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.

Sets the state of a KMS key to disabled. This change temporarily prevents use of the KMS key for cryptographic operations.

For more information about how key state affects the use of a KMS key, see Key states of KMS keys in the Key Management Service Developer Guide.

The KMS key that you use for this operation must be in a compatible key state. For details, see Key states of KMS keys in the Key Management Service Developer Guide.

Cross-account use: No. You cannot perform this operation on a KMS key in a different Amazon Web Services account.

Required permissions: kms:DisableKey (key policy)

Related operations: EnableKey

Note:

For .NET Core this operation is only available in asynchronous form. Please refer to DisableKeyAsync.

Namespace: Amazon.KeyManagementService
Assembly: AWSSDK.KeyManagementService.dll
Version: 3.x.y.z

Syntax

C#
public virtual DisableKeyResponse DisableKey(
         String keyId
)
Parameters
keyId
Type: System.String

Identifies the KMS key to disable. Specify the key ID or key ARN of the KMS key. For example: Key ID: 1234abcd-12ab-34cd-56ef-1234567890ab Key ARN: arn:aws:kms:us-east-2:111122223333:key/1234abcd-12ab-34cd-56ef-1234567890ab To get the key ID and key ARN for a KMS key, use ListKeys or DescribeKey.

Return Value
The response from the DisableKey service method, as returned by KeyManagementService.

Exceptions

ExceptionCondition
DependencyTimeoutException The system timed out while trying to fulfill the request. You can retry the request.
InvalidArnException The request was rejected because a specified ARN, or an ARN in a key policy, is not valid.
KMSInternalException The request was rejected because an internal exception occurred. The request can be retried.
KMSInvalidStateException The request was rejected because the state of the specified resource is not valid for this request. This exceptions means one of the following: The key state of the KMS key is not compatible with the operation. To find the key state, use the DescribeKey operation. For more information about which key states are compatible with each KMS operation, see Key states of KMS keys in the Key Management Service Developer Guide. For cryptographic operations on KMS keys in custom key stores, this exception represents a general failure with many possible causes. To identify the cause, see the error message that accompanies the exception.
NotFoundException The request was rejected because the specified entity or resource could not be found.
