[ aws . signer ]



Creates a signing profile. A signing profile is a code signing template that can be used to carry out a pre-defined signing job. For more information, see http://docs.aws.amazon.com/signer/latest/developerguide/gs-profile.html

--profile-name (string)

The name of the signing profile to be created.

--signing-material (structure)

The AWS Certificate Manager certificate that will be used to sign code with the new signing profile.

certificateArn -> (string)

The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the certificates that is used to sign your code.

Shorthand Syntax:


JSON Syntax:

  "certificateArn": "string"

--signature-validity-period (structure)

The default validity period override for any signature generated using this signing profile. If unspecified, the default is 135 months.

value -> (integer)

The numerical value of the time unit for signature validity.

type -> (string)

The time unit for signature validity.

Shorthand Syntax:


JSON Syntax:

  "value": integer,
  "type": "DAYS"|"MONTHS"|"YEARS"

--platform-id (string)

The ID of the signing platform to be created.

--overrides (structure)

A subfield of platform . This specifies any different configuration options that you want to apply to the chosen platform (such as a different hash-algorithm or signing-algorithm ).

signingConfiguration -> (structure)

A signing configuration that overrides the default encryption or hash algorithm of a signing job.

encryptionAlgorithm -> (string)

A specified override of the default encryption algorithm that is used in a code signing job.

hashAlgorithm -> (string)

A specified override of the default hash algorithm that is used in a code signing job.

signingImageFormat -> (string)

A signed image is a JSON object. When overriding the default signing platform configuration, a customer can select either of two signing formats, JSONEmbedded or JSONDetached . (A third format value, JSON , is reserved for future use.) With JSONEmbedded , the signing image has the payload embedded in it. With JSONDetached , the payload is not be embedded in the signing image.

Shorthand Syntax:


JSON Syntax:

  "signingConfiguration": {
    "encryptionAlgorithm": "RSA"|"ECDSA",
    "hashAlgorithm": "SHA1"|"SHA256"
  "signingImageFormat": "JSON"|"JSONEmbedded"|"JSONDetached"

--signing-parameters (map)

Map of key-value pairs for signing. These can include any information that you want to use during signing.

key -> (string)

value -> (string)

Shorthand Syntax:


JSON Syntax:

{"string": "string"

--tags (map)

Tags to be associated with the signing profile that is being created.

key -> (string)

value -> (string)

Shorthand Syntax:


JSON Syntax:

{"string": "string"

--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. The generated JSON skeleton is not stable between versions of the AWS CLI and there are no backwards compatibility guarantees in the JSON skeleton generated.

To use the following examples, you must have the AWS CLI installed and configured. See the Getting started guide in the AWS CLI User Guide for more information.

Unless otherwise stated, all examples have unix-like quotation rules. These examples will need to be adapted to your terminal’s quoting rules. See Using quotation marks with strings in the AWS CLI User Guide .

To create a signing profile

The following put-signing-profile example creates a signing profile using the specified certificate and platform.

aws signer put-signing-profile \
    --profile-name MyProfile6 \
    --signing-material certificateArn=arn:aws:acm:us-west-2:123456789012:certificate/6a55389b-306b-4e8c-a95c-0123456789abc \
    --platform AmazonFreeRTOS-TI-CC3220SF


    "arn": "arn:aws:signer:us-west-2:123456789012:/signing-profiles/MyProfile6"


arn -> (string)

The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the signing profile created.

profileVersion -> (string)

The version of the signing profile being created.

profileVersionArn -> (string)

The signing profile ARN, including the profile version.
