    Description

      Description

      New command line flags

      The documentation must note that the user must ensure the temporary security credentials created by an AssumeRole request will be valid for the duration of the operation.

      Engineering Description
      Server 4.4 will add IAM role-based auth, with shell syntax like this (according to the design document):

      mongo --authenticationMechanism MONGODB-IAM --authenticationDatabase='$external' --iamAwsAccessKeyId=HEX_STRING --iamAwsSecretAccessKey=HEX_STRING
      

      The tools need to provide a similar capability.
