Regenerate a password for a user in a NASA SMCE account#
The AWS accounts associated with NASA’s Science Managed Cloud Environment have a 60 day password expiry policy. If someone on the team misses this deadline, we can actually reset passwords for each other!
Someone in the team with access logs into the AWS console of the appropriate project
Follow AWS’s user guide on resetting passwords for whoever’s 60 day window has elpased
In addition, a
AccountDisabledIAM Group will be automatically added to the user whenever their credentials expire, and this will show up as a “cannot change password” error when the user logs in next. So the user should also be removed from this group. You can do so from under the “Groups” tab in the AWS console when looking at the details of this user.
