GetLoginProfile - Amazon Identity and Access Management
Services or capabilities described in Amazon Web Services documentation might vary by Region. To see the differences applicable to the China Regions, see Getting Started with Amazon Web Services in China.

GetLoginProfile

Retrieves the user name for the specified IAM user. A login profile is created when you create a password for the user to access the Amazon Web Services Management Console. If the user does not exist or does not have a password, the operation returns a 404 (NoSuchEntity) error.

If you create an IAM user with access to the console, the CreateDate reflects the date you created the initial password for the user.

If you create an IAM user with programmatic access, and then later add a password for the user to access the Amazon Web Services Management Console, the CreateDate reflects the initial password creation date. A user with programmatic access does not have a login profile unless you create a password for the user to access the Amazon Web Services Management Console.
