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.

Retrieves the contents of the encrypted fields SecretString or SecretBinary for up to 20 secrets. To retrieve a single secret, call GetSecretValue.

To choose which secrets to retrieve, you can specify a list of secrets by name or ARN, or you can use filters. If Secrets Manager encounters errors such as AccessDeniedException while attempting to retrieve any of the secrets, you can see the errors in Errors in the response.

Secrets Manager generates CloudTrail GetSecretValue log entries for each secret you request when you call this action. Do not include sensitive information in request parameters because it might be logged. For more information, see Logging Secrets Manager events with CloudTrail.

Required permissions: secretsmanager:BatchGetSecretValue, and you must have secretsmanager:GetSecretValue for each secret. If you use filters, you must also have secretsmanager:ListSecrets. If the secrets are encrypted using customer-managed keys instead of the Amazon Web Services managed key aws/secretsmanager, then you also need kms:Decrypt permissions for the keys. For more information, see IAM policy actions for Secrets Manager and Authentication and access control in Secrets Manager.


This is an asynchronous operation using the standard naming convention for .NET 4.5 or higher. For .NET 3.5 the operation is implemented as a pair of methods using the standard naming convention of BeginBatchGetSecretValue and EndBatchGetSecretValue.

InvalidRequestException A parameter value is not valid for the current state of the resource. Possible causes: The secret is scheduled for deletion. You tried to enable rotation on a secret that doesn't already have a Lambda function ARN configured and you didn't include such an ARN as a parameter in this call. The secret is managed by another service, and you must use that service to update it. For more information, see Secrets managed by other Amazon Web Services services.
