If you do not specify a user name, IAM determines the user name implicitly based on the AWS access key ID signing the request. Because this action works for access keys under the AWS account, you can use this action to manage root credentials even if the AWS account has no associated users.
For information about limits on the number of keys you can create, see Limitations on IAM Entities in the IAM User Guide.
