I’m migrating our ACMEv1 client to ACMEv2.
We used a pre-authorization workflow in ACMEv1 which LE doesn’t implement in ACMEv2.
My workaround would be to create Orders we never intend to finalize when on-boarding new domains (for the purpose of getting a Challenge that we can complete prior to Ordering a combined cert with more domains).
My questions are:
- Will this (a large number of “Ready” status Orders) create a problem for Let’s Encrypt?
- Is there an associated rate limit that will be impacted by this? For clarity, we are planning on completing every challenge on all Orders, just leaving some in “Ready” status.
Assuming a large number of “Ready” status Orders does create a problem, would a potential solution be to create Orders with random unregistered domains to guarantee the Order goes into an Invalid status?
