certificate request polling

Use certificate request polling to set the polling interval and the maximum number of attempts to query certificate request status.

Use undo certificate request polling to restore the defaults.


certificate request polling { count count | interval interval }

undo certificate request polling { count | interval }


The polling interval is 20 minutes, and the maximum number of attempts is 50.

Usage guidelines

After a PKI entity submits a certificate request, it might take the CA server a while to issue the certificate if the CA administrator must manually approve the certificate request. During this period, the PKI entity periodically queries the CA server for the certificate request status. The periodic query operation stops until the PKI entity obtains the certificate or the maximum number of query attempts is reached. If the maximum number of query attempts is reached, the certificate request fails.

If the CA server automatically approves certificate requests, the PKI entity can obtain the certificate immediately after it submits a certificate request. In this case, the PKI entity does not send queries to the CA server.


# Set the polling interval to 15 minutes, and the maximum number of query attempts to 40.
