* generated from the local AWS credentials stored in environment variables:
* AWS_ACCESS_KEY_ID
* AWS_SECRET_ACCESS_KEY
* AWS_SESSION_TOKEN
*
* Steps:
* 1. Create a JSON object
* session = JSON.stringify({
* sessionId: <access key>,
* sessionKey: <secret access key},
* sessionToken: <session token>
* })
* 2. Send GET request to the following URL
* https://signin.aws.amazon.com/federation?Action=getSigninToken&Session=<session JSON object from the step above>
* 3. Use the "SigninToken" value returned by the above url to generate the console login URL
* https://signin.aws.amazon.com/federation?Action=login&Destination=<https://console.aws.amazon.com/>&SigninToken=<SigninToken retrieved in step 2>
