AlterCloudIdentity task

Changes the TLS identity file used for TLS communication within the cloud.

Syntax 1 (SQL)
CALL DBCloud.AlterCloudIdentity ( identity_file=identity_file [, optional-parameters ] )
Syntax 2 (Cloud Command utility)
dbcloudcmd run AlterCloudIdentity identity_file [ optional-parameters ]
  • identity_file

    The new identity file. (Required)

  • identity_password

    The password used to decrypt a private key. Specify NULL to leave the password unencrypted. The default is NULL.

  • host_list

    The hosts to update. Accepts a search query that identifies hosts. The search query can be a list of host names or IDs separated by semicolons (;), or a full search. The default is 'all:'.

  • cloud

    The cloud ID. The default is the current cloud.

Required privileges



This task replaces the identity file used throughout the cloud for TLS-encrypted communication, such as HTTPS.

You must replace TLS certificates before they expire.

  • identity_file

    The identity file consists of a public certificate, an optional signing certificate, and a private key that can be encrypted. If the private key is encrypted, provide the correct password to decrypt it.

  • host_list

    This parameter specifies hosts to deploy the new identity file to. This parameter can be used to exclude offline hosts. All hosts in the host_list must be running. To alter the TLS identity file when there are hosts that are not running, specify a host_list that excludes those hosts.

Hosts that are excluded from the host_list do not receive the new identity files and are no longer able to communicate with the cloud. Any hosts that are excluded from the host_list must have their identity files replaced manually.
