    ‚Äčkind=aws_account, ..., region=resoto-poweruser
    ‚Äčkind=aws_account, ..., account=poweruser-team
  2. Pipe the search command into the dump command:

    > search is(aws_account) with(empty, -[0:2]-> is(aws_iam_role) and name=AWSServiceRoleForSupport and role_assume_role_policy_document.Statement[*].{Effect=Allow and Principal.Service=support.amazonaws.com and Action="sts:AssumeRole"}) | dump
