Creates a new key version.


googlekms.createVersion(keyName, [callback])


The 'callback' parameter specifies a function which will be called when the operation completes (or an error is encountered). If the 'callback' parameter is not specified, then the method will block and will not return until the operation completes (or an error is encountered).

The callback for this method is defined as:

function(err, data){ }

'err' is the error that occurred. If there was no error, then 'err' is 'null'.

'data' is the value returned by the method.

'err' has 2 properties which hold detailed information:



This method creates a new version of the key specified by KeyName and returns the Id of the version. Note that, for symmetric keys, the new version will not become the primary version; SetPrimaryVersion can be used to update the primary version if desired.

The key's current KeyTemplateAlgorithm and KeyTemplateProtectionLevel are used to create the key version. To change the key's template algorithm prior to creating a new version, use the UpdateKey method.
