[ aws . kms ]

get-key-rotation-status

Description

Gets a Boolean value that indicates whether automatic rotation of the key material is enabled for the specified customer master key (CMK).

The result of this operation varies with the key state of the CMK. For details, see How Key State Affects Use of a Customer Master Key in the AWS Key Management Service Developer Guide .

  • Disabled: The key rotation status does not change when you disable a CMK. However, while the CMK is disabled, AWS KMS does not rotate the backing key.
  • Pending deletion: While a CMK is pending deletion, its key rotation status is false and AWS KMS does not rotate the backing key. If you cancel the deletion, the original key rotation status is restored.

To perform this operation on a CMK in a different AWS account, specify the key ARN in the value of the KeyId parameter.

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.

Synopsis

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

Options

--key-id (string)

A unique identifier for the customer master key (CMK).

Specify the key ID or the Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the CMK. To specify a CMK in a different AWS account, you must use the key ARN.

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.

Output

KeyRotationEnabled -> (boolean)

A Boolean value that specifies whether key rotation is enabled.
