Certificate Management Service:UpdateCACertificateStatus

Last Updated:Dec 06, 2023

Changes the status of a root certificate authority (CA) certificate or an intermediate CA certificate from ISSUE to REVOKE.

Operation Description

After a CA certificate is created, the CA certificate is in the ISSUE state by default. You can call the UpdateCACertificateStatus operation to change the status of a CA certificate from ISSUE to REVOKE. If a CA certificate is in the ISSUE state, the CA certificate can be used to issue certificates. If a CA certificate is in the REVOKE state, the CA certificate cannot be used to issue certificates, and the certificates that are issued from the CA certificate become invalid.

Before you call this operation, make sure that you have created a root CA by calling the [CreateRootCACertificate] operation or an intermediate CA certificate by calling the [CreateSubCACertificate] operation.


You can call this operation up to 10 times per second per account. If the number of the calls per second exceeds the limit, throttling is triggered. As a result, your business may be affected. We recommend that you take note of the limit when you call this operation.


You can run this interface directly in OpenAPI Explorer, saving you the trouble of calculating signatures. After running successfully, OpenAPI Explorer can automatically generate SDK code samples.
