CTE (Customer Test Environment)

This article describes the procedures for CTE and operations it can handle.


What is CTE ?

CTE means Customer Test Environment.

It is a dummy RCP where you can do virtual (non-realtime) operations.

How to request a CTE account

In order to request a CTE Account, you must :

Send an email to Openprovider Support (support@openprovider.com)

The mail must include your Reseller ID of your live Openprovider Reseller Account.

Which products are supported in CTE ?

Openprovider CTE currently supports domain registrations and SSL Operations.


Regarding SSL Operations in CTE : 

Be aware due to CTE is a testing environment, some of the operations (like sending a real order to certificate authority) there are mocked-up and emulated.
SSL mostly differs from workflow applicable to the production environment.
Please note all API operations are possible but the order creation request is not sending to API.

So in that case, if you want to check different statuses of your order, please contact our support team at support@openprovider.com with indicating your Reseller ID, actual order and status you want to be set to.


Regarding API Operations in CTE : 

CTE API calls must use the api.cte.openprovider.eu domain.

Please note that the Suggest name domain is not supported in CTE.
