Synopsis

Calls the Amazon Glacier InitiateVaultLock API operation.

Syntax

Start-GLCVaultLock
-VaultName <String>
-AccountId <String>
-Policy <VaultLockPolicy>
-Select <String>
-PassThru <SwitchParameter>
-Force <SwitchParameter>

Description

This operation initiates the vault locking process by doing the following:
  • Installing a vault lock policy on the specified vault.
  • Setting the lock state of vault lock to InProgress.
  • Returning a lock ID, which is used to complete the vault locking process.
You can set one vault lock policy for each vault and this policy can be up to 20 KB in size. For more information about vault lock policies, see Amazon Glacier Access Control with Vault Lock Policies. You must complete the vault locking process within 24 hours after the vault lock enters the InProgress state. After the 24 hour window ends, the lock ID expires, the vault automatically exits the InProgress state, and the vault lock policy is removed from the vault. You call CompleteVaultLock to complete the vault locking process by setting the state of the vault lock to Locked. After a vault lock is in the Locked state, you cannot initiate a new vault lock for the vault. You can abort the vault locking process by calling AbortVaultLock. You can get the state of the vault lock by calling GetVaultLock. For more information about the vault locking process, Amazon Glacier Vault Lock. If this operation is called when the vault lock is in the InProgress state, the operation returns an AccessDeniedException error. When the vault lock is in the InProgress state you must call AbortVaultLock before you can initiate a new vault lock policy.

Parameters

-AccountId <String>
The AccountId value is the AWS account ID. This value must match the AWS account ID associated with the credentials used to sign the request. You can either specify an AWS account ID or optionally a single '-' (hyphen), in which case Amazon Glacier uses the AWS account ID associated with the credentials used to sign the request. If you specify your account ID, do not include any hyphens ('-') in the ID.If a value for this parameter is not specified the cmdlet will use a default value of '-'.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?True (ByPropertyName)
This parameter overrides confirmation prompts to force the cmdlet to continue its operation. This parameter should always be used with caution.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?True (ByPropertyName)
-PassThru <SwitchParameter>
Changes the cmdlet behavior to return the value passed to the VaultName parameter. The -PassThru parameter is deprecated, use -Select '^VaultName' instead. This parameter will be removed in a future version.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?True (ByPropertyName)
-Policy <VaultLockPolicy>
The vault lock policy as a JSON string, which uses "\" as an escape character.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?True (ByPropertyName)
-Select <String>
Use the -Select parameter to control the cmdlet output. The default value is 'LockId'. Specifying -Select '*' will result in the cmdlet returning the whole service response (Amazon.Glacier.Model.InitiateVaultLockResponse). Specifying the name of a property of type Amazon.Glacier.Model.InitiateVaultLockResponse 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)
-VaultName <String>
The name of the vault.
Required?True
Position?1
Accept pipeline input?True (ByValue, ByPropertyName)

Common Credential and Region Parameters

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.

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>
