reset-user-password

Description

Resets the password for any user in your AWS Managed Microsoft AD or Simple AD directory.

You can reset the password for any user in your directory with the following exceptions:

  • For Simple AD, you cannot reset the password for any user that is a member of either the Domain Admins or Enterprise Admins group except for the administrator user.
  • For AWS Managed Microsoft AD, you can only reset the password for a user that is in an OU based off of the NetBIOS name that you typed when you created your directory. For example, you cannot reset the password for a user in the AWS Reserved OU. For more information about the OU structure for an AWS Managed Microsoft AD directory, see What Gets Created in the AWS Directory Service Administration Guide .

Synopsis

  reset-user-password
--directory-id <value>
--user-name <value>
--new-password <value>
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]

Options

--directory-id (string)

Identifier of the AWS Managed Microsoft AD or Simple AD directory in which the user resides.

--user-name (string)

The user name of the user whose password will be reset.

--new-password (string)

The new password that will be reset.

--cli-input-json (string) Performs service operation based on the JSON string provided. The JSON string follows the format provided by --generate-cli-skeleton. If other arguments are provided on the command line, the CLI values will override the JSON-provided values. It is not possible to pass arbitrary binary values using a JSON-provided value as the string will be taken literally.

--generate-cli-skeleton (string) Prints a JSON skeleton to standard output without sending an API request. If provided with no value or the value input, prints a sample input JSON that can be used as an argument for --cli-input-json. If provided with the value output, it validates the command inputs and returns a sample output JSON for that command.
