Updating a Certificate permalink

On CDN Pro, each certificate is versioned, and each version is not editable once saved. You can deploy each version independently to the staging and production environments. There can be only one version deployed in each environment at any time. Deploying a new version replaces the old one automatically. Therefore, if you need to update an expiring certificate in production, create a new version of that certificate and deploy to production to replace the old one. All properties using the old certificate in production pick up the new version automatically.

CDN Pro sends an email notification when a certificate used in production is close to its expiration date. For convenience, CDN Pro supports certificate auto-renewal through Let's Encrypt, so you never need to worry about the expiration of your certificates. If you prefer to renew your certificates manually, perform one of the following procedures.
