EUARE-ASSUMEROLE(1) User Commands EUARE-ASSUMEROLE(1)

euare-assumerole - Assume an IAM role

euare-assumerole [-d SECONDS] [--session-name PATH] [-c | -s]
[--policy-content POLICY_CONTENT | --policy-document FILE]
[--external-id STR] [--mfa-serial MFA] [--mfa-code CODE] [-U URL] [--region USER@REGION] [-I KEY_ID] [-S KEY] [--security-token TOKEN] [--debug] [--debugger] [--version] [-h] ROLE

Assume an IAM role

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:

$ eval `euare-assumerole myrole`

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