  2. In the Action column, click the (⁝) icon to view all available options:
    • Change certificate: change who is responsible for the certificate, and users who can access and use the certificate.
    • Request details: view your certificate information.
    • Renew certificate: depending on the user's permission, it is possible to request and sign or just make the request.
    • Certificate Renewal history: view renewal history, who, and when.
    • Disable: deactivate the certificate and consequently suspend the billing and operation.
      The Accounts column on this screen shows how many accounts are linked to a single certificate. We strongly recommend reviewing this setting if your discovery reveals more than one account. Ideally, the certificate should have a single account to maintain the integrity of the cloud infrastructure.
  3. By clicking on the Detail icon you can view different information about your certificate, and download the key to use it on various sites and applications.
