cancel-key-deletion

Description

Cancels the deletion of a customer master key (CMK). When this operation succeeds, the key state of the CMK is Disabled . To enable the CMK, use EnableKey . You cannot perform this operation on a CMK in a different AWS account.

For more information about scheduling and canceling deletion of a CMK, see Deleting Customer Master Keys in the AWS Key Management Service Developer Guide .

The CMK that you use for this operation must be in a compatible key state. For details, see How Key State Affects Use of a Customer Master Key in the AWS Key Management Service Developer Guide .

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.

Synopsis

  cancel-key-deletion
--key-id <value>
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]

Options

--key-id (string)

The unique identifier for the customer master key (CMK) for which to cancel deletion.

Specify the key ID or the Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the CMK.

For example:

  • Key ID: 1234abcd-12ab-34cd-56ef-1234567890ab
  • Key ARN: arn:aws:kms:us-east-2:111122223333:key/1234abcd-12ab-34cd-56ef-1234567890ab

To get the key ID and key ARN for a CMK, use ListKeys or DescribeKey .

--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 cancel the scheduled deletion of a customer managed CMK

The following cancel-key-deletion example cancels the scheduled deletion of a customer managed CMK and re-enables the CMK so you can use it in cryptographic operations.

The first command in the example uses the cancel-key-deletion command to cancel the scheduled deletion of the CMK. It uses the --key-id parameter to identify the CMK. This example uses a key ID value, but you can use either the key ID or the key ARN of the CMK.

To re-enable the CMK, use the enable-key command. To identify the CMK, use the --key-id parameter. This example uses a key ID value, but you can use either the key ID or the key ARN of the CMK.

aws kms cancel-key-deletion \
    --key-id 1234abcd-12ab-34cd-56ef-1234567890ab

The cancel-key-deletion response returns the key ARN of the CMK whose deletion was canceled.

{
    "KeyId": "arn:aws:kms:us-west-2:123456789012:key/1234abcd-12ab-34cd-56ef-1234567890ab"
}

When the cancel-key-deletion command succeeds, the scheduled deletion is canceled. However, the key state of the CMK is Disabled, so you can't use the CMK in cryptographic operations. To restore its functionality, you must re-enable the CMK.

aws kms enable-key \
    --key-id 1234abcd-12ab-34cd-56ef-1234567890ab

The enable-key operation does not return a response. To verify that the CMK is re-enabled and there is no deletion date associated with the CMK, use the describe-key operation.

For more information, see Scheduling and Canceling Key Deletion in the AWS Key Management Service Developer Guide.

Output

KeyId -> (string)

The unique identifier of the master key for which deletion is canceled.
