Get password value

This method enables users to retrieve the password or SSH key of an existing account that is identified by its Account ID. It enables users to specify a reason and ticket ID, if required.


To retrieve a private SSH key account, see the Retrieve private SSH key account REST API.

The ability to retrieve credentials using this REST API is intended for human use only and is not recommended for applications or automated processes, where application-based authentication is required.
