AWS Cognito

With this integration you can engage customers with flexible authentication, manage B2B identities, secure machine-to-machine authentication or get role-based access to AWS resources.


Credential configuration

To fill the form params you need the Access key id and the Secret access key of the Programatic access user you want to use. This user needs the permissions to have access to Lambda to work properly. If you need to create the user, you can see how to do it here.

In the extra options field you can pass any of the params you can find here.

Here you have an example of a filled credential configuration form in YepCode:
