Updates the rotation policy of a secret.

After automatic rotation is enabled, Secrets Manager schedules the first automatic rotation by adding the preset rotation interval to the timestamp of the last rotation.

Limits: The UpdateSecretRotationPolicy operation cannot be used to update the rotation policy of standard secrets.

In this example, the rotation policy of the RdsSecret/Mysql5.4/MyCred secret is updated in the following way:

  • The EnableAutomaticRotation parameter is set to true, which indicates that automatic rotation is enabled.
  • The RotationInterval parameter is set to 30d, which indicates that the interval for automatic rotation is 30 days.


OpenAPI Explorer automatically calculates the signature value. For your convenience, we recommend that you call this operation in OpenAPI Explorer. OpenAPI Explorer dynamically generates the sample code of the operation for different SDKs.
