Associates an existing AWS KMS alias with a different customer master key (CMK). Each alias is associated with only one CMK at a time, although a CMK can have multiple aliases. The alias and the CMK must be in the same AWS account and region. You cannot perform this operation on an alias in a different AWS account.
[required] Identifies the alias that is changing its CMK. This value must begin
[required] Identifies the CMK to associate with the alias. When the update operation completes, the alias will point to this CMK.
The CMK must be in the same AWS account and Region as the alias. Also, the new target CMK must be the same type as the current target CMK (both symmetric or both asymmetric) and they must have the same key usage.
Specify the key ID or the Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the CMK.
To get the key ID and key ARN for a CMK, use ListKeys or DescribeKey.
To verify that the alias is mapped to the correct CMK, use ListAliases.
The current and new CMK must be the same type (both symmetric or both
asymmetric), and they must have the same key usage (
SIGN_VERIFY). This restriction prevents errors in code that uses
aliases. If you must assign an alias to a different type of CMK, use
DeleteAlias to delete the old alias and CreateAlias to create a new
You cannot use
UpdateAlias to change an alias name. To change an alias
name, use DeleteAlias to delete the old alias and CreateAlias to create
a new alias.
Because an alias is not a property of a CMK, you can create, update, and delete the aliases of a CMK without affecting the CMK. Also, aliases do not appear in the response from the DescribeKey operation. To get the aliases of all CMKs in the account, use the ListAliases operation.
The CMK that you use for this operation must be in a compatible key state. For details, see How Key State Affects Use of a Customer Master Key in the AWS Key Management Service Developer Guide.
