AWS Certificate Manager Private Certificate Authority
AWS Private Certificate Authority Documentation (API Version 2017-08-22)

GetCertificateAuthorityCsr

Retrieves the certificate signing request (CSR) for your private certificate authority (CA). The CSR is created when you call the CreateCertificateAuthority operation. Take the CSR to your on-premises X.509 infrastructure and sign it by using your root or a subordinate CA. Then import the signed certificate back into ACM PCA by calling the ImportCertificateAuthorityCertificate operation. The CSR is returned as a base64 PEM-encoded string.
