When i try to generate a certificate for one of our customers, it is truncating the certifcate name.
I understand this is supposed to only be used for “book-keeping”, but the system we have built around certbot uses this certificate name to reverse look-up our customer. It’s a nasty bug that would be difficult to work around.
A stripped down version of the command used:
$ certbot certonly --cert-name 'example-site' -d 'subdomain.example.com'
The generation process works just fine, but the name field in
certbot certificates is then truncated to just
$ certbot --version certbot 0.19.0
On Fedora 25 installed from the repos.
I’ve gone through the open github issues (searching for
--cert-name does not help with filtering). And the “Your topic is similar to…” does not contain anything like the problem.
Is this a known bug?
Is this a new bug? Should i open a GH issue?
