Overview

aws-vault is a tool for securely managing AWS credentials and authenticating multiple AWS accounts via assumeRole. aws-vault login is useful, but the browser cannot open multiple AWS accounts at the same time. This workflow creates a browser profile for each AWS account and opens a window for each profile. It allows you to open multiple AWS accounts at the same time.

How to use

aws [profile name]

The profile name corresponds to the profile name in $HOME/.aws/config. Internally launch the aws-vault login command and launch your browser with a separate profile.
