Plug-ins and APIs

GlobalSign APIs

GlobalSign has developed a number of APIs (Application Programming Interfaces) designed for Partners to automate the ordering and delivery of customer's digital certificates. Using an API will help you create a robust and scalable business as a GlobalSign partner.

API Basics

GlobalSign API libraries exist to automate a number of critical functions you would typically need to perform via the web-based GlobalSign Certificate Center (GCC):

Placing a new Certificate order
Querying the order status of a Certificate order
Receiving an issued Certificate

The APIs allow you to integrate your own Control Panels, ordering, purchasing and billing systems to automate part of, or all of, the workflow with your customers. The APIs help you error check in real-time and reduce the time you may spend dealing directly with customer orders. APIs mean automation.


The XML API performs practically every function available through GCC. It allows the deepest and most comprehensive integration into your own systems, such as your customer facing Control Panel or internal purchasing and management systems. The XML API connects your systems to GlobalSign, giving real time CSR parsing, error checking and allows full querying on order status and Certificate delivery via HTTPS stream or directly to end customers by Partner branded email.
