Score 8 out of 10
Vetted Review

Pros and Cons

  • It is really easy to set up signup and sign-in for mobile and web applications which makes overall development faster, helps focus more on business.
  • It supports multi factor authentication and standard encryption algorithm. This helps tighten the security without investing a lot of time.
  • It supports access management via Oauth 2.0 which makes authorization job easy.
  • User can use Google, Facebook and Microsoft AD services for sign-in purpose helps reducing user efforts to register or signup within the application.
  • 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.

A Learning Curve, but Great for Serverless

Pros and Cons

  • Amazon Cognito allows you to build multi-factor authentication with a few clicks.
  • Cognito supports sign-in with social identity providers like Facebook and Google.
  • It is easy to manage Cognito users through the Console.
  • It is easy to customize sign-up and sign-in workflows by integrating with AWS Lambda.
  • 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.

Pros and Cons

  • Can easily manage the users.
  • Very good UI design helps manage the users list efficiently.
  • Security groups and roles provides very efficient security.
  • Maybe they can improve more on the grouping part.
  • All the users come under the same Cognito User Pool. If the IAM can be restricted to per group level of User Pools, then that would be really helpful.
