Options

--user-name (string)

The name of the user whose MFA device you want to resynchronize.

This parameter allows (per 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: _+=,.@-

--serial-number (string)

Serial number that uniquely identifies the MFA device.

--authentication-code-2 (string)

A subsequent authentication code emitted by the device.

--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.

--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.

Examples

To synchronize the specified MFA device with AWS servers

This example synchronizes the MFA device that is associated with the IAM user Bob and whose ARN is arn:aws:iam::123456789012:mfa/BobsMFADevice with an authenticator program that provided the two authentication codes:

aws iam resync-mfa-device --user-name Bob --serial-number arn:aws:iam::210987654321:mfa/BobsMFADevice --authentication-code-1 123456 --authentication-code-2 987654
