Listing certificates managed by ACM - AWS Certificate Manager

Listing certificates managed by ACM

You can use the ACM console or AWS CLI to list the certificates managed by ACM. The console can list up to 500 certificates in a page, and the CLI up to 1000.

To list your certificates using the console
  1. Open the ACM console at

  2. Review the information in the certificate list. You can navigate through multiple pages of certificates using the page numbers at upper-right. Each certificate occupies a row with the following columns displayed by default for each certificate:

  • Domain name – The fully qualified domain name (FQDN) for the certificate.

  • Type – The type of certificate. Possible values are: Amazon issued | Private | Imported

  • Status – Certificate status. Possible values are: Pending validation | Issued | Inactive | Expired | Revoked | Failed | Validation timed out

  • In use? – Whether the ACM certificate is actively associated with an AWS service such as Elastic Load Balancing or CloudFront. The value can be No or Yes.

  • Renewal eligibility – Whether the certificate can be renewed automatically by ACM when it approaches expiration. Possible values are: Eligible | Ineligible. For eligibility rules, see Managed renewal for ACM certificates.

By choosing the settings icon in the upper-right corner of the console, you can customize the number of certificates shown on a page, specify the line-wrapping behavior of cell contents, and display additional information fields. The following optional fields are available:

  • Additional domain names – One or more domain names (subject alternative names) included in the certificate.

  • Requested at – The time when ACM requested the certificate.

  • Issued at – The time when the certificate was issued. This information is available only for Amazon-issued certificates, not for imports.

  • Not before – The time before which the certificate is not valid.

  • Not after – The time after which the certificate is not valid.

  • Revoked at – For revoked certificates, the time of the revocation.

  • Name tag – The value of a tag on this certificate called Name, if such a tag exists.

  • Renewal status – Status of the requested renewal of a certificate. This field is displayed and has a value only when renewal was requested. Possible values are: Pending automatic renewal | Pending validation | Success | Failure.


    It can take up to several hours for changes to the certificate status to become available. If a problem is encountered, a certificate request times out after 72 hours, and the issuance or renewal process must be repeated from the beginning.

The Page size preference specifies the number of certificates returned on each console page.

For more information about the available certificate details, see Describing ACM certificates.

To list your certificates using the AWS CLI

Use the list-certificates command to list your ACM-managed certificates as shown in the following example:

$ aws acm list-certificates --max-items 10

The command returns information similar to the following:

{ "CertificateSummaryList": [ { "CertificateArn": "arn:aws:acm:Region:444455556666:certificate/certificate_ID", "DomainName": "" "SubjectAlternativeNameSummaries": [ "", "" ], "HasAdditionalSubjectAlternativeNames": false, "Status": "ISSUED", "Type": "IMPORTED", "KeyAlgorithm": "RSA-2048", "KeyUsages": [ "DIGITAL_SIGNATURE", "KEY_ENCIPHERMENT" ], "ExtendedKeyUsages": [ "NONE" ], "InUse": false, "RenewalEligibility": "INELIGIBLE", "NotBefore": "2022-06-14T23:42:49+00:00", "NotAfter": "2032-06-11T23:42:49+00:00", "CreatedAt": "2022-08-25T19:28:05.531000+00:00", "ImportedAt": "2022-08-25T19:28:05.544000+00:00" },... ] }

By default, only certificates with keyTypes RSA_1024 or RSA_2048 and with at least one specified domain are returned. To see other certificates that you control, such as domainless certificates or certificates using a different algorithm or bit size, provide the --includes parameter as shown in the following example. The parameter allows you to specify a member of the Filters structure.

$ aws acm list-certificates --max-items 10 --includes keyTypes=RSA_4096
