Gets information about the specified key version.

As a management operation, this call is subject to a Key Management limit that applies to the total number of requests across all management read operations. Key Management might throttle this call to reject an otherwise valid request when the total rate of management read operations exceeds 10 requests per second for a given tenancy.

The top level –endpoint parameter must be supplied for this operation.


oci kms management key-version get [OPTIONS]

Required Parameters

--key-id [text]

The OCID of the key.

--key-version-id [text]

The OCID of the key version.

Optional Parameters

--from-json [text]

Provide input to this command as a JSON document from a file using the file://path-to/file syntax.

The --generate-full-command-json-input option can be used to generate a sample json file to be used with this command option. The key names are pre-populated and match the command option names (converted to camelCase format, e.g. compartment-id –> compartmentId), while the values of the keys need to be populated by the user before using the sample file as an input to this command. For any command option that accepts multiple values, the value of the key can be a JSON array.

Options can still be provided on the command line. If an option exists in both the JSON document and the command line then the command line specified value will be used.

For examples on usage of this option, please see our “using CLI with advanced JSON options” link:

Example using required parameter

Copy and paste the following example into a JSON file, replacing the example parameters with your own.

    oci kms management key create --generate-param-json-input key-shape > key-shape.json

Copy the following CLI commands into a file named Run the command by typing “bash” and replacing the example parameters with your own.

Please note this sample will only work in the POSIX-compliant bash-like shell. You need to set up the OCI configuration and appropriate security policies before trying the examples.

    export compartment_id=<substitute-value-of-compartment_id> #
    export display_name=<substitute-value-of-display_name> #
    export key_id=<substitute-value-of-key_id> #

    key_id=$(oci kms management key create --compartment-id $compartment_id --display-name $display_name --endpoint --key-shape file://key-shape.json --query --raw-output)

    key_version_id=$(oci kms management key-version create --key-id $key_id --query --raw-output)

    oci kms management key-version get --key-id $key_id --key-version-id $key_version_id
