Order is sometimes ready before doing authz/challenge


I have been using the Certes .NET client to request certificates for some time now with a high level of success. The past few days I have been testing some aspects of our code again and I can see that sometimes when I create a new Order the status is immediately Ready. The Authorization allocated to it will already be Valid also. The Challenge I then create goes from Pending to Valid after validation as expected. Point being it is working okay (hence why I'm not providing much information regarding server etc).

I just want to know what scenario results in a NEW Order's status starting as Ready? Doing a few tests I think it seems to happen when I create a new Order for a host name I have recently done. I'm not willing to say that with full confidence though. I've looked through the ACME Protocol and I can't see anything that stands out.

Many thanks,

Valid authorizations are cached for 30 days (currently) and can indeed be reused.



Aha! That's great news. Thanks for clearing that up, it's very much appreciated.
