Synopsis

Invokes the UploadServerCertificate operation against AWS Identity and Access Management.

Syntax

Publish-IAMServerCertificate
-Path <String>
-ServerCertificateName <String>
-CertificateBody <String>
-PrivateKey <String>
-CertificateChain <String>
-Force <SwitchParameter>

Description

Uploads a server certificate entity for the AWS account. The server certificate entity includes a public key certificate, a private key, and an optional certificate chain, which should all be PEM-encoded. We recommend that you use AWS Certificate Manager to provision, manage, and deploy your server certificates. With ACM you can request a certificate, deploy it to AWS resources, and let ACM handle certificate renewals for you. Certificates provided by ACM are free. For more information about using ACM, see the AWS Certificate Manager User Guide. For more information about working with server certificates, including a list of AWS services that can use the server certificates that you manage with IAM, go to Working with Server Certificates in the IAM User Guide. For information about the number of server certificates you can upload, see Limitations on IAM Entities and Objects in the IAM User Guide. Because the body of the public key certificate, private key, and the certificate chain can be large, you should use POST rather than GET when calling UploadServerCertificate. For information about setting up signatures and authorization through the API, go to Signing AWS API Requests in the AWS General Reference. For general information about using the Query API with IAM, go to Calling the API by Making HTTP Query Requests in the IAM User Guide.

Parameters

-CertificateBody <String>
The contents of the public key certificate in PEM-encoded format.The regex pattern used to validate this parameter is a string of characters consisting of any printable ASCII character ranging from the space character (\u0020) through end of the ASCII character range as well as the printable characters in the Basic Latin and Latin-1 Supplement character set (through \u00FF). It also includes the special characters tab (\u0009), line feed (\u000A), and carriage return (\u000D).
Required?False
Position?3
Accept pipeline input?False
-CertificateChain <String>
The contents of the certificate chain. This is typically a concatenation of the PEM-encoded public key certificates of the chain.The regex pattern used to validate this parameter is a string of characters consisting of any printable ASCII character ranging from the space character (\u0020) through end of the ASCII character range as well as the printable characters in the Basic Latin and Latin-1 Supplement character set (through \u00FF). It also includes the special characters tab (\u0009), line feed (\u000A), and carriage return (\u000D).
Required?False
Position?5
Accept pipeline input?False
-Force <SwitchParameter>
This parameter overrides confirmation prompts to force the cmdlet to continue its operation. This parameter should always be used with caution.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?False
-Path <String>
The path for the server certificate. For more information about paths, see IAM Identifiers in the IAM User Guide.This parameter is optional. If it is not included, it defaults to a slash (/). This paramater allows (per its regex pattern) a string of characters consisting of either a forward slash (/) by itself or a string that must begin and end with forward slashes, containing any ASCII character from the ! (\u0021) thru the DEL character (\u007F), including most punctuation characters, digits, and upper and lowercased letters. If you are uploading a server certificate specifically for use with Amazon CloudFront distributions, you must specify a path using the --path option. The path must begin with /cloudfront and must include a trailing slash (for example, /cloudfront/test/).
Required?False
Position?1
Accept pipeline input?True (ByValue, ByPropertyName)
-PrivateKey <String>
The contents of the private key in PEM-encoded format.The regex pattern used to validate this parameter is a string of characters consisting of any printable ASCII character ranging from the space character (\u0020) through end of the ASCII character range as well as the printable characters in the Basic Latin and Latin-1 Supplement character set (through \u00FF). It also includes the special characters tab (\u0009), line feed (\u000A), and carriage return (\u000D).
Required?False
Position?4
Accept pipeline input?False
-ServerCertificateName <String>
The name for the server certificate. Do not include the path in this value. The name of the certificate cannot contain any spaces.This parameter allows (per its regex pattern) a string of characters consisting of upper and lowercase alphanumeric characters with no spaces. You can also include any of the following characters: =,.@-
Required?False
Position?2
Accept pipeline input?True (ByPropertyName)

Common Credential and Region Parameters

-AccessKey <String>
The AWS access key for the user account. This can be a temporary access key if the corresponding session token is supplied to the -SessionToken parameter.
Required? False
Position? Named
Accept pipeline input? False
-Credential <AWSCredentials>
An AWSCredentials object instance containing access and secret key information, and optionally a token for session-based credentials.
Required? False
Position? Named
Accept pipeline input? False
-ProfileLocation <String>

Used to specify the name and location of the ini-format credential file (shared with the AWS CLI and other AWS SDKs)

If this optional parameter is omitted this cmdlet will search the encrypted credential file used by the AWS SDK for .NET and AWS Toolkit for Visual Studio first. If the profile is not found then the cmdlet will search in the ini-format credential file at the default location: (user's home directory)\.aws\credentials. Note that the encrypted credential file is not supported on all platforms. It will be skipped when searching for profiles on Windows Nano Server, Mac, and Linux platforms.

If this parameter is specified then this cmdlet will only search the ini-format credential file at the location given.

As the current folder can vary in a shell or during script execution it is advised that you use specify a fully qualified path instead of a relative path.

Required? False
Position? Named
Accept pipeline input? False
-ProfileName <String>
The user-defined name of an AWS credentials or SAML-based role profile containing credential information. The profile is expected to be found in the secure credential file shared with the AWS SDK for .NET and AWS Toolkit for Visual Studio. You can also specify the name of a profile stored in the .ini-format credential file used with the AWS CLI and other AWS SDKs.
Required? False
Position? Named
Accept pipeline input? False
-NetworkCredential <PSCredential>
Used with SAML-based authentication when ProfileName references a SAML role profile. Contains the network credentials to be supplied during authentication with the configured identity provider's endpoint. This parameter is not required if the user's default network identity can or should be used during authentication.
Required? False
Position? Named
Accept pipeline input? False
-SecretKey <String>
The AWS secret key for the user account. This can be a temporary secret key if the corresponding session token is supplied to the -SessionToken parameter.
Required? False
Position? Named
Accept pipeline input? False
-SessionToken <String>
The session token if the access and secret keys are temporary session-based credentials.
Required? False
Position? Named
Accept pipeline input? False
-Region <String>
The system name of the AWS region in which the operation should be invoked. For example, us-east-1, eu-west-1 etc.
Required? False
Position? Named
Accept pipeline input? False
-EndpointUrl <String>

The endpoint to make the call against.

Note: This parameter is primarily for internal AWS use and is not required/should not be specified for normal usage. The cmdlets normally determine which endpoint to call based on the region specified to the -Region parameter or set as default in the shell (via Set-DefaultAWSRegion). Only specify this parameter if you must direct the call to a specific custom endpoint.

Required? False
Position? Named
Accept pipeline input? False

Inputs

You can pipe a String object to this cmdlet for the Path parameter.

Outputs

This cmdlet returns a ServerCertificateMetadata object. The service call response (type Amazon.IdentityManagement.Model.UploadServerCertificateResponse) can also be referenced from properties attached to the cmdlet entry in the $AWSHistory stack.

Examples

Example 1

PS C:\>Publish-IAMServerCertificate -ServerCertificateName MyTestCert -CertificateBody (Get-Content -Raw server.crt) -PrivateKey (Get-Content -Raw server.key)

Arn : arn:aws:iam::123456789012:server-certificate/MyTestCert
Expiration : 1/14/2018 9:52:36 AM
Path : /
ServerCertificateId : ASCAJIEXAMPLE7J7HQZYW
ServerCertificateName : MyTestCert
UploadDate : 4/21/2015 11:14:16 AM
This example uploads a new server certificate to the IAM account. The files containing the certificate body, the private key, and (optionally) the certificate chain must all be PEM encoded. Note that the parameters require the actual content of the files rather than the file names. You must use the -Raw switch parameter to successfully process the file contents.
