What Can I Do If My Test Certificate Quota Is Used Up?

The following provides some methods to handle issues you may encounter when you apply for a test certificate:

  • The Create Test Certificate button on the CCM console is grayed out, and you cannot create a free DigiCert DV (Basic) certificate.
  • When you purchase a DigiCert DV (Basic) single-domain certificate (free certificate) on the CCM console, a message is displayed indicating that the number of free certificates has reached the maximum and no more free certificates can be added.

Test Certificate Quota

Each Huawei Cloud account has a quota of 20 test SSL certificates. If this quota is used up, follow the procedure shown in Figure 1. You can make your choice to meet your needs.

Figure 1 Quota description
  • If you still want to use more test certificates, you can purchase a DigiCert DV (basic) single-domain certificate package to increase the quota of DigiCert DV (basic) single-domain certificates.

    Follow the procedure below to increase the quota.

  • If you want to use a paid certificate, buy one on the purchase page.

Restrictions on Purchasing and Using a Single-domain Certificate Package

  • The DigiCert DV (basic) single-domain certificate package is billed at an additional cost. This means if you have applied for the quota of 20 free certificates under your account for free, you will be billed for this package.
  • You will receive the invoice with the amount equal to how much you pay when you purchase a DigiCert DV (basic) single-domain certificate package. No separate invoice will be issued for the free certificates you apply for using the DigiCert DV (basic) single-domain certificate package.
  • Once purchased, the DigiCert DV (basic) single-domain certificate package cannot be refunded, returned, or replaced.


This procedure is intended for test certificates. For paid certificates, see Purchasing an SSL Certificate.
