Creates a display name for a customer master key. An alias can be used to identify a key and should be unique. The console enforces a one-to-one mapping between the alias and a key. An alias name can contain only alphanumeric characters, forward slashes (/), underscores (_), and dashes (-). An alias must start with the word "alias" followed by a forward slash (alias/). An alias that begins with "aws" after the forward slash (alias/aws...) is reserved by Amazon Web Services (AWS).
The alias and the key it is mapped to must be in the same AWS account and the same region.
To map an alias to a different key, call UpdateAlias.
For PCL this operation is only available in asynchronous form. Please refer to CreateAliasAsync.
public virtual CreateAliasResponse CreateAlias( String aliasName, String targetKeyId )
String that contains the display name. The name must start with the word "alias" followed by a forward slash (alias/). Aliases that begin with "alias/AWS" are reserved.
An identifier of the key for which you are creating the alias. This value cannot be another alias but can be a globally unique identifier or a fully specified ARN to a key. Key ARN Example - arn:aws:kms:us-east-1:123456789012:key/12345678-1234-1234-1234-123456789012 Globally Unique Key ID Example - 12345678-1234-1234-1234-123456789012
