CognitoIdentity

Table of Contents

Client

class CognitoIdentity.Client

A low-level client representing Amazon Cognito Identity:

client = session.create_client('cognito-identity')

These are the available methods:

can_paginate(operation_name)

Check if an operation can be paginated.

Parameters
operation_name (string) -- The operation name. This is the same name as the method name on the client. For example, if the method name is create_foo, and you'd normally invoke the operation as client.create_foo(**kwargs), if the create_foo operation can be paginated, you can use the call client.get_paginator("create_foo").
Returns
True if the operation can be paginated, False otherwise.
create_identity_pool(**kwargs)

Creates a new identity pool. The identity pool is a store of user identity information that is specific to your AWS account. The limit on identity pools is 60 per account. The keys for SupportedLoginProviders are as follows:

  • Facebook: graph.facebook.com
  • Google: accounts.google.com
  • Amazon: www.amazon.com
  • Twitter: api.twitter.com
  • Digits: www.digits.com

You must use AWS Developer credentials to call this API.

get_open_id_token_for_developer_identity(**kwargs)

Registers (or retrieves) a Cognito IdentityId and an OpenID Connect token for a user authenticated by your backend authentication process. Supplying multiple logins will create an implicit linked account. You can only specify one developer provider as part of the Logins map, which is linked to the identity pool. The developer provider is the "domain" by which Cognito will refer to your users.

You can use GetOpenIdTokenForDeveloperIdentity to create a new identity and to link new logins (that is, user credentials issued by a public provider or developer provider) to an existing identity. When you want to create a new identity, the IdentityId should be null. When you want to associate a new login with an existing authenticated/unauthenticated identity, you can do so by providing the existing IdentityId . This API will create the identity in the specified IdentityPoolId .

You must use AWS Developer credentials to call this API.

Request Syntax

response = client.get_open_id_token_for_developer_identity(
    IdentityPoolId='string',
    IdentityId='string',
    Logins={
        'string': 'string'
    },
    TokenDuration=123
)
Parameters
  • IdentityPoolId (string) --

    [REQUIRED]

    An identity pool ID in the format REGION:GUID.

  • IdentityId (string) -- A unique identifier in the format REGION:GUID.
  • Logins (dict) --

    [REQUIRED]

    A set of optional name-value pairs that map provider names to provider tokens. Each name-value pair represents a user from a public provider or developer provider. If the user is from a developer provider, the name-value pair will follow the syntax "developer_provider_name": "developer_user_identifier" . The developer provider is the "domain" by which Cognito will refer to your users; you provided this domain while creating/updating the identity pool. The developer user identifier is an identifier from your backend that uniquely identifies a user. When you create an identity pool, you can specify the supported logins.

    • (string) --
      • (string) --
  • TokenDuration (integer) -- The expiration time of the token, in seconds. You can specify a custom expiration time for the token so that you can cache it. If you don't provide an expiration time, the token is valid for 15 minutes. You can exchange the token with Amazon STS for temporary AWS credentials, which are valid for a maximum of one hour. The maximum token duration you can set is 24 hours. You should take care in setting the expiration time for a token, as there are significant security implications: an attacker could use a leaked token to access your AWS resources for the token's duration.
Return type

dict

get_paginator(operation_name)

Create a paginator for an operation.

Parameters
operation_name (string) -- The operation name. This is the same name as the method name on the client. For example, if the method name is create_foo, and you'd normally invoke the operation as client.create_foo(**kwargs), if the create_foo operation can be paginated, you can use the call client.get_paginator("create_foo").
Raises OperationNotPageableError
Raised if the operation is not pageable. You can use the client.can_paginate method to check if an operation is pageable.

lookup_developer_identity(**kwargs)

Retrieves the IdentityID associated with a DeveloperUserIdentifier or the list of DeveloperUserIdentifier s associated with an IdentityId for an existing identity. Either IdentityID or DeveloperUserIdentifier must not be null. If you supply only one of these values, the other value will be searched in the database and returned as a part of the response. If you supply both, DeveloperUserIdentifier will be matched against IdentityID . If the values are verified against the database, the response returns both values and is the same as the request. Otherwise a ResourceConflictException is thrown.

You must use AWS Developer credentials to call this API.

response = client.lookup_developer_identity(
    IdentityPoolId='string',
    IdentityId='string',

)
Parameters
  • IdentityPoolId (string) --

    [REQUIRED]

    An identity pool ID in the format REGION:GUID.

  • IdentityId (string) -- A unique identifier in the format REGION:GUID.
  • DeveloperUserIdentifier (string) -- A unique ID used by your backend authentication process to identify a user. Typically, a developer identity provider would issue many developer user identifiers, in keeping with the number of users.

For example, let's say you make a request with MaxResults set to 10, and there are 20 matches in the database. The service will return a pagination token as a part of the response. This token can be used to call the API again and get results starting from the 11th match.

merge_developer_identities(**kwargs)

Merges two users having different IdentityId s, existing in the same identity pool, and identified by the same developer provider. You can use this action to request that discrete users be merged and identified as a single user in the Cognito environment. Cognito associates the given source user (SourceUserIdentifier ) with the IdentityId of the DestinationUserIdentifier . Only developer-authenticated users can be merged. If the users to be merged are associated with the same public provider, but as two different users, an exception will be thrown.

You must use AWS Developer credentials to call this API.
