Description

Changes the password for the specified IAM user.

Usage

1
iam_update_login_profile(UserName, Password, PasswordResetRequired)

Arguments

UserName

[required] The name of the user whose password you want to update.

This parameter allows (through its regex pattern) a string of characters consisting of upper and lowercase alphanumeric characters with no spaces. You can also include any of the following characters: \_+=,[email protected]

Password

The new password for the specified IAM user.

The regex pattern used to validate this parameter is a string of characters consisting of the following:

  • Any printable ASCII character ranging from the space character (U+0020) through the end of the ASCII character range

  • The printable characters in the Basic Latin and Latin-1 Supplement character set (through U+00FF)

  • The special characters tab (U+0009), line feed (U+000A), and carriage return (U+000D)

However, the format can be further restricted by the account administrator by setting a password policy on the AWS account. For more information, see UpdateAccountPasswordPolicy.

PasswordResetRequired

Allows this new password to be used only once by requiring the specified IAM user to set a new password on next sign-in.

Details

IAM users can change their own passwords by calling ChangePassword. For more information about modifying passwords, see Managing Passwords in the IAM User Guide.
