Overall Satisfaction with Amazon Cognito

We use Amazon Cognito to simplify and forget to build from scratch the sign-in and log-in process in our applications. With Amazon Cognito you do not need to build the login process, sign-in mechanism, and all that stuff that is always the same one application after another, these constructs are already there to be used.
  • The sign-in process.
  • The login process.
  • Give permissions to users to use AWS services.
  • The Cognito documentation could have more easy to do examples of integrating it into the app.
  • The interface to administer users and groups could have more visual appealing.
  • Simplicity of the configuration.
  • It offers several options to login besides user/pass combination.
  • Think about how many hours could take to build a solid solution to managed users, groups, credentials, and permissions; all that hard work is already done when you use Cognito.

If you have a simple app or any app that needs to manage users; you can delegate this to Amazon Cognito. You don't need to waste time thinking and building the sign-in process, where to store users, groups, credentials, etc. Cognito does all that for you, and if you want to go further you can also use Federate Services.
