AWS Key Management Service
API Reference (API Version 2014-11-01)

DescribeCustomKeyStores

Gets information about custom key stores in the account and region.

This operation is part of the Custom Key Store feature feature in AWS KMS, which combines the convenience and extensive integration of AWS KMS with the isolation and control of a single-tenant key store.

By default, this operation returns information about all custom key stores in the account and region. To get only information about a particular custom key store, use either the CustomKeyStoreName or CustomKeyStoreId parameter (but not both).

To determine whether the custom key store is connected to its AWS CloudHSM cluster, use the ConnectionState element in the response. If an attempt to connect the custom key store failed, the ConnectionState value is FAILED and the ConnectionErrorCode element in the response indicates the cause of the failure. For help interpreting the ConnectionErrorCode, see CustomKeyStoresListEntry.

Custom key stores have a DISCONNECTED connection state if the key store has never been connected or you use the DisconnectCustomKeyStore operation to disconnect it. If your custom key store state is CONNECTED but you are having trouble using it, make sure that its associated AWS CloudHSM cluster is active and contains the minimum number of HSMs required for the operation, if any.

For help repairing your custom key store, see the Troubleshooting Custom Key Stores topic in the AWS Key Management Service Developer Guide.

Request Syntax

{ "CustomKeyStoreId": "string", "CustomKeyStoreName": "string", "Limit": number, "Marker": "string" }

Request Parameters

For information about the parameters that are common to all actions, see Common Parameters.

The request accepts the following data in JSON format.

Note

In the following list, the required parameters are described first.

CustomKeyStoreId

Gets only information about the specified custom key store. Enter the key store ID.

By default, this operation gets information about all custom key stores in the account and region. To limit the output to a particular custom key store, you can use either the CustomKeyStoreId or CustomKeyStoreName parameter, but not both.

Type: String

Length Constraints: Minimum length of 1. Maximum length of 64.

Required: No

CustomKeyStoreName

Gets only information about the specified custom key store. Enter the friendly name of the custom key store.

By default, this operation gets information about all custom key stores in the account and region. To limit the output to a particular custom key store, you can use either the CustomKeyStoreId or CustomKeyStoreName parameter, but not both.

Type: String

Length Constraints: Minimum length of 1. Maximum length of 256.

Required: No

Limit

Use this parameter to specify the maximum number of items to return. When this value is present, AWS KMS does not return more than the specified number of items, but it might return fewer.

Type: Integer

Valid Range: Minimum value of 1. Maximum value of 1000.

Required: No

Marker

Use this parameter in a subsequent request after you receive a response with truncated results. Set it to the value of NextMarker from the truncated response you just received.

Type: String

Length Constraints: Minimum length of 1. Maximum length of 1024.

Pattern: [\u0020-\u00FF]*

Required: No

Response Syntax

{ "CustomKeyStores": [ { "CloudHsmClusterId": "string", "ConnectionErrorCode": "string", "ConnectionState": "string", "CreationDate": number, "CustomKeyStoreId": "string", "CustomKeyStoreName": "string", "TrustAnchorCertificate": "string" } ], "NextMarker": "string", "Truncated": boolean }

Response Elements

If the action is successful, the service sends back an HTTP 200 response.

The following data is returned in JSON format by the service.

CustomKeyStores

Contains metadata about each custom key store.

Type: Array of CustomKeyStoresListEntry objects

NextMarker

When Truncated is true, this element is present and contains the value to use for the Marker parameter in a subsequent request.

Type: String

Length Constraints: Minimum length of 1. Maximum length of 1024.

Pattern: [\u0020-\u00FF]*

Truncated

A flag that indicates whether there are more items in the list. When this value is true, the list in this response is truncated. To get more items, pass the value of the NextMarker element in thisresponse to the Marker parameter in a subsequent request.

Type: Boolean

Errors

For information about the errors that are common to all actions, see Common Errors.

CustomKeyStoreNotFoundException

The request was rejected because AWS KMS cannot find a custom key store with the specified key store name or ID.

HTTP Status Code: 400

KMSInternalException

The request was rejected because an internal exception occurred. The request can be retried.

HTTP Status Code: 500
