The TBS INTERNET API allows you to automate various operations related to your certificates such as ordering, checking the status or renewing your your certificates. The TBS INTERNET API is based on XML-RPC.

Various examples using PHP, with the library phpxmlrpc 3 are provided.

A full API reference is also available and will be referred to multiple times in this documentation.

A second API, in REST mode, is available to list your pending orders and currently valid certificates: consult the documentation.

Mailing list

A mailing list is available to receive information about the development of the API and updates to its documentation. To subscribe, just send an email to the following address

How to proceed?

First of all, it is necessary to test the different functionalities of the API. You can do it with our SANDBOX. You will have to create an account on our SANDBOX and then create an API user. Here are the steps to follow:

  1. Go on this page

  2. Fill in the various fields and click on "Create account".

  3. The account must be activated manually by our team. Wait until you receive the activation confirmation email.

  4. Once the account is activated, go to this page to connect.

  5. In the left panel, "Administration" section, click on "Users".

  6. Click on "Add API user" and choose the username and password.

Once the API user is created, fill in the username and password chosen in your script/software/code.

Then, once you are ready to go into production, you must proceed in exactly the same way by connecting to your public account (French).
