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 (PDF).

iam-user-unused-credentials-check

Checks if your Amazon Identity and Access Management (IAM) users have passwords or active access keys that have not been used within the specified number of days you provided. The rule is NON_COMPLIANT if there are inactive accounts not recently used.

Note

Re-evaluating this rule within 4 hours of the first evaluation will have no effect on the results.

Note

The AWS::IAM::User resource type can only be recorded by Amazon Config in Regions where Amazon Config was available before February 2022. AWS::IAM::User cannot be recorded in Regions supported by Amazon Config after February 2022.

Additionally, if you have selected to record AWS::IAM::User in at least one Region, periodic rules such as this rule that report compliance on AWS::IAM::User will run evaluations on AWS::IAM::User in all Regions where the periodic rule is added, even if you have not enabled the recording of AWS::IAM::User in the Region where the periodic rule was added.

You should only deploy this rule to one of the supported Regions to avoid unnecessary evaluations and API throttling. Not enabling the recording of global IAM resource types will not prevent this rule from running evaluations, if you have enable the recording of global IAM resource types in another Region. To avoid unnecessary evaluations, you should limit the deployment of this rule to one Region.
