UpdateCertificate - AWS IoT
AWS services or capabilities described in AWS documentation might vary by Region. To see the differences applicable to the China Regions, see Getting Started with AWS services in China.

UpdateCertificate

Updates the status of the specified certificate. This operation is idempotent.

Certificates must be in the ACTIVE state to authenticate devices that use a certificate to connect to AWS IoT.

Within a few minutes of updating a certificate from the ACTIVE state to any other state, AWS IoT disconnects all devices that used that certificate to connect. Devices cannot use a certificate that is not in the ACTIVE state to reconnect.
