Modifies the staging labels attached to a version of a secret. Secrets Manager uses staging labels to track a version as it progresses through the secret rotation process. Each staging label can be attached to only one version at a time. To add a staging label to a version when it is already attached to another version, Secrets Manager first removes it from the other version first and then attaches it to this one. For more information about versions and staging labels, see Concepts: Version.

The staging labels that you specify in the VersionStage parameter are added to the existing list of staging labels for the version.

You can move the AWSCURRENT staging label to this version by including it in this call.

Whenever you move AWSCURRENT, Secrets Manager automatically moves the label AWSPREVIOUS to the version that AWSCURRENT was removed from.

If this action results in the last label being removed from a version, then the version is considered to be 'deprecated' and can be deleted by Secrets Manager.

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:UpdateSecretVersionStage. 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 BeginUpdateSecretVersionStage and EndUpdateSecretVersionStage.

InternalServiceErrorException An error occurred on the server side.
InvalidParameterException The parameter name or value is invalid.
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.
