300 New Orders per account per 3 hours - Renewals


#1

Please can someone confirm if renewing a certificate counts toward this specific limit?

“For users of the ACME v2 API you can create a maximum of 300 New Orders per account per 3 hours.”

Thank you.

Yes - with ACME v2 you need to create an order specifying the identifiers of the certificate you are renewing in order to process the issuance of the certificate.

This is a rate limit we can add overrides for if you are a large institution/provider that requires issuance of >300 certificates in a three hour period.

Yes, we are a reasonably large provider and could hit this limit with combined new certificates and renewals. I’ve just completed and submitted the rate limiting form now.

Thank you for your reply and confirming this for us.
