6.2. Approving Certificate Requests

After the certificate request has been received, it needs to be approved by the RA agent. Approved requests are immediately sent to the CA to be issued.
To approve the certificate request:
  1. Open the RA agent services page.
  2. Click the List Requests link.
  3. Scroll to the bottom of the screen and add an optional note to the certificate request, and click Add Note.
  4. Click Approve to approve the request.
Once the request is approved, the method for delivering the approved certificate varies. For example, for RA agent requests, the CA immediately returns a PIN to use to claim the approved certificate. Other users may be able to access their certificate request in the end-entities page and retrieve the certificate immediately.
