Auto-renewal of SSL certificates on Bluemix apps having custom domains

We have deployed 2 of our applications out of 13 on Bluemix which are using custom domains. Also we have recently secured them by uploading SSL certificates by generating them from bluemix-letsencrypt open source project. (

we faced issues with routes while generating & uploading certs on both the apps simultaneously. we also reported this to the support team. But since this was a one time process, we tried generating & uploading certs on apps one by one. Now as the certs are uploaded & are valid for a time duration of 90 days, we are looking for a process through which we can automate this task instead of doing it manually every time & for every app.

So we are seeking for a feature to be added through which we can automatically renew our certs on apps.

It will add a value for all the users using custom domains for their applications so that they don't have to manually do this process & keep a track of validity of certs every time & can take the benefit out of automated renewal process.

As the number of app deployments are increasing day by day for us as well as for every user, this will turn out to be a very beneficial feature.
