Installing certbot on SUSE Enterprise

Please fill out the fields below so we can help you better. Note: you must provide your domain name to get help. Domain names for issued certificates are all made public in Certificate Transparency logs (e.g. |, so withholding your domain name here does not increase secrecy, but only makes it harder for us to provide help.

I have tried to sign csr of my product provided using dns challenge.. it requested me to add dns text record, since dns in my orginazation is owned by other team in my organization..we are not able to get that added.. is their way to bypass this? or we have any other clients that can suite for my requirement.

When using DNS-01 challenges, it works best if you can automate the DNS updates. This is typically handled by using a provider that has an API plugin for Certbot. If you cannot dynamically update your DNS, you might request that the group managing your DNS add a CNAME at the label used by your DNS-01 challenge. The CNAME should be pointed at a zone you control.

See Delegation in the following documentation.


Well, that would be a BIG problem for Let's Encrypt if validation of a publicly trusted certificate could be bypassed!

Is your host reachable using port 80?

Also, please answer all the questions including the domain name. The questionnaire explicitely states you CANNOT get help without mentioning the domain name.
