Registers a role-based profile to be used with SAML authentication. The profile contains details of the role to be assumed when AWS credentials are requested based on the role and a reference to a SAML endpoint profile containing details of the endpoint to be called to authenticate the user.

If user identity information is not supplied then the identity of the logged-in user will be used when authenticaton is performed against the endpoint referenced in the SAML endpoint profile. If identity is provided, no password information is stored in the role profile and the user must supply the password for the identity prior to authentication with the endpoint.

Optional. By default the identity of the logged-in user will be used when authentication is performed - the user will not be prompted to supply a password. By supplying a custom identity for this parameter, the user will be prompted to supply the password for the identity prior to authentication.

Type: System.String

Set for profiles intended to be used in regions where a region-specific STS endpoint must be used (eg cn-north-1). If left empty/null, the global endpoint will be used when credentials are obtained for this profile.
