resync-mfa-device

Description

Synchronizes the specified MFA device with its IAM resource object on the Amazon Web Services servers.

For more information about creating and working with virtual MFA devices, see Using a virtual MFA device in the IAM User Guide .

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 | --cli-input-yaml]
[--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 | --cli-input-yaml (string) Reads arguments from the JSON string provided. The JSON string follows the format provided by --generate-cli-skeleton. If other arguments are provided on the command line, those 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. This may not be specified along with --cli-input-yaml.

--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. Similarly, if provided yaml-input it will print a sample input YAML that can be used with --cli-input-yaml. 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

Note

To use the following examples, you must have the AWS CLI installed and configured. See the Getting started guide in the AWS CLI User Guide for more information.

Unless otherwise stated, all examples have unix-like quotation rules. These examples will need to be adapted to your terminal’s quoting rules. See Using quotation marks with strings in the AWS CLI User Guide .

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.
