You can call this operation to query one or more key pairs.

Debugging

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.

Request parameters

Parameter Type Required Example Description
Action String Yes DescribeKeyPairs

The operation that you want to perform. Set the value to DescribeKeyPairs.

RegionId String Yes cn-hangzhou

The region ID of the key pair. You can call the DescribeRegions operation to query the most recent region list.

KeyPairName String No *SshKey*

The name of the key pair. You can use the asterisk (*) symbol as a wildcard in regular expressions to query key pairs by performing a fuzzy search. Sample patterns:

  • *SshKey: queries key pairs whose names end with SshKey, including the key pair named SshKey.
  • SshKey*: queries key pairs whose names start with SshKey, including the key pair named SshKey.
  • *SshKey*: queries key pairs whose names include SshKey, including the key pair named SshKey.
  • SshKey: queries the key pair named SshKey.
KeyPairFingerPrint String No ABC1234567

The fingerprint of the key pair. The message-digest algorithm 5 (MD5) is used based on the public key fingerprint format defined in RFC 4716. For more information, see RFC 4716.

PageNumber Integer No 1

The number of the page to return. Pages start from page 1.

Default: 1

PageSize Integer No 10

The number of entries to return on each page. Valid values: 1 to 50.

Default value: 10

Tag.N.Key String No TestKey

The key of tag N of the key pair. Valid values of N: 1 to 20.

If a single tag is specified to query resources, up to 1,000 resources that are bound with this tag can be displayed in the response. If multiple tags are specified to query resources, up to 1,000 resources that are bound with all these tags can be displayed in the response. To query more than 1,000 resources that are bound with specified tags, call the ListTagResources operation.

Tag.N.Value String No TestValue

The value of tag N of the key pair. Valid values of N: 1 to 20.

ResourceGroupId String No rg-amnhr7u7c7hj****

The ID of the resource group to which the key pair belongs. If this parameter is specified to query resources, up to 1,000 resources that belong to the specified resource group can be displayed in the response.
