CreateTrustAnchor - IAM Roles Anywhere
Services or capabilities described in Amazon Web Services documentation might vary by Region. To see the differences applicable to the China Regions, see Getting Started with Amazon Web Services in China (PDF).


Creates a trust anchor to establish trust between IAM Roles Anywhere and your certificate authority (CA). You can define a trust anchor as a reference to an Amazon Private Certificate Authority (Amazon Private CA) or by uploading a CA certificate. Your Amazon workloads can authenticate with the trust anchor using certificates issued by the CA in exchange for temporary Amazon credentials.


Amazon Private Certificate Authority is not supported in your region. It cannot be used as a reference to define a trust anchor.

Required permissions: rolesanywhere:CreateTrustAnchor.
