Metricbeat authentication

is it possible to use aws iam roles instead of aws credentials (access key and secret key) for authentication. Can anyone please help me.

Please take a look at this PR: https://github.com/elastic/beats/pull/17658

Keep in mind that it has been just merged.

Thanks @mtojek, for the info.

Thanks @Kaiyan_Sheng, for the info. I was wondering whether we can use role_arn or not. But it seems, we can.

Thanks a lot for the info.

Hi @Kaiyan_Sheng,

Is it possible to use Metricbeat with open distro elastic with aws modules instead of xpack.

@ranjan300 I don't think so. x-pack requires at least basic license or trail.
