Puppet 4.9 reference manual

Certificate

The certificate endpoint returns the certificate for the specified name, which might be either a standard certname or ca.

Under Puppet Server’s CA service, the environment parameter is ignored and can be omitted. Under a Rack or WEBrick Puppet master, environment is required and must be a valid environment, but it has no effect on the response.
