Understanding CA connectors

Sectigo CA connectors integrate with SCM to manage certificates issued by AWS Private CA, DigiCert, Entrust, Google Cloud Certificate Authority Service (GCP CA Service), and Microsoft CA.

For more information about CA agnostic certificate lifecycle management, see Sectigo CA agnostic.

CA connectors can be managed on the Integrations  CA Connectors page.
