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 from the specified version of a secret, whichever contains content.

To retrieve the values for a group of secrets, call BatchGetSecretValue.

We recommend that you cache your secret values by using client-side caching. Caching secrets improves speed and reduces your costs. For more information, see Cache secrets for your applications.

To retrieve the previous version of a secret, use VersionStage and specify AWSPREVIOUS. To revert to the previous version of a secret, call UpdateSecretVersionStage.

Secrets Manager generates a CloudTrail log entry 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:GetSecretValue. If the secret is encrypted using a customer-managed key instead of the Amazon Web Services managed key aws/secretsmanager, then you also need kms:Decrypt permissions for that key. For more information, see IAM policy actions for Secrets Manager and Authentication and access control in Secrets Manager.

Note:

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 BeginGetSecretValue and EndGetSecretValue.

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.
