How to activate or deactivate an access key for an IAM user?

Cloud Computing

Hi Team,

I have created an access key in AWS. I want to deactivate an access key for an IAM user from the command line. How can I do that?



Ans: The update-access-key command is used to deactivate the required access key (access key ID and secret access key) for the IAM user. Below is a representation of the command.

$ aws iam update-access-key --access-key-id AKIAIOSFODNN7EXAMPLE --status Inactive --user-name Ronnie
