Description

The Windows password is generated at boot by the EC2Config service or EC2Launch scripts (Windows Server 2016 and later). This usually only happens the first time an instance is launched. For more information, see EC2Config and EC2Launch in the Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud User Guide.

For the EC2Config service, the password is not generated for rebundled AMIs unless Ec2SetPassword is enabled before bundling.

The password is encrypted using the key pair that you specified when you launched the instance. You must provide the corresponding key pair file.

When you launch an instance, password generation and encryption may take a few minutes. If you try to retrieve the password before it's available, the output returns an empty string. We recommend that you wait up to 15 minutes after launching an instance before trying to retrieve the generated password.

Synopsis

# Creating a Request

Arguments

 :: Text gpdInstanceId -> GetPasswordData

Creates a value of GetPasswordData with the minimum fields required to make a request.

Use one of the following lenses to modify other fields as desired:

• gpdDryRun - Checks whether you have the required permissions for the action, without actually making the request, and provides an error response. If you have the required permissions, the error response is DryRunOperation . Otherwise, it is UnauthorizedOperation .
• gpdInstanceId - The ID of the Windows instance.

See: getPasswordData smart constructor.

# Request Lenses

Checks whether you have the required permissions for the action, without actually making the request, and provides an error response. If you have the required permissions, the error response is DryRunOperation . Otherwise, it is UnauthorizedOperation .

The ID of the Windows instance.

# Destructuring the Response

Arguments

 :: Int gpdrsResponseStatus -> Text gpdrsInstanceId -> Text gpdrsPasswordData -> UTCTime gpdrsTimestamp -> GetPasswordDataResponse

Creates a value of GetPasswordDataResponse with the minimum fields required to make a request.

Use one of the following lenses to modify other fields as desired:

• gpdrsResponseStatus - -- | The response status code.
• gpdrsInstanceId - The ID of the Windows instance.
• gpdrsPasswordData - The password of the instance. Returns an empty string if the password is not available.
• gpdrsTimestamp - The time the data was last updated.

See: getPasswordDataResponse smart constructor.
