You can change the logon password of a RAM user for account security.

Background information

If you enable console logon for a RAM user for the first time, you must configure a logon password for the RAM user. For more information, see Enable console logon for a RAM user. If you want to change the password later, you can perform the steps that are described in this topic.


  1. Log on to the RAM console by using your Alibaba Cloud account.
  2. In the left-side navigation pane, choose Identities > Users.
  3. On the Users page, click the username of a specific RAM user.
  4. On the Authentication tab of the user details page, click Modify Logon Settings.
  5. In the Set Logon Password section of the Modify Logon Settings panel, reset the logon password.
    • If you select Keep Current Password Unchanged, the password remains unchanged.
    • If you select Automatically Regenerate Default Password and click OK, the system generates a logon password. You must save the generated password for subsequent use.
    • If you select Reset Custom Password, enter a new password and click OK.
      Note The new password must meet the complexity requirements. For more information, see Configure a password policy for RAM users.
  6. Click OK.
    Note If your Alibaba Cloud account allows RAM users to manage their passwords, the RAM users can change their passwords in the console.
