Response Structure

  • (dict) –

    • Entries (list) –

      Contains API key resources in your Amazon Web Services account. Details include API key name, allowed referers and timestamp for when the API key will expire.

      • (dict) –

        An API key resource listed in your Amazon Web Services account.

        • KeyName (string) –

          The name of the API key resource.

        • ExpireTime (datetime) –

          The timestamp for when the API key resource will expire, in ISO 8601 format: YYYY-MM-DDThh:mm:ss.sssZ.

        • Description (string) –

          The optional description for the API key resource.

        • Restrictions (dict) –

          API Restrictions on the allowed actions, resources, and referers for an API key resource.

          • AllowActions (list) –

            A list of allowed actions that an API key resource grants permissions to perform. You must have at least one action for each type of resource. For example, if you have a place resource, you must include at least one place action.

            The following are valid values for the actions.

            • Map actions

              • geo:GetMap* - Allows all actions needed for map rendering.

            • Place actions

              • geo:SearchPlaceIndexForText - Allows geocoding.

              • geo:SearchPlaceIndexForPosition - Allows reverse geocoding.

              • geo:SearchPlaceIndexForSuggestions - Allows generating suggestions from text.

              • GetPlace - Allows finding a place by place ID.

            • Route actions

              • geo:CalculateRoute - Allows point to point routing.

              • geo:CalculateRouteMatrix - Allows calculating a matrix of routes.


            You must use these strings exactly. For example, to provide access to map rendering, the only valid action is geo:GetMap* as an input to the list. ["geo:GetMap*"] is valid but ["geo:GetMapTile"] is not. Similarly, you cannot use ["geo:SearchPlaceIndexFor*"] - you must list each of the Place actions separately.

            • (string) –

          • AllowResources (list) –

            A list of allowed resource ARNs that a API key bearer can perform actions on.

            • The ARN must be the correct ARN for a map, place, or route ARN. You may include wildcards in the resource-id to match multiple resources of the same type.

            • The resources must be in the same partition, region, and account-id as the key that is being created.

            • Other than wildcards, you must include the full ARN, including the arn, partition, service, region, account-id and resource-id delimited by colons (:).

            • No spaces allowed, even with wildcards. For example, arn:aws:geo:region:account-id:map/ExampleMap*.

            For more information about ARN format, see Amazon Resource Names (ARNs).

            • (string) –

          • AllowReferers (list) –

            An optional list of allowed HTTP referers for which requests must originate from. Requests using this API key from other domains will not be allowed.


            • Contain only alphanumeric characters (A–Z, a–z, 0–9) or any symbols in this list $\-._+!*`(),;/?:@=&

            • May contain a percent (%) if followed by 2 hexadecimal digits (A-F, a-f, 0-9); this is used for URL encoding purposes.

            • May contain wildcard characters question mark (?) and asterisk (*). Question mark (?) will replace any single character (including hexadecimal digits). Asterisk (*) will replace any multiple characters (including multiple hexadecimal digits).

            • No spaces allowed. For example, https://example.com.

            • (string) –

        • CreateTime (datetime) –

          The timestamp of when the API key was created, in ISO 8601 format: YYYY-MM-DDThh:mm:ss.sssZ.

        • UpdateTime (datetime) –

          The timestamp of when the API key was last updated, in ISO 8601 format: YYYY-MM-DDThh:mm:ss.sssZ.

    • NextToken (string) –
