get-certificate-authority-csr

Description

Retrieves the certificate signing request (CSR) for your private certificate authority (CA). The CSR is created when you call the CreateCertificateAuthority action. Sign the CSR with your ACM Private CA-hosted or on-premises root or subordinate CA. Then import the signed certificate back into ACM Private CA by calling the ImportCertificateAuthorityCertificate action. The CSR is returned as a base64 PEM-encoded string.

See also: AWS API Documentation

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.

Synopsis

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

Options

--certificate-authority-arn (string)

The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) that was returned when you called the CreateCertificateAuthority action. This must be 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.
