Amazon Cognito

If you're already using AWS, there's no reason why you should implement your own password authentication or OAuth flows when you can use Cognito instead. It solves that work for you astoundingly well. You might be tempted by a tool like Okta for OAuth flows, but unless you already have a hard dependency on it then you should go with Cognito instead. It's much lighter weight, and it's much more pleasant to extend it with lambdas.
If you don't have any AWS in your stack, or it's very very important to you to stay platform-independent for your login flows, then those are reasons to avoid Cognito.

ManageEngine ADManager Plus

ADManager is perfectly suited for reducing the human error in account creation. The templates I needed to create for this were easy and I was done within a couple of days. I am happy to sign that account creation errors has been near zero since the roll out of this application. I look forward to using more of its functionality

Cons

Amazon Cognito

  • As such I do not find any major things as cons. However they can improve the documentation.
  • Sometimes additional customisation increases complexity. Most of those advanced features are not used frequently.

  • Reports can be hard to get what you need...sometimes they include fields that you don't need.
  • The automation feature broke after an update and our complex automations stopped working.

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

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.

When we first tried it, they helped us set up the templates and we got very good training from them. When we have a problem we just call or open a ticket and we get a reply right away. They are there to help.

Alternatives Considered

Amazon Cognito

When compared to Okta, I would say Cognito is still not up to pace with Okta. However, I guess they are constantly updating their features and will soon come with the new features. I would say Cogntio provides a better interface than Azure.

ManageEngine ADManager Plus

We did not research any other applications. ADManager Plus was the first that appeared in our search. After a demo with their sales team, it was apparent that this was the application we wanted. The price was perfect too. We ordered it right away and implemented it within a couple of weeks.

Return on Investment

Amazon Cognito

  • Amazon Cognito has had a positive impact on our business by allowing us to develop services that require user sign-up and sign-in more rapidly. Not only do we not need to build or maintain these features, but Cognito's implementation is also better than what we would be justified in building ourselves.
  • Amazon Cognito makes user management easy. This reduces the time we have to spend supporting users. Non-technical product managers can even use the AWS Console to manage users without requiring support from developers.
  • Amazon Cognito is likely more secure than what would be built in-house; a portion of our attack surface is now managed by Amazon.

ManageEngine ADManager Plus

  • This tool has reduced the time taken to on-board users.
  • This tool can do mass user creation and deletion.
  • Managing user changes is simplistic with this tool.
