Credentials is you cloud service provider credentials, such as AWS, Azure, GCP, etc. You can obtain the credentials from the cloud service provider, you can follow the tutorial on left navigation bar to get yours.
There are two types of Cloud Resources:
- DNS Provider
- Cloud Resource(Consume Certificates)
CertX using the DNS Provider to obtain the certificate, and then sync the certificates to the Cloud Resource which are connect via Cert Flow.
Flow helps you manage your cert challenges and deliver the challenged certificates to you cloud resources.
e.g. you created a flow connects your domain
example.com with cdn for the
example.com domain, once you
created the domain, CertX will automatically obtain the certificate for you, and sync the certificate to the
cdn and enable the https for your CDN. And in the future, once the certificate is going to expire, CertX will
automatically renew the certificate for you.
