Synopsis

  admin-respond-to-auth-challenge
--user-pool-id <value>
--client-id <value>
--challenge-name <value>
[--challenge-responses <value>]
[--session <value>]
[--analytics-metadata <value>]
[--context-data <value>]
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]

Options

--user-pool-id (string)

The ID of the Amazon Cognito user pool.

--client-id (string)

The app client ID.

--challenge-name (string)

The challenge name. For more information, see .

Possible values:

  • SMS_MFA
  • SOFTWARE_TOKEN_MFA
  • SELECT_MFA_TYPE
  • MFA_SETUP
  • PASSWORD_VERIFIER
  • CUSTOM_CHALLENGE
  • DEVICE_SRP_AUTH
  • DEVICE_PASSWORD_VERIFIER
  • ADMIN_NO_SRP_AUTH
  • NEW_PASSWORD_REQUIRED

--challenge-responses (map)

The challenge responses. These are inputs corresponding to the value of ChallengeName , for example:

  • SMS_MFA : SMS_MFA_CODE , USERNAME , SECRET_HASH (if app client is configured with client secret).
  • PASSWORD_VERIFIER : PASSWORD_CLAIM_SIGNATURE , PASSWORD_CLAIM_SECRET_BLOCK , TIMESTAMP , USERNAME , SECRET_HASH (if app client is configured with client secret).
  • ADMIN_NO_SRP_AUTH : PASSWORD , USERNAME , SECRET_HASH (if app client is configured with client secret).
  • NEW_PASSWORD_REQUIRED : NEW_PASSWORD , any other required attributes, USERNAME , SECRET_HASH (if app client is configured with client secret).

The value of the USERNAME attribute must be the user's actual username, not an alias (such as email address or phone number). To make this easier, the AdminInitiateAuth response includes the actual username value in the USERNAMEUSER_ID_FOR_SRP attribute, even if you specified an alias in your call to AdminInitiateAuth .

Shorthand Syntax:

KeyName1=string,KeyName2=string

JSON Syntax:

{"string": "string"
  ...}

--session (string)

The session which should be passed both ways in challenge-response calls to the service. If InitiateAuth or RespondToAuthChallenge API call determines that the caller needs to go through another challenge, they return a session with other challenge parameters. This session should be passed as it is to the next RespondToAuthChallenge API call.

--analytics-metadata (structure)

The analytics metadata for collecting Amazon Pinpoint metrics for AdminRespondToAuthChallenge calls.

Shorthand Syntax:

AnalyticsEndpointId=string

JSON Syntax:

{
  "AnalyticsEndpointId": "string"
}

--context-data (structure)

Contextual data such as the user's device fingerprint, IP address, or location used for evaluating the risk of an unexpected event by Amazon Cognito advanced security.

Shorthand Syntax:

IpAddress=string,ServerName=string,ServerPath=string,HttpHeaders=[{headerName=string,headerValue=string},{headerName=string,headerValue=string}],EncodedData=string

JSON Syntax:

{
  "IpAddress": "string",
  "ServerName": "string",
  "ServerPath": "string",
  "HttpHeaders": [
    {
      "headerName": "string",
      "headerValue": "string"
    }
    ...
  ],
  "EncodedData": "string"
}

--cli-input-json (string) Performs service operation based on the JSON string provided. The JSON string follows the format provided by --generate-cli-skeleton. If other arguments are provided on the command line, the CLI values will override the JSON-provided values. It is not possible to pass arbitrary binary values using a JSON-provided value as the string will be taken literally.

--generate-cli-skeleton (string) Prints a JSON skeleton to standard output without sending an API request. If provided with no value or the value input, prints a sample input JSON that can be used as an argument for --cli-input-json. If provided with the value output, it validates the command inputs and returns a sample output JSON for that command.

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.
