enable-key-rotation

Description

Enables automatic rotation of the key material for the specified symmetric customer master key (CMK). You cannot perform this operation on a CMK in a different AWS account.

You cannot enable automatic rotation of asymmetric CMKs, CMKs with imported key material, or CMKs in a custom key store .

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 also: AWS API Documentation

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.

Synopsis

  enable-key-rotation
--key-id <value>
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]

Options

--key-id (string)

Identifies a symmetric customer master key (CMK). You cannot enable automatic rotation of asymmetric CMKs, CMKs with imported key material, or CMKs in a custom key store .

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 enable automatic rotation of a customer master key (CMK)

The following enable-key-rotation example enables automatic rotation of a customer managed customer master key (CMK). The CMK will be rotated one year (365 days) from the date that this command completes and every year thereafter.

To specify the CMK, use the key-id parameter. This example uses a key ARN value, but you can use a key ID or key ARN in this command.

Before running this command, replace the example key ARN with a valid one.

aws kms enable-key-rotation \
    --key-id arn:aws:kms:us-west-2:111122223333:key/1234abcd-12ab-34cd-56ef-1234567890ab

This command produces no output. To verify that the CMK is enabled, use the get-key-rotation-status command.
