Bulk Create IAM Roles and add as Targets when adding a Master Billing account

Turbonomic supports ingesting AWS data from already created IAM Role/Users for specific AWS Accounts. This is great for 1 or 2 AWS accounts, but for customers who have 100s of AWS accounts, this can be very tedious. I am aware AWS allows their use...
