The problem is likely that you are using an old version of Dogtag. The Dogtag python client that supports cert issuance is only on Dogtag 10. I know that is available on Fedora 22 or RHEL 7.X (Centos 7.X).

If you are looking for Centos builds, Dogtag 10.x is available in various copr builds. You need pki-ca and pki-kra. ( includes Dogtag 10.2.X builds.

As these builds are in RHEL 7.1, they should be released in the Centos 7.1 repos eventually

For more recent builds -- ie. to get the subca feature, I've created Centos 7 builds for Dogtag 10.3. These are ongoing development builds. Dogtag 10.3 is expected to be released with Fedora 24. (
