A wrapper for Certbot CLI

Project description

A wrapper for Certbot CLI

Executes certbot on your OS with the given parameters and performs the requests to Route53 to create the TXT record and validate back to Cerbot.

If validation is succeeded, Cerbot will issue the certificates and upload them in Amazon Certificate Manager. If the certificate for the given domain already exists, it will replace the certificates instead of creating a new ARN (this is usually what you want).

For obvious reasons, certbot needs access to public DNS zones. At Payconiq, our DNS is held by Production account but one might need certificates on Acceptance as well. In this case, the library accepts a profile to indicate in which account your DNS records are. How to choose a profile is documented directly on AWS.



  • Create certificates from Let’s Encrypt issuer based on DNS validation records
  • Creates TXT Record on Route53
  • Upload/Replace them to your ACM in your Amazon account
