Support IAM Instance Role Permissions

The configuration for modules related to AWS provide the need for access key and secret key.
I want to define the permissions in the monitoring instance role and not explicitly manage a new set of access keys for grabbing metrics.

Is this supported and I'm just missing it?

I've not used any monitoring tool so far that required these explicitly defined, as most allowed not defining and just using the instance role permissions.

The support is going to be released for Filebeat an Metricbeat in v7.8:

Will this apply to all the beat utilities, metricbeat, filebeat and more? New to the ecosystem so not sure if this is a fix that will resolve for all tooling.
