    @chadnickbok Thank you very much for opening a PR for this, I think this is definitely
a good add to the connector's config options.
    Have you tested this new credential option in a AWS instance yet? I don't expect any problems,
but it would be good to have tested it out also. I'll also give it a test, but perhaps later

instances at runtime, and removes the need to explicitly create and assign credentials to

which will greatly improve the ease of deployment to Amazon EC2
