Synopsis

Calls the AWS Secrets Manager GetSecretValue API operation.

Syntax

Get-SECSecretValue
-SecretId <String>
-VersionId <String>
-VersionStage <String>
-Select <String>
-PassThru <SwitchParameter>

Description

Retrieves the contents of the encrypted fields SecretString or SecretBinary from the specified version of a secret, whichever contains content. We recommend that you cache your secret values by using client-side caching. Caching secrets improves speed and reduces your costs. For more information, see Cache secrets for your applications. Required permissions: secretsmanager:GetSecretValue. If the secret is encrypted using a customer-managed key instead of the Amazon Web Services managed key aws/secretsmanager, then you also need kms:Decrypt permissions for that key. For more information, see IAM policy actions for Secrets Manager and Authentication and access control in Secrets Manager.

Parameters

-PassThru <SwitchParameter>
Changes the cmdlet behavior to return the value passed to the SecretId parameter. The -PassThru parameter is deprecated, use -Select '^SecretId' instead. This parameter will be removed in a future version.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?True (ByPropertyName)
-SecretId <String>
The ARN or name of the secret to retrieve.For an ARN, we recommend that you specify a complete ARN rather than a partial ARN. See Finding a secret from a partial ARN.
Required?True
Position?1
Accept pipeline input?True (ByValue, ByPropertyName)
-Select <String>
Use the -Select parameter to control the cmdlet output. The default value is '*'. Specifying -Select '*' will result in the cmdlet returning the whole service response (Amazon.SecretsManager.Model.GetSecretValueResponse). Specifying the name of a property of type Amazon.SecretsManager.Model.GetSecretValueResponse will result in that property being returned. Specifying -Select '^ParameterName' will result in the cmdlet returning the selected cmdlet parameter value.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?True (ByPropertyName)
-VersionId <String>
The unique identifier of the version of the secret to retrieve. If you include both this parameter and VersionStage, the two parameters must refer to the same secret version. If you don't specify either a VersionStage or VersionId, then Secrets Manager returns the AWSCURRENT version.This value is typically a UUID-type value with 32 hexadecimal digits.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?True (ByPropertyName)
-VersionStage <String>
The staging label of the version of the secret to retrieve. Secrets Manager uses staging labels to keep track of different versions during the rotation process. If you include both this parameter and VersionId, the two parameters must refer to the same secret version. If you don't specify either a VersionStage or VersionId, Secrets Manager returns the AWSCURRENT version.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?True (ByPropertyName)

Common Credential and Region Parameters

-AccessKey <String>
The AWS access key for the user account. This can be a temporary access key if the corresponding session token is supplied to the -SessionToken parameter.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?True (ByPropertyName)
AliasesAK
-Credential <AWSCredentials>
An AWSCredentials object instance containing access and secret key information, and optionally a token for session-based credentials.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?True (ByValue, ByPropertyName)
-EndpointUrl <String>
The endpoint to make the call against.Note: This parameter is primarily for internal AWS use and is not required/should not be specified for normal usage. The cmdlets normally determine which endpoint to call based on the region specified to the -Region parameter or set as default in the shell (via Set-DefaultAWSRegion). Only specify this parameter if you must direct the call to a specific custom endpoint.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?True (ByPropertyName)
-NetworkCredential <PSCredential>
Used with SAML-based authentication when ProfileName references a SAML role profile. Contains the network credentials to be supplied during authentication with the configured identity provider's endpoint. This parameter is not required if the user's default network identity can or should be used during authentication.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?True (ByValue, ByPropertyName)
-ProfileLocation <String>
Used to specify the name and location of the ini-format credential file (shared with the AWS CLI and other AWS SDKs)If this optional parameter is omitted this cmdlet will search the encrypted credential file used by the AWS SDK for .NET and AWS Toolkit for Visual Studio first. If the profile is not found then the cmdlet will search in the ini-format credential file at the default location: (user's home directory)\.aws\credentials.If this parameter is specified then this cmdlet will only search the ini-format credential file at the location given.As the current folder can vary in a shell or during script execution it is advised that you use specify a fully qualified path instead of a relative path.
Required?False

AliasesAWSProfilesLocation, ProfilesLocation
-ProfileName <String>
The user-defined name of an AWS credentials or SAML-based role profile containing credential information.

Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?True (ByPropertyName)
AliasesStoredCredentials, AWSProfileName
-Region <Object>

Required?False
Position?Named

AliasesRegionToCall
-SecretKey <String>
The AWS secret key for the user account. This can be a temporary secret key if the corresponding session token is supplied to the -SessionToken parameter.
Required?False
Position?Named
