AWS::IAM::ServerCertificate - AWS CloudFormation

AWS::IAM::ServerCertificate

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, see Working with server certificates in the IAM User Guide. This topic includes a list of AWS services that can use the server certificates that you manage with IAM.

For information about the number of server certificates you can upload, see IAM and STS quotas in the IAM User Guide.

Note

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, see Signing AWS API requests in the AWS General Reference. For general information about using the Query API with IAM, see Calling the API by making HTTP query requests in the IAM User Guide.

Syntax

To declare this entity in your AWS CloudFormation template, use the following syntax:

JSON

{ "Type" : "AWS::IAM::ServerCertificate", "Properties" : { "CertificateBody" : String, "CertificateChain" : String, "Path" : String, "PrivateKey" : String, "ServerCertificateName" : String, "Tags" : [ Tag, ... ] } }

YAML

Type: AWS::IAM::ServerCertificate Properties: CertificateBody: String CertificateChain: String Path: String PrivateKey: String ServerCertificateName: String Tags: - Tag

Properties

CertificateBody

The contents of the public key certificate.

Required: No

Type: String

Minimum: 1

Maximum: 16384

Pattern: [\u0009\u000A\u000D\u0020-\u00FF]+

Update requires: Replacement

CertificateChain

The contents of the public key certificate chain.

Required: No

Type: String

Minimum: 1

Maximum: 2097152

Pattern: [\u0009\u000A\u000D\u0020-\u00FF]+

Path

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 parameter allows (through 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. In addition, it can contain any ASCII character from the ! (\u0021) through the DEL character (\u007F), including most punctuation characters, digits, and upper and lowercased letters.

Note

If you are uploading a server certificate specifically for use with Amazon CloudFront distributions, you must specify a path using the path parameter. The path must begin with /cloudfront and must include a trailing slash (for example, /cloudfront/test/).

Required: No

Type: String

Minimum: 1

Maximum: 512

Pattern: (\u002F)|(\u002F[\u0021-\u007F]+\u002F)

Update requires: No interruption

PrivateKey

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 the following:

  • Any printable ASCII character ranging from the space character (\u0020) through the end of the ASCII character range

  • The printable characters in the Basic Latin and Latin-1 Supplement character set (through \u00FF)

  • The special characters tab (\u0009), line feed (\u000A), and carriage return (\u000D)

Required: No

Type: String

Minimum: 1

Maximum: 16384

Pattern: [\u0009\u000A\u000D\u0020-\u00FF]+

Update requires: Replacement

ServerCertificateName

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 (through 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: No

Type: String

Minimum: 1

Maximum: 128

Pattern: [\w+=,.@-]+

Update requires: Replacement

Tags

A list of tags that are attached to the server certificate. For more information about tagging, see Tagging IAM resources in the IAM User Guide.

Required: No

Type: List of Tag

Maximum: 50

Update requires: No interruption

Return values

Ref

When you pass the logical ID of this resource to the intrinsic Ref function, Ref returns the ServerCertificateName.

For more information about using the Ref function, see Ref.

Fn::GetAtt

The Fn::GetAtt intrinsic function returns a value for a specified attribute of this type. The following are the available attributes and sample return values.

For more information about using the Fn::GetAtt intrinsic function, see Fn::GetAtt.

Arn

Returns the Amazon Resource Name (ARN) for the specified AWS::IAM::ServerCertificate resource.
