If the account password policy allows them to, IAM users can change their own passwords using the change-password command. Store the password in a secure place. If the password is lost, it cannot be recovered, and you must create a new one using the create-login-profile command. For more information, see Managing Passwords in the Using IAM guide.

You could use the GetLoginProfile API request to determine if an IAM user has a login profile or not. If there is no login profile associated with the user this request will return a 404 response. If there is no login profile associated with the user this request will return a 404 response.

The get-login-profile command can be used to verify that an IAM user has a password. The command returns a NoSuchEntity error if no password is defined for the user. You cannot view a password using this command. If the password is lost, you can reset the password (update-login-profile) for the user.

Follow the steps outlined in the Create an IAM User chapter to create an IAM user in another AWS account and take a note of the Access key ID and Secret access key. To configure the new profile in your AWS CLI use: $ aws configure --profile newAccount Where newAccount is the name of the new profile you are creating.
