Powershell set username/pwd for windows services

Hi Powershell experts,

Using Powershell, would like to set username/password for a list of services (service1, service2, service3, etc) in Windows 2016 servers.
Since, I will be invoking this from AWS CloudFormation, Is there a better way to handle the password pls?
after setting credentials on these services, we need to ensure it is running as well.  :)

please help

Thanks in advance

You should be using Managed Service Accounts or Group Managed Service Accounts for handling credentials of services.
