5 Retrieving SSL Orders

This is a series of articles dedicated to demonstrating how to get acquainted with Openprovider SSL API methods. If you want to go the beginning of this guide, please navigate to the article "1 How to choose a product".

To get more information about our API in general, please use our documentation portal as your reference.

Using the previous method "4 Creating SSL Order" we created an order with the ID assigned: "1".
Using the current method we will retrieve all orders that are assigned with our reseller's account.
You can retrieve a full list of certificates you have in a system, either active or not, that have specific handle assigned or (and) by name pattern.
To get orders statuses updates immediately we would recommend you to use our webhook system.
Please check input values below.
