Ability to pre-populate username and password fields


The console login allows to be pre-populated with the Account ID (via https://<ACCOUNT-ID> but not with the username and/or password. I am conscious that this might have security implications but I am often using the AWS Sandbox of a popular AWS learning platform which uses randomly generated usernames and passwords for their logins and it would be great if one could use a URL like https://<ACCOUNT-ID> where the username 123 would then be placed in the "IAM user name" form field, similar to the account ID.

I will share it with you for your reference.

I use 1 password to login to the management console. [1]

With 1 password, you can enter your Account ID, username, password, etc. with 1 click.
However, please note that there is a fee for 1 password.

There is another way to log in using scraping, which I found in an article in Japanese. [2]

I hope this is helpful.
