_acme-challenge txt records not returned

I have been using let's encrypt SSL certificates with GoDaddy for some time, using DNS verification.


This stopped working.  It appeared that _acme-challenge txt records were not returned.


It turned out that the records were entered with the wrong hostnames due to an API change.

And the GUI displayed them in a confusing fashion.



Re: _acme-challenge txt records not returned

This turned out to be a false alarm. Almost.


Undocumented API changes caused this problem.  The PUT command now requires an array in JSON, even when only a single element is provided.  This was not formerly the case.


Also, the PUT command now requires a domain-relative name; Formerly it did not.
