When creating a csr request EXOS adds a csr- prefix to the common name.

You are about to be asked to enter information that will be incorporated into your certificate request.
What you are about to enter is what is called a Distinguished Name or a DN.
For some fields there will be a default value in .
If you enter '.' the field will be left blank.
After the request is generated you can see the common name is prefixed with "csr-" when you decode the request.
