get-certificate-authority-certificate

Description

Retrieves the certificate and certificate chain for your private certificate authority (CA). Both the certificate and the chain are base64 PEM-encoded. The chain does not include the CA certificate. Each certificate in the chain signs the one before it.

See also: AWS API Documentation

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.

Synopsis

  get-certificate-authority-certificate
--certificate-authority-arn <value>
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]

Options

--certificate-authority-arn (string)

The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of your private CA. This is of the form:

``arn:aws:acm:region :account :certificate-authority/12345678-1234-1234-1234-123456789012 `` .

--cli-input-json (string) Performs service operation based on the JSON string provided. The JSON string follows the format provided by --generate-cli-skeleton. If other arguments are provided on the command line, the CLI values will override the JSON-provided values.

--generate-cli-skeleton (string) Prints a JSON skeleton to standard output without sending an API request. If provided with no value or the value input, prints a sample input JSON that can be used as an argument for --cli-input-json. If provided with the value output, it validates the command inputs and returns a sample output JSON for that command.

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.
