Pros and Cons

  • Strong integration with React.js and client-side applications
  • Easy to bridge Cognito identities with the rest of the AWS ecosystem
  • Easy to store user profile data directly in Cognito rather than having to build additional services/endpoints
  • Easy integration with AWS Lambda to extend and add sophistication to the service
  • Cognito, as with all AWS tools, feels like strange alien technology and it takes some time to understand why it exists and what needs it serves. If they called it the "Amazon User Profile and Sign-In Service" they might have greater adoption.
  • More examples are always good, especially around using Lambdas to query or extend the Cognito data store.

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.

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.
