AWS discovery sensor to support AWS temporary credentials, not just long term credentials

There are 2 types of credentials available when accessing AWS' public URL - temporary, and long term.

My organisation, in consultation with AWS, have implemented an AWS security policy that only allows the use of temporary access credentials.
Since TADDM does not support this type of crednetial, it has resulted in TADDM not being able to discovery AWS devices.
This has greatly impacted the relevance of the CMDB data within my organisation, as it is not able to identify the infrastrcuture supporting some of our most critical business applications.

My organisation is not really one to establish configurations that are not following what is considered best practice. So I would be assuming that this issue is affecting a number of other organisations utilising TADDM and AWS.

Can you please consider developing the AWS discovery sensor so that it also supports temporary credentials?
