Need some clarifications about importing owned SSL

Hello everyone, can someone give me a hand with installing the SSL issued by SectigoLimited certificate, star certificate applicable to .example(.)com. Obviously we intend to use it on any subdomain we will create under our DNS zone…

I have imported it into Cloudflare under Edge Certificates and it says Holding deployment. No idea what that means, and its been 2 days since I asked on support which supposedly have under 2 hours median response time. So what Holding deployment actually means?

Secondly, I am supposed to create a CAA record under DNS zone. My question is which option to pick under Tag, “Only allow specific hostnames” or “Only allow wildcards”. If anyone have a link to an explanation please share since the 6 steps in knowledge base doesn’t explain anything.
The other question, is regarding CA Domain name, which should be “SectigoLimited” or “”?

Thanks in advance

Hello Anjana
The domain is
There is no issue, all I wanted to know which type should I choose for wildcard certificate when creating CAA records before changing the nameservers… I presume Holding deployment means that the changes haven’t been done yet…
