[Feature request] Use OpenID Connect to authenticate with AWS S3 and Lambda apps

Using OpenID Connect (OIDC) to authenticate with Amazon Web Services is a more secure method of authentication with AWS IAM that relies on the OIDC protocol rather than sharing long-lived access tokens, which can be dangerous when leaked.

OIDC authentication is supported by many third-party services that interact with AWS, such as continuous integration providers Github Actions and CircleCI. It would be nice if Make also supported OIDC authentication for the Lambda and S3 apps so we didn’t have to risk exposing long-lived access tokens.

Here’s the documentation on OIDC authentication.

Thanks for making Make great!


Heya @maxrothman :wave:

I just wanted to let you know that we now have a brand new Idea exchange platform. You can log this and another suggestion you have in there so that you can easily monitor the status.

We made a post about this in the community so feel free to check that out for more information :nerd_face:
