Description

Changes the password of the IAM user who is calling this operation. The AWS account root user password is not affected by this operation.

Usage

1
iam_change_password(OldPassword, NewPassword)

Arguments

OldPassword

[required] The IAM user's current password.

NewPassword

[required] The new password. The new password must conform to the AWS account's password policy, if one exists.

The regex pattern that is used to validate this parameter is a string of characters. That string can include almost any printable ASCII character from the space (U+0020) through the end of the ASCII character range (U+00FF). You can also include the tab (U+0009), line feed (U+000A), and carriage return (U+000D) characters. Any of these characters are valid in a password. However, many tools, such as the AWS Management Console, might restrict the ability to type certain characters because they have special meaning within that tool.

Details

To change the password for a different user, see UpdateLoginProfile. For more information about modifying passwords, see Managing Passwords in the IAM User Guide.
