Description

Assume an IAM role

Description

The euare-assumerole utility obtains credentials for an IAM role and outputs them in the form of shellcode that sets environment variables that allow euca2ools commands to use them. Use it inside an eval command to make this process seamless:

Description

$ eval `euare-assumerole myrole`

Description

To stop using the role, use euare-releaserole(1).
