AWS SDK Version 3 for .NET
API Reference

AWS services or capabilities described in AWS Documentation may vary by region/location. Click Getting Started with Amazon AWS to see specific differences applicable to the China (Beijing) Region.

Container for the parameters to the UpdateAccessKey operation. Changes the status of the specified access key from Active to Inactive, or vice versa. This operation can be used to disable a user's key as part of a key rotation workflow.

If the UserName field is not specified, the user name is determined implicitly based on the AWS access key ID used to sign the request. Because this operation works for access keys under the AWS account, you can use this operation to manage AWS account root user credentials even if the AWS account has no associated users.

For information about rotating keys, see Managing Keys and Certificates in the IAM User Guide.
