CSR field "Organization Unit" no longer applicable

CSR field "Organization Unit" no longer applicable

As of 20 July 2022, certificate requests in AutoDNS and SSL Manager can no longer be accepted if the Organization Unit (OU) field is filled. The control is performed during the CSR check; an error message may appear. Please note that renews are also affected. TLS/SSL certificates issued by 20 July 2022, with an entry in the OU field will still be classified as trustworthy after this deadline.

The reason: According to CAB/Forum guidelines, the OU field is being eliminated industry-wide because it would be the only non-validated field in TLS/SSL certificates that could be used in a misleading manner.
