      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.
