Certificates statuses show which stage of the issuance process each certificate is in.
- Pending Validation
- Pending Issuance
- Pending Deployment
Once you issue a certificate, it should be in Pending Validation, but change to Active within five minutes. If you see any errors, you or your customer may need to take additional actions to validate the certificate.
If you deactivate a certificate, that certificate will go to a Deactivating and then an Inactive status.
When your zone becomes active, your custom certificate will deploy automatically (also moving to an Active status).
If your zone is already active when you upload a custom certificate, you will not see this status.
- Staging deployment: Similar to Pending Deployment, but for staging certificates.
- Staging active: Similar to Active, but for staging certificates.
- Deactivating: Your staging certificate is in the process of becoming Inactive.
- Inactive: Your staging certificate is not at the edge, but you can deploy it if needed.
