What is this?

AlertChimp manages users of cloud service like AWS and creates login session for limited time.

It allows to log and audit each login

It can add approval workflow for users - bob wants to use the cloud service as power user. He does not have that permission by default. He requests for an elevation of privilege for fixed time like 4 hours and the request goes to Alice and when she approves bobs account gets an elevation for 4 hours. He can login to with that role for 4 hours and then the privilege is revoked automatically.

It is possible to create Alerts based on request and logins. Alerts are delivered to phone or app.
