Look at the ‘users’ cookbook. It allows managing user passwords as well as SSH keys and other user attributes.

Thanks drew,
Through cookbook we can set like this.But I need to change password once i login to vm .
IIn cookbook case first we need to install chef and then only we run that cookbook. So how is this possible to change password once login without cookbook from remote.

So, to clarify:

Is it that you want Chef to create a user with a password, but when that
user first logs in for them to be forced to manually change their password?
Or, do you want Chef to change their password if they’ve logged in
successfully once? I assume that it’s the first case; seems like a more
likely use-case. What operating system is on the VM?

I suspect the answer to this is going to involve some sort of execute
https://docs.chef.io/resource_execute.html call to chage
http://linux.die.net/man/1/chage, but I’d need a bit more information to
be sure.
