See also: AWS API Documentation

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.

Synopsis

  restore-secret
--secret-id <value>
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]

Options

--secret-id (string)

Specifies the secret that you want to restore from a previously scheduled deletion. You can specify either the Amazon Resource Name (ARN) or the friendly name of the secret.

Note

If you specify an ARN, we generally recommend that you specify a complete ARN. You can specify a partial ARN too—for example, if you don’t include the final hyphen and six random characters that Secrets Manager adds at the end of the ARN when you created the secret. A partial ARN match can work as long as it uniquely matches only one secret. However, if your secret has a name that ends in a hyphen followed by six characters (before Secrets Manager adds the hyphen and six characters to the ARN) and you try to use that as a partial ARN, then those characters cause Secrets Manager to assume that you’re specifying a complete ARN. This confusion can cause unexpected results. To avoid this situation, we recommend that you don’t create secret names that end with a hyphen followed by six characters.

--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 restore a previously deleted secret

The following example shows how to restore a secret that you previously scheduled for deletion.

aws secretsmanager restore-secret --secret-id MyTestDatabaseSecret

  "Name": "MyTestDatabaseSecret"
}

Output

ARN -> (string)

The ARN of the secret that was restored.

Name -> (string)

The friendly name of the secret that was restored.
