(deprecated) A certificate managed by AWS Certificate Manager.

Will be automatically validated using DNS validation against the specified Route 53 hosted zone.

# The code below shows an example of how to instantiate this type.
# The values are placeholders you should change.
from aws_cdk import aws_certificatemanager as certificatemanager
from aws_cdk import aws_iam as iam
from aws_cdk import aws_route53 as route53

# certificate_validation: certificatemanager.CertificateValidation
# hosted_zone: route53.HostedZone
# key_algorithm: certificatemanager.KeyAlgorithm
# role: iam.Role

dns_validated_certificate = certificatemanager.DnsValidatedCertificate(self, "MyDnsValidatedCertificate",

    # the properties below are optional
  • scope (Construct) –

  • id (str) –

  • hosted_zone (IHostedZone) – Route 53 Hosted Zone used to perform DNS validation of the request. The zone must be authoritative for the domain name specified in the Certificate Request.

  • cleanup_route53_records (Optional[bool]) – When set to true, when the DnsValidatedCertificate is deleted, the associated Route53 validation records are removed. CAUTION: If multiple certificates share the same domains (and same validation records), this can cause the other certificates to fail renewal and/or not validate. Not recommended for production use. Default: false

  • custom_resource_role (Optional[IRole]) – Role to use for the custom resource that creates the validated certificate. Default: - A new role will be created

  • region (Optional[str]) – AWS region that will host the certificate. This is needed especially for certificates used for CloudFront distributions, which require the region to be us-east-1. Default: the region the stack is deployed in.

  • route53_endpoint (Optional[str]) – An endpoint of Route53 service, which is not necessary as AWS SDK could figure out the right endpoints for most regions, but for some regions such as those in aws-cn partition, the default endpoint is not working now, hence the right endpoint need to be specified through this prop. Route53 is not been officially launched in China, it is only available for AWS internal accounts now. To make DnsValidatedCertificate work for internal accounts now, a special endpoint needs to be provided. Default: - The AWS SDK will determine the Route53 endpoint to use based on region

  • domain_name (str) – Fully-qualified domain name to request a certificate for. May contain wildcards, such as *.domain.com.

  • certificate_name (Optional[str]) – The Certificate name. Since the Certificate resource doesn’t support providing a physical name, the value provided here will be recorded in the Name tag Default: the full, absolute path of this construct

  • key_algorithm (Optional[KeyAlgorithm]) – Specifies the algorithm of the public and private key pair that your certificate uses to encrypt data. Default: KeyAlgorithm.RSA_2048

  • subject_alternative_names (Optional[Sequence[str]]) – Alternative domain names on your certificate. Use this to register alternative domain names that represent the same site. Default: - No additional FQDNs will be included as alternative domain names.

  • transparency_logging_enabled (Optional[bool]) – Enable or disable transparency logging for this certificate. Once a certificate has been logged, it cannot be removed from the log. Opting out at that point will have no effect. If you opt out of logging when you request a certificate and then choose later to opt back in, your certificate will not be logged until it is renewed. If you want the certificate to be logged immediately, we recommend that you issue a new one. Default: true

  • validation (Optional[CertificateValidation]) – How to validate this certificate. Default: CertificateValidation.fromEmail()





(deprecated) Apply the given removal policy to this resource.

The Removal Policy controls what happens to this resource when it stops being managed by CloudFormation, either because you’ve removed it from the CDK application or because you’ve made a change that requires the resource to be replaced.

The resource can be deleted (RemovalPolicy.DESTROY), or left in your AWS account for data recovery and cleanup later (RemovalPolicy.RETAIN).


policy (RemovalPolicy) –



Return type:


metric_days_to_expiry(*, account=None, color=None, dimensions_map=None, label=None, period=None, region=None, statistic=None, unit=None)

(deprecated) Return the DaysToExpiry metric for this AWS Certificate Manager Certificate. By default, this is the minimum value over 1 day.

This metric is no longer emitted once the certificate has effectively expired, so alarms configured on this metric should probably treat missing data as “breaching”.

  • account (Optional[str]) – Account which this metric comes from. Default: - Deployment account.

  • color (Optional[str]) – The hex color code, prefixed with ‘#’ (e.g. ‘#00ff00’), to use when this metric is rendered on a graph. The Color class has a set of standard colors that can be used here. Default: - Automatic color

  • dimensions_map (Optional[Mapping[str, str]]) – Dimensions of the metric. Default: - No dimensions.

  • label (Optional[str]) – Label for this metric when added to a Graph in a Dashboard. You can use dynamic labels to show summary information about the entire displayed time series in the legend. For example, if you use:: [max: ${MAX}] MyMetric As the metric label, the maximum value in the visible range will be shown next to the time series name in the graph’s legend. Default: - No label

  • period (Optional[Duration]) – The period over which the specified statistic is applied. Default: Duration.minutes(5)

  • region (Optional[str]) – Region which this metric comes from. Default: - Deployment region.

  • statistic (Optional[str]) – What function to use for aggregating. Use the aws_cloudwatch.Stats helper class to construct valid input strings. Can be one of the following: - “Minimum” | “min” - “Maximum” | “max” - “Average” | “avg” - “Sum” | “sum” - “SampleCount | “n” - “pNN.NN” - “tmNN.NN” | “tm(NN.NN%:NN.NN%)” - “iqm” - “wmNN.NN” | “wm(NN.NN%:NN.NN%)” - “tcNN.NN” | “tc(NN.NN%:NN.NN%)” - “tsNN.NN” | “ts(NN.NN%:NN.NN%)” Default: Average

  • unit (Optional[Unit]) – Unit used to filter the metric stream. Only refer to datums emitted to the metric stream with the given unit and ignore all others. Only useful when datums are being emitted to the same metric stream under different units. The default is to use all matric datums in the stream, regardless of unit, which is recommended in nearly all cases. CloudWatch does not honor this property for graphs. Default: - All metric datums in the given metric stream



Return type:



Returns a string representation of this construct.

Return type:




(deprecated) The certificate’s ARN.




The environment this resource belongs to.

For resources that are created and managed by the CDK (generally, those created by creating new class instances like Role, Bucket, etc.), this is always the same as the environment of the stack they belong to; however, for imported resources (those obtained from static methods like fromRoleArn, fromBucketName, etc.), that might be different than the stack they were imported into.


The tree node.


The stack in which this resource is defined.


(deprecated) Resource Tags.





Static Methods

classmethod is_construct(x)

Checks if x is a construct.

Use this method instead of instanceof to properly detect Construct instances, even when the construct library is symlinked.

Explanation: in JavaScript, multiple copies of the constructs library on disk are seen as independent, completely different libraries. As a consequence, the class Construct in each copy of the constructs library is seen as a different class, and an instance of one class will not test as instanceof the other class. npm install will not create installations like this, but users may manually symlink construct libraries together or use a monorepo tool: in those cases, multiple copies of the constructs library can be accidentally installed, and instanceof will behave unpredictably. It is safest to avoid using instanceof, and using this type-testing method instead.


x (Any) – Any object.

Return type:



true if x is an object created from a class which extends Construct.

classmethod is_owned_resource(construct)

Returns true if the construct was created by CDK, and false otherwise.


construct (IConstruct) –

Return type:


classmethod is_resource(construct)

Check whether the given construct is a Resource.
