You can configure the AWS Command Line Interface to use a role by creating a profile for
the role in the
~/.aws/config file. The following example shows a role profile named
marketingadmin that is assumed by the
[profile marketingadmin] role_arn = arn:aws:iam::123456789012:role/marketingadmin source_profile = default
In this case, the
default profile is an IAM user with credentials and permission to
assume a role named
marketingadmin. To access the role, you create a named profile.
Instead of configuring this profile with credentials, you specify the
ARN of the role
and the name of the profile that has access to it.
