We've made improvements to the AWS sign-in page for users who federate to the AWS Management Console using SAML (Security Assertion Markup Language).
The sign-in page now displays: roles grouped by AWS accounts, account aliases (if you'd set an alias for your account), and role name instead of role ARN (Amazon Resource Name). This makes role selection easier, especially when you have multiple roles in more than one account.
For more information, see Easier Role Selection for SAML-based Single Sign-On on the AWS Security Blog.
