feature wish: specify IAM Role for CF execution

It would be very nice to have the option to specify an IAM Role for the Cloudformation execution.

At the moment it is only possible to create the CF stacks beforehand with the right IAM role so.

Hi Thomas,

I don't quite understand what's the feature you're going after, if you could elaborate a bit more I could create a Feature request for you. 

Alternatively, if you prefer, you can submit this feature request yourself through our portal

Hope that helps!

Hi @thomaslueder ,

Thank you for your feedback!


Do you mean this option?

--role-arn (string)

The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of an AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM) role that AWS CloudFormation assumes to create the stack. AWS CloudFormation uses the role's credentials to make calls on your behalf. AWS CloudFormation always uses this role for all future operations on the stack. As long as users have permission to operate on the stack, AWS CloudFormation uses this role even if the users don't have permission to pass it. Ensure that the role grants least privilege.

If you don't specify a value, AWS CloudFormation uses the role that was previously associated with the stack. If no role is available, AWS CloudFormation uses a temporary session that is generated from your user credentials.

Cheers,
Alex
