Description

Switch roll history does not remain only five maximum on the AWS Management Console. This extension gives you show all of switch roles from a browse menu by loading your aws configuration.

## Configuration

Supports ~/.aws/config format and like ~/.aws/credentials

### Simple Configuration
The simplest configuration is for multiple **target roles** when you always intend to show the whole list. **Target roles** can be expressed with a `role_arn` or with both `aws_account_id` and `role_name`.

#### Optional parameters

* `color` - The RGB hex value (without the prefix '#') for the color of the header bottom border and around the current profile.
* `region` - Changing the region whenever switching the role if this parameter is specified.
* `image` - The uri of an image to use on top of any color attribute supplied. The color and image are not mutually exclusive.

```
[profile marketingadmin]
role_arn = arn:aws:iam::123456789012:role/marketingadmin
color = ffaaee

[anotheraccount]
aws_account_id = 987654321987
role_name = anotherrole
region=ap-northeast-1

[athirdaccount]
aws_account_id = 987654321988
role_name = athirdrole
image = "https://via.placeholder.com/150"
```

### Complex Configuration
More complex configurations involve multiple AWS accounts and/or organizations.

- A profile that has only `aws_account_id` (without a `role_name`) is defined as **base account**.

- **If your account is aliased, the alias will be shown in the role dropdown after 'Account:'. You MUST use that alias as the aws_account_id for the base account instead of the numerical account id or your configuration won't work as expected.**

- A **target role** is associated with a **base account** by the **target role** specifying a `source_profile`.

- As above, **target roles** can be expressed with a `role_arn` or with both `aws_account_id` and `role_name` and can optionally pass the optional parameters.

- If `target_role_name` is set in **base account**, the value is provided as the default role name for each **target roles**.

```
[organization1]
aws_account_id = your-account-alias

[Org1-Account1-Role1]
role_arn = arn:aws:iam::123456789012:role/Role1
source_profile = organization1

[Org1-Account1-Role2]
aws_account_id = 123456789012
role_name = Role2
source_profile = organization1

[Org1-Account2-Role1]
aws_account_id = 210987654321
role_name = Role1
source_profile = organization1

[baseaccount2]
aws_account_id = 000000000000

[Base2-Role1]
role_arn = arn:aws:iam::234567890123:role/Role1
source_profile = baseaccount2

[AnotherRole]
role_name = SomeOtherRole
aws_account_id = account-3-alias

;
; target_role_name example
;
[Org2-BaseAccount]
aws_account_id = 222200000000
target_role_name = Developer

[Org2-Account1-Developer]
aws_account_id = 222200001111
source_profile = Org2-BaseAccount

[Org2-Account2-Manager]
aws_account_id = 222200002222
role_name = Manager ; overrides target role name
source_profile = Org2-BaseAccount
```

If you sign-in a base account, target roles of the other base accounts are excluded.

The 'Show only matching roles' setting is for use with more sophisticated account structures where you're using AWS Organizations with multiple accounts along with AWS Federated Logins via something like Active Directory or Google GSuite. Common practice is to have a role in the master account that is allowed to assume a role of the same name in other member accounts. Checking this box means that if you're logged in to the 'Developer' role in the master account, only member accounts with a role_arn ending in 'role/Developer' will be shown. You won't see roles that your current role can't actually assume.
