Use GetCredentialReport with an Amazon SDK or command line tool

The following code examples show how to use GetCredentialReport.

Action examples are code excerpts from larger programs and must be run in context. You can see this action in context in the following code example:

Amazon CLI

To get a credential report

This example opens the returned report and outputs it to the pipeline as an array of text lines.

aws iam get-credential-report


{ "GeneratedTime": "2015-06-17T19:11:50Z", "ReportFormat": "text/csv" }

For more information, see Getting credential reports for your Amazon account in the Amazon IAM User Guide.

Tools for PowerShell

Example 1: This example opens the returned report and outputs it to the pipeline as an array of text lines. The first line is the header with comma-separated column names. Each successive row is the detail row for one user, with each field separated by commas. Before you can view the report, you must generate it with the Request-IAMCredentialReport cmdlet. To retrieve the report as a single string, use -Raw instead of -AsTextArray. The alias -SplitLines is also accepted for the -AsTextArray switch. For the full list of columns in the output consult the service API reference. Note that if you do not use -AsTextArray or -SplitLines, then you must extract the text from the .Content property using the .NET StreamReader class.
