What is Amazon Cognito?

Amazon Cognito is a simple user identity and data synchronization service that helps you securely manage and synchronize app data for your users across their mobile devices. You can create unique identities for your users through a number of public login providers (Amazon, Facebook, and Google) and also support unauthenticated guests. You can save app data locally on users’ devices allowing your applications to work even when the devices are offline. With Amazon Cognito, you can save any kind of data in the AWS Cloud, such as app preferences or game state, without writing any backend code or managing any infrastructure. This means you can focus on creating great app experiences instead of having to worry about building and managing a backend solution to handle identity management, network state, storage, and sync.

Data synchronization solution with competitive pricing and good premium support
Pros and Cons
  • "The federation is one of the most efficient features as the pricing is competitive."
  • "The ease and simplicity of integration could be improved when using this solution. When using Okta, scope is a single endpoint with a parameter as a scope. In the Cognito for each scope, there is a separate endpoint."

What is our primary use case?

We use AWS Cognito for authentication and authorization of our system. We use Cognito alongside Okta. Because of the high cost of Okta, we have a hybrid model of both solutions. 

What is most valuable?

The federation is one of the most efficient features as the pricing is competitive.

What needs improvement?

The ease and simplicity of integration could be improved when using this solution. When using Okta, scope is a single endpoint with a parameter as a scope. In the Cognito for each scope, there is a separate endpoint.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

This is a stable solution.
