get-policy

Description

Retrieves the resource-based policy attached to a private CA. If either the private CA resource or the policy cannot be found, this action returns a ResourceNotFoundException .

The policy can be attached or updated with PutPolicy and removed with DeletePolicy .

About Policies
  • A policy grants access on a private CA to an Amazon Web Services customer account, to Amazon Web Services Organizations, or to an Amazon Web Services Organizations unit. Policies are under the control of a CA administrator. For more information, see Using a Resource Based Policy with ACM Private CA .
  • A policy permits a user of Certificate Manager (ACM) to issue ACM certificates signed by a CA in another account.
  • For ACM to manage automatic renewal of these certificates, the ACM user must configure a Service Linked Role (SLR). The SLR allows the ACM service to assume the identity of the user, subject to confirmation against the ACM Private CA policy. For more information, see Using a Service Linked Role with ACM .
  • Updates made in Amazon Web Services Resource Manager (RAM) are reflected in policies. For more information, see Attach a Policy for Cross-Account Access .

Synopsis

  get-policy
--resource-arn <value>
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]

Options

--resource-arn (string)

The Amazon Resource Number (ARN) of the private CA that will have its policy retrieved. You can find the CA's ARN by calling the ListCertificateAuthorities action.

--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.

Output

Policy -> (string)

The policy attached to the private CA as a JSON document.
