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 operation. Take the CSR to your on-premises X.509 infrastructure and sign it by using your root or a subordinate CA. Then import the signed certificate back into ACM PCA by calling the ImportCertificateAuthorityCertificate operation. 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 operation. 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.
