confirm-forgot-password

Description

Allows a user to enter a confirmation code to reset a forgotten password.

See also: AWS API Documentation

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.

Synopsis

  confirm-forgot-password
--client-id <value>
[--secret-hash <value>]
--username <value>
--confirmation-code <value>
--password <value>
[--analytics-metadata <value>]
[--user-context-data <value>]
[--client-metadata <value>]
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]

Options

--client-id (string)

The app client ID of the app associated with the user pool.

--secret-hash (string)

A keyed-hash message authentication code (HMAC) calculated using the secret key of a user pool client and username plus the client ID in the message.

--username (string)

The user name of the user for whom you want to enter a code to retrieve a forgotten password.

--confirmation-code (string)

The confirmation code from your user's request to reset their password. For more information, see ForgotPassword .

--password (string)

The new password that your user wants to set.

--analytics-metadata (structure)

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

AnalyticsEndpointId -> (string)

The endpoint ID.

Shorthand Syntax:

AnalyticsEndpointId=string

JSON Syntax:

{
  "AnalyticsEndpointId": "string"
}

--user-context-data (structure)

Contextual data about your user session, such as the device fingerprint, IP address, or location. Amazon Cognito advanced security evaluates the risk of an authentication event based on the context that your app generates and passes to Amazon Cognito when it makes API requests.

IpAddress -> (string)

The source IP address of your user's device.

EncodedData -> (string)

Encoded device-fingerprint details that your app collected with the Amazon Cognito context data collection library. For more information, see Adding user device and session data to API requests .

Shorthand Syntax:

IpAddress=string,EncodedData=string

JSON Syntax:

{
  "IpAddress": "string",
  "EncodedData": "string"
}

--client-metadata (map)

A map of custom key-value pairs that you can provide as input for any custom workflows that this action triggers.

You create custom workflows by assigning Lambda functions to user pool triggers. When you use the ConfirmForgotPassword API action, Amazon Cognito invokes the function that is assigned to the post confirmation trigger. When Amazon Cognito invokes this function, it passes a JSON payload, which the function receives as input. This payload contains a clientMetadata attribute, which provides the data that you assigned to the ClientMetadata parameter in your ConfirmForgotPassword request. In your function code in Lambda, you can process the clientMetadata value to enhance your workflow for your specific needs.

For more information, see Customizing user pool Workflows with Lambda Triggers in the Amazon Cognito Developer Guide .

Note

When you use the ClientMetadata parameter, remember that Amazon Cognito won't do the following:

  • Store the ClientMetadata value. This data is available only to Lambda triggers that are assigned to a user pool to support custom workflows. If your user pool configuration doesn't include triggers, the ClientMetadata parameter serves no purpose.
  • Validate the ClientMetadata value.
  • Encrypt the ClientMetadata value. Don't use Amazon Cognito to provide sensitive information.

key -> (string)

value -> (string)

Shorthand Syntax:

KeyName1=string,KeyName2=string

JSON Syntax:

{"string": "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.

Examples

Note

To use the following examples, you must have the AWS CLI installed and configured. See the Getting started guide in the AWS CLI User Guide for more information.

Unless otherwise stated, all examples have unix-like quotation rules. These examples will need to be adapted to your terminal's quoting rules. See Using quotation marks with strings in the AWS CLI User Guide .
