AWS Secrets Manager API Reference
AWS Secrets Manager API Reference Guide (API Version 2017-10-17)

UpdateSecretVersionStage

Modifies the staging labels attached to a version of a secret. Staging labels are used to track a version as it progresses through the secret rotation process. You can attach a staging label to only one version of a secret at a time. If a staging label to be added is already attached to another version, then it is moved--removed from the other version first and then attached to this one. For more information about staging labels, see Staging Labels in the AWS Secrets Manager User Guide.

The staging labels that you specify in the VersionStage parameter are added to the existing list of staging labels--they don't replace it.

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

Note

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.

Minimum permissions

To run this command, you must have the following permissions:

  • secretsmanager:UpdateSecretVersionStage

Related operations

  • To get the list of staging labels that are currently associated with a version of a secret, use DescribeSecret and examine the SecretVersionsToStages response value.

Request Syntax

{ "MoveToVersionId": "string", "RemoveFromVersionId": "string", "SecretId": "string", "VersionStage": "string" }

Request Parameters

For information about the parameters that are common to all actions, see Common Parameters.

The request accepts the following data in JSON format.

MoveToVersionId

(Optional) The secret version ID that you want to add the staging label to. If you want to remove a label from a version, then do not specify this parameter.

If the staging label is already attached to a different version of the secret, then you must also specify the RemoveFromVersionId parameter.

Type: String

Length Constraints: Minimum length of 32. Maximum length of 64.

Required: No

RemoveFromVersionId

Specifies the secret version ID of the version that the staging label is to be removed from. If the staging label you are trying to attach to one version is already attached to a different version, then you must include this parameter and specify the version that the label is to be removed from. If the label is attached and you either do not specify this parameter, or the version ID does not match, then the operation fails.

Type: String

Length Constraints: Minimum length of 32. Maximum length of 64.

Required: No

SecretId

Specifies the secret with the version whose list of staging labels you want to modify. You can specify either the Amazon Resource Name (ARN) or the friendly name of the secret.

Note

If you specify an ARN, we generally recommend that you specify a complete ARN. You can specify a partial ARN too—for example, if you don’t include the final hyphen and six random characters that Secrets Manager adds at the end of the ARN when you created the secret. A partial ARN match can work as long as it uniquely matches only one secret. However, if your secret has a name that ends in a hyphen followed by six characters (before Secrets Manager adds the hyphen and six characters to the ARN) and you try to use that as a partial ARN, then those characters cause Secrets Manager to assume that you’re specifying a complete ARN. This confusion can cause unexpected results. To avoid this situation, we recommend that you don’t create secret names that end with a hyphen followed by six characters.

Type: String

Length Constraints: Minimum length of 1. Maximum length of 2048.

Required: Yes

VersionStage

The staging label to add to this version.

Type: String

Length Constraints: Minimum length of 1. Maximum length of 256.

Required: Yes

Response Syntax

{ "ARN": "string", "Name": "string" }

Response Elements

If the action is successful, the service sends back an HTTP 200 response.

The following data is returned in JSON format by the service.

ARN

The ARN of the secret with the staging label that was modified.

Type: String

Length Constraints: Minimum length of 20. Maximum length of 2048.

Name

The friendly name of the secret with the staging label that was modified.

Type: String

Length Constraints: Minimum length of 1. Maximum length of 256.

Errors

For information about the errors that are common to all actions, see Common Errors.

InternalServiceError

An error occurred on the server side.

HTTP Status Code: 500

InvalidParameterException

You provided an invalid value for a parameter.

HTTP Status Code: 400

InvalidRequestException

You provided a parameter value that is not valid for the current state of the resource.

Possible causes:

  • You tried to perform the operation on a secret that's currently marked deleted.

  • 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.

HTTP Status Code: 400

LimitExceededException

The request failed because it would exceed one of the Secrets Manager internal limits.

HTTP Status Code: 400

ResourceNotFoundException

We can't find the resource that you asked for.

HTTP Status Code: 400
