Loopia DNS authentication plugin for Certbot

Project description

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


$ pip install certbot-loopia


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

--certbot-loopia:auth-user <user> (required)
API username for Loopia.
--certbot-loopia:auth-password <password> (required)
API password for Loopia.

There are also some optional arguments:

--certbot-loopia:auth-time-limit <time>
Time limit for local verification. This is the maximum time the authenticator will try to self-verify before declaring that the DNS update was unsuccessful. Default: 30m.
--certbot-loopia:auth-time-delay <time>
Time delay before first trying to self-verify the result of authentication. It is recommended to have a delay of at least 30 seconds to prevent the DNS server from caching that there are no TXT records for the challenge subdomain. Default: 1m.
--certbot-loopia:auth-retry-interval <time>
How frequently to retry self-verification. This is time past since the start of the previous verification. It is not recommended to choose values smaller than 10 seconds. Default: 30s.

The format of <time> is AdBhCmDs where: A``is days, ``B``is hours, ``C``is minutes and ``D is seconds. Note that A, B, C and D must be integers. The units d, h and m are required while s is optional. Any value-unit pair may be omitted, but they must be ordered from most to least significant unit. Examples of valid <time> expressions are:

  • 42 or 42s for 42 seconds
  • 1m30s or 1m30 for 1.5 minutes
  • 1h for 1 hour
  • 1d12h for 1.5 days

Known issues

  • Due to caching on Loopia’s side it can take up to 15 minutes before changes are visible. The plugin will by default retry self-verification for at least 30 minutes before sending the actual verification request to the ACME server.
