Setting console display name when using signin.aws.amazon.com/federation
According to this Jeff Barr [blog post](https://aws.amazon.com/blogs/aws/identity-federation-to-aws-management-console/), it is possible to set the username in the upper right of the AWS console when federating in via the signin.aws.amazon.com/federation endpoint. It never states what query parameter to use to set it. I've tried DisplayName, Name and display_name, but none seem to work, the display name is always set to role/rolesession @ aws account id/alias. The [signin.aws.amazon.com/switchrole](https://docs.aws.amazon.com/IAM/latest/UserGuide/id_roles_use_switch-role-console.html) api allows you to set display_name and color. Can someone with access to the code see whether it is possible to set the display name with the federation endpoint and what query parameter to use to set it?
How to contact AWS Academy Instructors at Appalachian State University
I am interested in attaining information about AWS Academy from a human that is at ASU in Boone NC. I have seen the list [here](https://aws.amazon.com/training/awsacademy/member-list/) but have found no way to move forward with learning more about the program. I assumed [AWS Knowledge Center](https://aws.amazon.com/premiumsupport/knowledge-center/) might supply such information, thought that maybe my account support might lead me to a learning track more verbose than skill builder, but am still searching for contact information that will lead to a physical person to talk to. Any help would be great. Thank you ahead of time.

Cloudfront console is a blank page on mobile and iPad
I have an AWS cloudfront distribution. For the past 2 days, if I log in to AWS and then click “Cloudfront” under services, the page is blank. This is if I check on my iPad Pro or iPhone 13. I have tried using safari and chrome on both, and it is still a blank screen. I just tried chrome on my desktop and it works fine. What do I do?
Server Error During Password Recovery via Workspaces Windows Client
Hello, I'm trying to recover a password for a workspace I created previously. I'm using Amazon Workspaces Windows Desktop client and the password recovery form falls into a loop of the "Server Error There was an error with your request. Please try again later." message. I'm pretty sure that my username is correct. The username contains uppercase letters. I also tried typing username with lowercase letters but it did not work. Restarting the workspace through the AWS web console did not resolve the issue. Please kindly assist me. Thanks, Ismet

I always used Google SMTP service but recently they discontinued their basic setup and my aplication is not capable of using it with higher level of security.
