Is it mandatory to give value of session_token: '<session_token>' to reaad AWS values

Hi All,
Trying to see how I can read the AWS monitoring values
from the link "https://www.elastic.co/guide/en/beats/metricbeat/7.4/metricbeat-module-aws.html" , thanks @Kaiyan_Sheng for sharing the docs with me
I could see the reference for session_token, is the entry of session_token necessary.
While configuring other third part tools with AWS, I have not used session_token at all, only
Password,Access key ID,Secret access key
is need to configure the tool for interacting with AWS.

Can we exclude the session_token entry in the yml file

thanks
Joseph John

Hi @Joseph_John, session_token is not required for running aws module. This is only for users need MFA for their AWS account. Feel free to remove the session_token line from the config and give it a try!

Also personally I prefer using credential_profile_name :smile:
