Well Suited
  1. B2C mobile and web apps with a high number of users.
  2. Cheaper and cost-effective.
  3. If the other pieces of the infra are already using AWS services like Lambda, S3, Pinpoint, etc.
Not Suited For:
  1. Advanced use-cases (Biometrics based authentication) Email, and other MFA channels.
  2. For any use-cases needing SCIM.
  3. Customized flows of SSO, and MFA will need a layer on Lambda and other AWS services.

Cons
Amazon AWS
  • Amazon Cognito has a bit of a learning curve. You need to learn its concepts and terminology. The documentation does not describe some topics comprehensively.
  • Some Console screens would benefit from improved search and filtering options.
  • When another AWS product (e.g., SageMaker) configures Cognito on your behalf, it is not clear what you're getting. For example, the expiration of a temporary password was configured but never communicated.

All the features AWS Cognito offers gives the user the options they need without making it too complicated. Your customers will be happy. On the administration site usability is also great. After a small learning curve, you can setup Cognito for your usage

Support Rating
Amazon AWS
AWS Support overall is poor. Your main resources are trainings and the docs, and the docs can be very confusing. Using Cognito well involves having a developer learn it deeply and help support your team in understanding it. That said, Cognito's competitors also have dismal support and even worse documentation, so while this isn't a strength for Cognito it may still be the frontrunner here.

Lightning Tools DeliverPoint Screenshots

Screenshot of CONTEXTUAL SHAREPOINT PERMISSION REPORTING
SharePoint Permissions are not just the responsibility of IT. Business Users (Content Owners) can create sites, lists, libraries and of course list and library content. The business user is capable of sharing the content with internal users, but perhaps also external users. Sharing such content can result in users gaining permissions to sites or content not intended to be shared. For example, if a site is shared, the user who the site is shared with becomes a member of the members group by default. That members group may have Edit permissions to other sites or content elsewhere within the site collection. DeliverPoint gives visibility of such permissions to support better SharePoint permission decisions from within the Site, List or Library itself.Screenshot of GRANULAR SHAREPOINT CONTENT PERMISSION REPORTS
The DeliverPoint Discover Permissions report displays a full transparent report of all users that have permissions to the site, list/library or item. This displays what permissions each account has to the selected object, as well as how the permissions were assigned. Filter can be used for each user to check for duplicate permissions, filter by Permission Level to see which users are granted each permission level, and also filter by the ‘Permissioned Via’ column to see who has received permissions via a particular SharePoint, Microsoft 365 Group, or Azure AD Security group. The Discover Permissions report can be executed against multiple documents or items, lists and within the site or subsites.Screenshot of EXTERNAL SHARING LINKS REPORTING AND MANAGEMENT
Within SharePoint, users can share links with anyone, internal users and external users. DeliverPoint provides an External Sharing Links report that can be used within a site or across sites. The user can see who shared the link, when they shared the link, and optionally remove the link if it’s required.Screenshot of REPORT AND MANAGE PERMISSIONS FROM WITHIN MICROSOFT TEAMS
DeliverPoint is also available within Microsoft Teams. Team Owners can produce Microsoft Teams Permission reports within their Teams Channels and across Private Channels. The reports provide confidence and assurance that permissions are set correctly and that sharing isn’t out of control. Changes to permissions can be made contextually within a Team or centrally across multiple Teams should permissions need to be removed or managed.Screenshot of MANAGE SHAREPOINT PERMISSIONS
Using DeliverPoint, Site Owners, Site Collection Administrators and Tenant Administrators can manage permissions across the objects that they have Full Control to. Within organizations, users change roles, leave organizations, or join organizations. Making permission changes to accounts to reflect these changes is time consuming. DeliverPoint can be used to simply select the scope to change, and perform the change as one operation. The operations include Transfer, Delete, Copy or Revoke Permissions.Screenshot of UNIQUE PERMISSION REPORTING
The DeliverPoint Unique Permissions Report enables Site Collection Administrators or SharePoint Administrators to view the permissions assigned to a specific user account or group throughout site collections. The report includes all Microsoft 365 Groups, SharePoint Groups and Active Directory Security Groups that the user is a member of. A list of Site Permissions, List Permissions and Item Permissions that the user has been assigned permissions to are listed, allowing  the permissions to be removed or transferred if they are incorrect.
