What is AWS Extend Switch Roles?

AWS Extend Switch Roles is a Chrome extension that enhances the use of AWS Identity Access Management (IAM) for role-switching on the AWS Management Console. The extension is configured like a typical AWS config file, allowing you to set a broad range of role switch configurations. With the extension, switch role history is not limited to five but allows for complex configurations involving multiple AWS accounts and/or organizations. You can customize each role with colors for better visual management or set an automatic switch to a specific region.
