API Reference (API Version 2010-05-08)

User

Contains information about an IAM user entity.

This data type is used as a response element in the following actions:

Contents

Arn

The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) that identifies the user. For more information about ARNs and how to use ARNs in policies, see IAM Identifiers in the Using IAM guide.

Type: String

Length Constraints: Minimum length of 20. Maximum length of 2048.

Required: Yes

CreateDate

The date and time, in ISO 8601 date-time format, when the user was created.

Type: Timestamp

Required: Yes

PasswordLastUsed

The date and time, in ISO 8601 date-time format, when the user's password was last used to sign in to an AWS website. For a list of AWS websites that capture a user's last sign-in time, see the Credential Reports topic in the Using IAM guide. If a password is used more than once in a five-minute span, only the first use is returned in this field. If the field is null (no value) then it indicates that they never signed in with a password. This can be because:

  • The user never had a password.

  • A password exists but has not been used since IAM started tracking this information on October 20th, 2014.

A null does not mean that the user never had a password. Also, if the user does not currently have a password, but had one in the past, then this field contains the date and time the most recent password was used.

This value is returned only in the GetUser and ListUsers actions.
