1. API Description

Domain name for API request: cvm.tencentcloudapi.com

This API (AssociateInstancesKeyPairs) is used to bind a key pair to an instance.

  • When the public key of a key pair is written to the SSH configuration of the instance, you can log in to the instance through the private key of the key pair.
  • If the instance has been bound with a key, the old key will become invalid.
  • If the instance was originally logged in through a password, the password becomes unavailable after the key is bound to the instance.
  • Batch operations are supported. A maximum of 100 instances are allowed in a batch for each request. If there is any instance that is unsupported for the operation in the batch of instances, an error code is returned.

A maximum of 10 requests can be initiated per second for this API.

Note: This API supports Finance regions. If the common parameter Region is a Finance region, a domain name with the Finance region needs to be specified, for example: cvm.ap-shanghai-fsi.tencentcloudapi.com
