I am using version 2 of the cli. trying to run the aws configure command, downloaded the csv file for a new user and get the error 'Expected header "User Name" not found. i finally got a csv download file that looks like its in the right format. but still no good. tried pointing at the download directory, still no good. The command looks like this:

aws configure import --csv C:\Users\system\Downloads\new_user_credentials-1.csv

    aws configure import --csv C:\Users\system\Downloads\new_user_credentials-1.csv
    Ans:
    The exported CSV from AWS Console did not include the User Name column.
    The solution is to edit the CSV file and add the User Name column as follows:

    User Name,Access key ID,Secret access key
    yourUserName,yourKeyId,yourSecretAccessKey

    Then run the command with the "file://" prefix to the file path.
    You should expect to see the successful output.

    $ aws configure import --csv file://your_credentials.csv
