Certificate Manager API C++ Client Library

An idiomatic C++ client library for the Certificate Manager API, a service to acquire and manage TLS (SSL) certificates for use with Cloud Load Balancing.

While this library is GA, please note that the Google Cloud C++ client libraries do not follow Semantic Versioning.


The following shows the code that you'll run in the google/cloud/certificatemanager/quickstart/ directory, which should give you a taste of the Certificate Manager API C++ client library API.

#include "google/cloud/certificatemanager/v1/certificate_manager_client.h"
#include "google/cloud/location.h"
#include <iostream>

int main(int argc, char* argv[]) try {
  if (argc != 2) {
    std::cerr << "Usage: " << argv[0] << " project-id\n";
    return 1;

  auto const location = google::cloud::Location(argv[1], "-");

  namespace certificatemanager = ::google::cloud::certificatemanager_v1;
  auto client = certificatemanager::CertificateManagerClient(

  for (auto c : client.ListCertificates(location.FullName())) {
    if (!c) throw std::move(c).status();
    std::cout << c->DebugString() << "\n";

  return 0;
} catch (google::cloud::Status const& status) {
  std::cerr << "google::cloud::Status thrown: " << status << "\n";
  return 1;
