GleSYS DNS authentication plugin for Certbot

Project description

GleSYS DNS Authenticator for Certbot

This allows automatic completion of Certbot’s DNS01 challange for domains managed on GleSYS DNS.


$ pip install certbot-glesys


Create an API key with the following permissions:

  • domain:list
  • domain:listrecords
  • domain:addrecord
  • domain:deleterecord

Don’t forget to give access to the appropriate IP-address range. If you want to be able to run the client from anywhere, enter

To use the authenticator you need to provide some required options:

--certbot-glesys:auth-credentials (required)
INI file with user and password for your GlesSYS API user.

The credentials file must have the following format:

certbot_glesys:auth_user = CL00000
certbot_glesys:auth_password = apikeygoeshere

For safety reasons the file must not be world readable. You can solve this by running:

$ chmod 600 credentials.ini

Then you can run certbot using:

$ certbot certonly \
    --authenticator certbot-glesys:auth \
    --certbot-glesys:auth-credentials credentials.ini \

If you want to obtain a wildcard certificate you can use the --server flag and the domain -d *
