RetireGrant - AWS Key Management Service
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.

RetireGrant

Deletes a grant. Typically, you retire a grant when you no longer need its permissions. To identify the grant to retire, use a grant token, or both the grant ID and a key identifier (key ID or key ARN) of the customer master key (CMK). The CreateGrant operation returns both values.

This operation can be called by the retiring principal for a grant, by the grantee principal if the grant allows the RetireGrant operation, and by the AWS account (root user) in which the grant is created. It can also be called by principals to whom permission for retiring a grant is delegated. For details, see Retiring and revoking grants in the AWS Key Management Service Developer Guide.

For detailed information about grants, including grant terminology, see Using grants in the AWS Key Management Service Developer Guide . For examples of working with grants in several programming languages, see Programming grants.

Cross-account use: Yes. You can retire a grant on a CMK in a different AWS account.

Required permissions::Permission to retire a grant is determined primarily by the grant. For details, see Retiring and revoking grants in the AWS Key Management Service Developer Guide.
