Cognito Review

Pros

User-friendly and is very easy for beginners to navigate through. I like how there's also a lot of options to search for a profile to review their ID and figure out if there's a misalignment that needs to be fixed.

Cons

With how I've been using it for, I can't think of anything else as it's cons aside from not being able to search for users when there is an extra space in front and end of the info you are trying to query.

Great features for the most competitive MAU price

Pros

If you evaluate Cognito against other identity management solutions in the industry for the price point and the features provided, Cognito is a winner for normal run of the mill authentication and authorization needs of you web and mobile apps. It has one of the lowest costs per monthly active users and the feature set is fairly good.

Cons

The features lack when compared to an Okta or similar commercial offerings. This includes non availability of IdP initiated SAML, multi valued attributes, SAML encryption etc. However, this is understandable as the price point is much lower.

Easy solution to setup a complete SSO system

We have to setup a SSO system for our customer. Multiple applications needs to login, PHP applications, mobile and SPA applications.

Pros

AWS Cognito is very quick and easy to set up in a basic configuration, allowing you to have a fast and reliable SSO system. with Hosted Login Page option a lot of features, like reset password, registration and email sending, form checks are fully working with just a few clicks.

Cons

A better error description when something goes wrong during setup. Better documentation with some use cases will be very appreciated.

Un gestionnaire d'identité facile à prendre en main mais peu customisable

Pros

Rapide à intégrer, il s'interface facilement à un Amazon API Gateway. Il offre une gestion des utilisateurs et des accès simples, configurable via Terraform et implémente la plupart des flow d'authentification OAUTH 2 connu.

Cons

Difficilement configurable dans des scénarios plus complexes (silent mode inexistant, invalidation des refresh tokens au moment du rafraîchissement non implémenté...). Relativement cher lorsqu'on veut l'utiliser avec la fédération d'identité.
