Imports a certificate into AWS Certificate Manager (ACM) to use with services that
are integrated with ACM. Note that integrated
services allow only certificate types and keys they support to be associated with
their resources. Further, their support differs depending on whether the certificate
is imported into IAM or into ACM. For more information, see the documentation for
each service. For more information about importing certificates into ACM, see Importing
Certificates in the AWS Certificate Manager User Guide.
ACM does not provide managed
renewal for certificates that you import.
ACM does not provide managed renewal for certificates that you import.
Note the following guidelines when importing third party certificates:
You must enter the private key that matches the certificate you are importing.
The private key must be unencrypted. You cannot import a private key that is protected by a password or a passphrase.
If the certificate you are importing is not self-signed, you must enter its certificate chain.
If a certificate chain is included, the issuer must be the subject of one of the certificates in the chain.
The certificate, private key, and certificate chain must be PEM-encoded.
The current time must be between the
Not Before and
Issuer field must not be empty.
The OCSP authority URL, if present, must not exceed 1000 characters.
To import a new certificate, omit the
CertificateArn argument. Include
this argument only when you want to replace a previously imported certificate.
When you import a certificate by using the CLI or one of the SDKs, you must specify
the certificate, the certificate chain, and the private key by their file names preceded
file://. For example, you can specify a certificate saved in the
file://C:\temp\certificate_to_import.pem. If you are making
an HTTP or HTTPS Query request, include these arguments as BLOBs.
This operation returns the Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the imported certificate.
For .NET Core and PCL this operation is only available in asynchronous form. Please refer to ImportCertificateAsync.
