get-certificate-authority-certificate

Description

Retrieves the certificate and certificate chain for your private certificate authority (CA) or one that has been shared with you. 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-pca: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. It is not possible to pass arbitrary binary values using a JSON-provided value as the string will be taken literally.

--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.

Examples

To retrieve a certificate authority (CA) certificate

The following get-certificate-authority-certificate command retrieves the certificate and certificate chain for the private CA specified by the ARN.

aws acm-pca get-certificate-authority-certificate --certificate-authority-arn arn:aws:acm-pca:us-west-2:123456789012:certificate-authority/12345678-1234-1234-1234-123456789012 --output text

Output

Certificate -> (string)

Base64-encoded certificate authority (CA) certificate.

CertificateChain -> (string)

Base64-encoded certificate chain that includes any intermediate certificates and chains up to root on-premises certificate that you used to sign your private CA certificate. The chain does not include your private CA certificate. If this is a root CA, the value will be null.
