Action Yes String Common Params. The value used for this API: Encrypt.
Version Yes String Common Params. The value used for this API: 2019-01-18.
Region No String Common Params. This parameter is not required for this API.
KeyId Yes String Globally unique ID of the CMK generated by calling the CreateKey API
Plaintext Yes String Encrypted plaintext data. This field must be Base64-encoded. The maximum size of the original data is 4 KB
EncryptionContext No String JSON string of key-value pair. If this parameter is specified, the same parameter needs to be provided when the Decrypt API is called. It is up to 1,024 characters

3. Output Parameters

Parameter Name Type Description
CiphertextBlob String Base64-encoded ciphertext, which is the encrypted information of the ciphertext and key. To get the plaintext, you need to pass in this field to the Decrypt API.
