public class ChangePasswordRequest : AmazonIdentityManagementServiceRequest

The ChangePasswordRequest type exposes the following members


Public Method ChangePasswordRequest()


Public Property NewPassword System.String

Gets and sets the property NewPassword.

The new password. The new password must conform to the AWS account's password policy, if one exists.

The regex pattern that is used to validate this parameter is a string of characters. That string can include almost any printable ASCII character from the space (\u0020) through the end of the ASCII character range (\u00FF). You can also include the tab (\u0009), line feed (\u000A), and carriage return (\u000D) characters. Any of these characters are valid in a password. However, many tools, such as the AWS Management Console, might restrict the ability to type certain characters because they have special meaning within that tool.

Public Property OldPassword System.String

Gets and sets the property OldPassword.

The IAM user's current password.


The following command changes the password for the current IAM user.

To change the password for your IAM user

var response = client.ChangePassword(new ChangePasswordRequest 
    NewPassword = "]35d/{pB9Fo9wJ",
    OldPassword = "3s0K_;xh4~8XXI"
