Retrieves the details of a secret. It does not include the encrypted fields. Only those fields that are populated with a value are returned in the response.
[required] The identifier of the secret whose details you want to retrieve. You can specify either the Amazon Resource Name (ARN) or the friendly name of the secret.
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.
To run this command, you must have the following permissions:
To create a secret, use CreateSecret.
To modify a secret, use UpdateSecret.
To retrieve the encrypted secret information in a version of the secret, use GetSecretValue.
To list all of the secrets in the AWS account, use ListSecrets.
