Additionally, if you want the gem to handle the file writing then it also provides another helper interface fetch_to_path, and that will fetch the file content and write the content to supplied path.

Digicert::CertificateDownloader.fetch_to_path(
  certificate_id,
  ext: "zip",
  path: File.expand_path("./file/download/path"),
  **other_attributes_hash_like_platform_or_format,
)

# Alternative through a certificate instance
#
certificate = Digicert::Certificate.find(certificate_id)
certificate.download_to_path(path: "file/path", ext: "zip", format: "zip")

Download a Certificate By Format

This interface will return an SSL Certificate file from an order. The certificate will be return in the format you specify, but one thing to remember the certificate will be archived as zip along with the instructions, so you need to write that as zip archive.

Digicert::CertificateDownloader.fetch_by_format(
  certificate_id, format: format,
)

# Alternative using the certificate instance
#
certificate = Digicert::Certificate.find(certificate_id)
certificate_content_object = certificate.download(format: format)

Download a Certificate By Platform

This interface will return an SSL Certificate file from an order using the platform specified.

certificate = Digicert::CertificateDownloader.fetch_by_platform(
  certificate_id, platform: "apache",
)

# Alternative using the certificate instance
#
certificate = Digicert::Certificate.find(certificate_id)
certificate_content_object = certificate.download(platform: "apache")

Download a Certificate content

This interface will fetch a SSL Certificate and extract all of its subsidiary certificates content and return as a hash with certificate, root_certificate and intermediate_certificate keys.

Digicert::CertificateDownloader.fetch_content(certificate_id)

# Alternative using certificate instance
#
certificate = Digicert::Certificate.find(certificate_id)
certificate.download_content

Revoke a Certificate

This interface will revoke a previously issued SSL Certificate.

Digicert::Certificate.revoke(certificate_id, comments: "Your comment")
