[ aws . kms ]



Retires a grant. To clean up, you can retire a grant when you’re done using it. You should revoke a grant when you intend to actively deny operations that depend on it. The following are permitted to call this API:

  • The AWS account (root user) under which the grant was created

  • The RetiringPrincipal , if present in the grant

  • The GranteePrincipal , if RetireGrant is an operation specified in the grant

You must identify the grant to retire by its grant token or by a combination of the grant ID and the Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the customer master key (CMK). A grant token is a unique variable-length base64-encoded string. A grant ID is a 64 character unique identifier of a grant. The CreateGrant operation returns both.

--grant-token (string)

Token that identifies the grant to be retired.

--key-id (string)

The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the CMK associated with the grant.

For example: arn:aws:kms:us-east-2:444455556666:key/1234abcd-12ab-34cd-56ef-1234567890ab

--grant-id (string)

Unique identifier of the grant to retire. The grant ID is returned in the response to a CreateGrant operation.

  • Grant ID Example - 0123456789012345678901234567890123456789012345678901234567890123

--cli-input-json | --cli-input-yaml (string) Reads arguments from the JSON string provided. The JSON string follows the format provided by --generate-cli-skeleton. If other arguments are provided on the command line, those values will override the JSON-provided values. It is not possible to pass arbitrary binary values using a JSON-provided value as the string will be taken literally. This may not be specified along with --cli-input-yaml.

--generate-cli-skeleton (string) Prints a JSON skeleton to standard output without sending an API request. If provided with no value or the value input, prints a sample input JSON that can be used as an argument for --cli-input-json. Similarly, if provided yaml-input it will print a sample input YAML that can be used with --cli-input-yaml. If provided with the value output, it validates the command inputs and returns a sample output JSON for that command.

--cli-auto-prompt (boolean) Automatically prompt for CLI input parameters.
