See also: AWS API Documentation

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.

Synopsis

  resync-mfa-device
--user-name <value>
--serial-number <value>
--authentication-code1 <value>
--authentication-code2 <value>
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]

Options

--user-name (string)

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

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: _+=,.@-

--serial-number (string)

Serial number that uniquely identifies the MFA device.

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: _+=,.@-

--authentication-code1 (string)

An authentication code emitted by the device.

The format for this parameter is a sequence of six digits.

--authentication-code2 (string)

A subsequent authentication code emitted by the device.

The format for this parameter is a sequence of six digits.

--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.

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.

Examples

To synchronize an MFA device

The following resync-mfa-device 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-code1 123456 \
    --authentication-code2 987654

This command produces no output.
