create-user-pool

Description

Creates a new Amazon Cognito user pool and sets the password policy for the pool.

Note

This action might generate an SMS text message. Starting June 1, 2021, US telecom carriers require you to register an origination phone number before you can send SMS messages to US phone numbers. If you use SMS text messages in Amazon Cognito, you must register a phone number with Amazon Pinpoint . Amazon Cognito uses the registered number automatically. Otherwise, Amazon Cognito users who must receive SMS messages might not be able to sign up, activate their accounts, or sign in.

If you have never used SMS text messages with Amazon Cognito or any other Amazon Web Service, Amazon Simple Notification Service might place your account in the SMS sandbox. In * sandbox mode * , you can send messages only to verified phone numbers. After you test your app while in the sandbox environment, you can move out of the sandbox and into production. For more information, see SMS message settings for Amazon Cognito user pools in the Amazon Cognito Developer Guide .

--user-attribute-update-settings (structure)

The settings for updates to user attributes. These settings include the property AttributesRequireVerificationBeforeUpdate , a user-pool setting that tells Amazon Cognito how to handle changes to the value of your users' email address and phone number attributes. For more information, see Verifying updates to email addresses and phone numbers .

AttributesRequireVerificationBeforeUpdate -> (list)

Requires that your user verifies their email address, phone number, or both before Amazon Cognito updates the value of that attribute. When you update a user attribute that has this option activated, Amazon Cognito sends a verification message to the new phone number or email address. Amazon Cognito doesn’t change the value of the attribute until your user responds to the verification message and confirms the new value.

You can verify an updated email address or phone number with a VerifyUserAttribute API request. You can also call the UpdateUserAttributes or AdminUpdateUserAttributes API and set email_verified or phone_number_verified to true.

When AttributesRequireVerificationBeforeUpdate is false, your user pool doesn't require that your users verify attribute changes before Amazon Cognito updates them. In a user pool where AttributesRequireVerificationBeforeUpdate is false, API operations that change attribute values can immediately update a user’s email or phone_number attribute.

(string)

Shorthand Syntax:

AttributesRequireVerificationBeforeUpdate=string,string

JSON Syntax:

{
  "AttributesRequireVerificationBeforeUpdate": ["phone_number"|"email", ...]
}

--device-configuration (structure)

The device-remembering configuration for a user pool. A null value indicates that you have deactivated device remembering in your user pool.

Note

When you provide a value for any DeviceConfiguration field, you activate the Amazon Cognito device-remembering feature.

ChallengeRequiredOnNewDevice -> (boolean)

When true, device authentication can replace SMS and time-based one-time password (TOTP) factors for multi-factor authentication (MFA).

Note

Regardless of the value of this field, users that sign in with new devices that have not been confirmed or remembered must provide a second factor if your user pool requires MFA.

DeviceOnlyRememberedOnUserPrompt -> (boolean)

When true, Amazon Cognito doesn't remember newly-confirmed devices. Users who want to authenticate with their device can instead opt in to remembering their device. To collect a choice from your user, create an input prompt in your app and return the value that the user chooses in an UpdateDeviceStatus API request.

Shorthand Syntax:

ChallengeRequiredOnNewDevice=boolean,DeviceOnlyRememberedOnUserPrompt=boolean

JSON Syntax:

{
  "ChallengeRequiredOnNewDevice": true|false,
  "DeviceOnlyRememberedOnUserPrompt": true|false
}

--email-configuration (structure)

The email configuration of your user pool. The email configuration type sets your preferred sending method, Amazon Web Services Region, and sender for messages from your user pool.

SourceArn -> (string)

The ARN of a verified email address in Amazon SES. Amazon Cognito uses this email address in one of the following ways, depending on the value that you specify for the EmailSendingAccount parameter:

  • If you specify COGNITO_DEFAULT , Amazon Cognito uses this address as the custom FROM address when it emails your users using its built-in email account.
  • If you specify DEVELOPER , Amazon Cognito emails your users with this address by calling Amazon SES on your behalf.

The Region value of the SourceArn parameter must indicate a supported Amazon Web Services Region of your user pool. Typically, the Region in the SourceArn and the user pool Region are the same. For more information, see Amazon SES email configuration regions in the Amazon Cognito Developer Guide .

ReplyToEmailAddress -> (string)

The destination to which the receiver of the email should reply.

EmailSendingAccount -> (string)

Specifies whether Amazon Cognito uses its built-in functionality to send your users email messages, or uses your Amazon Simple Email Service email configuration. Specify one of the following values:

COGNITO_DEFAULT

When Amazon Cognito emails your users, it uses its built-in email functionality. When you use the default option, Amazon Cognito allows only a limited number of emails each day for your user pool. For typical production environments, the default email limit is less than the required delivery volume. To achieve a higher delivery volume, specify DEVELOPER to use your Amazon SES email configuration.

To look up the email delivery limit for the default option, see Limits in in the Developer Guide .

The default FROM address is no-reply@verificationemail.com . To customize the FROM address, provide the Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of an Amazon SES verified email address for the SourceArn parameter.

DEVELOPER

When Amazon Cognito emails your users, it uses your Amazon SES configuration. Amazon Cognito calls Amazon SES on your behalf to send email from your verified email address. When you use this option, the email delivery limits are the same limits that apply to your Amazon SES verified email address in your Amazon Web Services account.

If you use this option, provide the ARN of an Amazon SES verified email address for the SourceArn parameter.

Before Amazon Cognito can email your users, it requires additional permissions to call Amazon SES on your behalf. When you update your user pool with this option, Amazon Cognito creates a service-linked role , which is a type of role, in your Amazon Web Services account. This role contains the permissions that allow to access Amazon SES and send email messages with your address. For more information about the service-linked role that Amazon Cognito creates, see Using Service-Linked Roles for Amazon Cognito in the Amazon Cognito Developer Guide .

From -> (string)

Either the sender’s email address or the sender’s name with their email address. For example, testuser@example.com or Test User <testuser@example.com> . This address appears before the body of the email.

ConfigurationSet -> (string)

The set of configuration rules that can be applied to emails sent using Amazon Simple Email Service. A configuration set is applied to an email by including a reference to the configuration set in the headers of the email. Once applied, all of the rules in that configuration set are applied to the email. Configuration sets can be used to apply the following types of rules to emails:

Event publishing

Amazon Simple Email Service can track the number of send, delivery, open, click, bounce, and complaint events for each email sent. Use event publishing to send information about these events to other Amazon Web Services services such as and Amazon CloudWatch

IP pool management

When leasing dedicated IP addresses with Amazon Simple Email Service, you can create groups of IP addresses, called dedicated IP pools. You can then associate the dedicated IP pools with configuration sets.

Shorthand Syntax:

SourceArn=string,ReplyToEmailAddress=string,EmailSendingAccount=string,From=string,ConfigurationSet=string

JSON Syntax:

{
  "SourceArn": "string",
  "ReplyToEmailAddress": "string",
  "EmailSendingAccount": "COGNITO_DEFAULT"|"DEVELOPER",
  "From": "string",
  "ConfigurationSet": "string"
}

--sms-configuration (structure)

The SMS configuration with the settings that your Amazon Cognito user pool must use to send an SMS message from your Amazon Web Services account through Amazon Simple Notification Service. To send SMS messages with Amazon SNS in the Amazon Web Services Region that you want, the Amazon Cognito user pool uses an Identity and Access Management (IAM) role in your Amazon Web Services account.

SnsCallerArn -> (string)

The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the Amazon SNS caller. This is the ARN of the IAM role in your Amazon Web Services account that Amazon Cognito will use to send SMS messages. SMS messages are subject to a spending limit .

ExternalId -> (string)

The external ID provides additional security for your IAM role. You can use an ExternalId with the IAM role that you use with Amazon SNS to send SMS messages for your user pool. If you provide an ExternalId , your Amazon Cognito user pool includes it in the request to assume your IAM role. You can configure the role trust policy to require that Amazon Cognito, and any principal, provide the ExternalID . If you use the Amazon Cognito Management Console to create a role for SMS multi-factor authentication (MFA), Amazon Cognito creates a role with the required permissions and a trust policy that demonstrates use of the ExternalId .

For more information about the ExternalId of a role, see How to use an external ID when granting access to your Amazon Web Services resources to a third party

SnsRegion -> (string)

The Amazon Web Services Region to use with Amazon SNS integration. You can choose the same Region as your user pool, or a supported Legacy Amazon SNS alternate Region .

Amazon Cognito resources in the Asia Pacific (Seoul) Amazon Web Services Region must use your Amazon SNS configuration in the Asia Pacific (Tokyo) Region. For more information, see SMS message settings for Amazon Cognito user pools .

Shorthand Syntax:

SnsCallerArn=string,ExternalId=string,SnsRegion=string

JSON Syntax:

{
  "SnsCallerArn": "string",
  "ExternalId": "string",
  "SnsRegion": "string"
}

--user-pool-tags (map)

key -> (string)

value -> (string)

Shorthand Syntax:

KeyName1=string,KeyName2=string

JSON Syntax:

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

--admin-create-user-config (structure)

The configuration for AdminCreateUser requests.

AllowAdminCreateUserOnly -> (boolean)

Set to True if only the administrator is allowed to create user profiles. Set to False if users can sign themselves up via an app.

UnusedAccountValidityDays -> (integer)

The user account expiration limit, in days, after which a new account that hasn't signed in is no longer usable. To reset the account after that time limit, you must call AdminCreateUser again, specifying "RESEND" for the MessageAction parameter. The default value for this parameter is 7.

Note

If you set a value for TemporaryPasswordValidityDays in PasswordPolicy , that value will be used, and UnusedAccountValidityDays will be no longer be an available parameter for that user pool.

InviteMessageTemplate -> (structure)

The message template to be used for the welcome message to new users.

See also Customizing User Invitation Messages .

SMSMessage -> (string)

The message template for SMS messages.

EmailMessage -> (string)

--schema (list)

An array of schema attributes for the new user pool. These attributes can be standard or custom attributes.

(structure)

Contains information about the schema attribute.

Name -> (string)

A schema attribute of the name type.

AttributeDataType -> (string)

The attribute data type.

DeveloperOnlyAttribute -> (boolean)

Note

You should use WriteAttributes in the user pool client to control how attributes can be mutated for new use cases instead of using DeveloperOnlyAttribute .

Specifies whether the attribute type is developer only. This attribute can only be modified by an administrator. Users won't be able to modify this attribute using their access token. For example, DeveloperOnlyAttribute can be modified using AdminUpdateUserAttributes but can't be updated using UpdateUserAttributes.

Mutable -> (boolean)

Specifies whether the value of the attribute can be changed.

For any user pool attribute that is mapped to an IdP attribute, you must set this parameter to true . Amazon Cognito updates mapped attributes when users sign in to your application through an IdP. If an attribute is immutable, Amazon Cognito throws an error when it attempts to update the attribute. For more information, see Specifying Identity Provider Attribute Mappings for Your User Pool .

Required -> (boolean)

Specifies whether a user pool attribute is required. If the attribute is required and the user doesn't provide a value, registration or sign-in will fail.

False

Enables case insensitivity for all username input. For example, when this option is set to False , users can sign in using either "username" or "Username". This option also enables both preferred_username and email alias to be case insensitive, in addition to the username attribute.

Shorthand Syntax:

CaseSensitive=boolean

JSON Syntax:

{
  "CaseSensitive": true|false
}

--account-recovery-setting (structure)

The available verified method a user can use to recover their password when they call ForgotPassword . You can use this setting to define a preferred method when a user has more than one method available. With this setting, SMS doesn't qualify for a valid password recovery mechanism if the user also has SMS multi-factor authentication (MFA) activated. In the absence of this setting, Amazon Cognito uses the legacy behavior to determine the recovery method where SMS is preferred through email.

RecoveryMechanisms -> (list)

The list of RecoveryOptionTypes .

(structure)

A map containing a priority as a key, and recovery method name as a value.

Priority -> (integer)

A positive integer specifying priority of a method with 1 being the highest priority.

      "Name": "verified_email"|"verified_phone_number"|"admin_only"
    }
    ...
  ]
}

--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 .

To create a minimally configured user pool

This example creates a user pool named MyUserPool using default values. There are no required attributes and no application clients. MFA and advanced security is disabled.

To create a user pool with two required attributes

This example creates a user pool MyUserPool. The pool is configured to accept email as a username attribute. It also sets the email source address to a validated address using Amazon Simple Email Service.

Command:

aws cognito-idp create-user-pool --pool-name MyUserPool --username-attributes "email" --email-configuration=SourceArn="arn:aws:ses:us-east-1:111111111111:identity/jane@example.com",ReplyToEmailAddress="jane@example.com"

Output:

UserAttributeUpdateSettings -> (structure)

The settings for updates to user attributes. These settings include the property AttributesRequireVerificationBeforeUpdate , a user-pool setting that tells Amazon Cognito how to handle changes to the value of your users' email address and phone number attributes. For more information, see Verifying updates to email addresses and phone numbers .

AttributesRequireVerificationBeforeUpdate -> (list)

Requires that your user verifies their email address, phone number, or both before Amazon Cognito updates the value of that attribute. When you update a user attribute that has this option activated, Amazon Cognito sends a verification message to the new phone number or email address. Amazon Cognito doesn’t change the value of the attribute until your user responds to the verification message and confirms the new value.

You can verify an updated email address or phone number with a VerifyUserAttribute API request. You can also call the UpdateUserAttributes or AdminUpdateUserAttributes API and set email_verified or phone_number_verified to true.

When AttributesRequireVerificationBeforeUpdate is false, your user pool doesn't require that your users verify attribute changes before Amazon Cognito updates them. In a user pool where AttributesRequireVerificationBeforeUpdate is false, API operations that change attribute values can immediately update a user’s email or phone_number attribute.

(string)

MfaConfiguration -> (string)

Can be one of the following values:

  • OFF - MFA tokens aren't required and can't be specified during user registration.
  • ON - MFA tokens are required for all user registrations. You can only specify required when you're initially creating a user pool.
  • OPTIONAL - Users have the option when registering to create an MFA token.

DeviceConfiguration -> (structure)

The device-remembering configuration for a user pool. A null value indicates that you have deactivated device remembering in your user pool.

Note

When you provide a value for any DeviceConfiguration field, you activate the Amazon Cognito device-remembering feature.

ChallengeRequiredOnNewDevice -> (boolean)

When true, device authentication can replace SMS and time-based one-time password (TOTP) factors for multi-factor authentication (MFA).

Note

Regardless of the value of this field, users that sign in with new devices that have not been confirmed or remembered must provide a second factor if your user pool requires MFA.

DeviceOnlyRememberedOnUserPrompt -> (boolean)

When true, Amazon Cognito doesn't remember newly-confirmed devices. Users who want to authenticate with their device can instead opt in to remembering their device. To collect a choice from your user, create an input prompt in your app and return the value that the user chooses in an UpdateDeviceStatus API request.

EstimatedNumberOfUsers -> (integer)

A number estimating the size of the user pool.

EmailConfiguration -> (structure)

The email configuration of your user pool. The email configuration type sets your preferred sending method, Amazon Web Services Region, and sender for messages tfrom your user pool.

SourceArn -> (string)

The ARN of a verified email address in Amazon SES. Amazon Cognito uses this email address in one of the following ways, depending on the value that you specify for the EmailSendingAccount parameter:

  • If you specify COGNITO_DEFAULT , Amazon Cognito uses this address as the custom FROM address when it emails your users using its built-in email account.
  • If you specify DEVELOPER , Amazon Cognito emails your users with this address by calling Amazon SES on your behalf.

The Region value of the SourceArn parameter must indicate a supported Amazon Web Services Region of your user pool. Typically, the Region in the SourceArn and the user pool Region are the same. For more information, see Amazon SES email configuration regions in the Amazon Cognito Developer Guide .

ReplyToEmailAddress -> (string)

The destination to which the receiver of the email should reply.

EmailSendingAccount -> (string)

Specifies whether Amazon Cognito uses its built-in functionality to send your users email messages, or uses your Amazon Simple Email Service email configuration. Specify one of the following values:

COGNITO_DEFAULT

When Amazon Cognito emails your users, it uses its built-in email functionality. When you use the default option, Amazon Cognito allows only a limited number of emails each day for your user pool. For typical production environments, the default email limit is less than the required delivery volume. To achieve a higher delivery volume, specify DEVELOPER to use your Amazon SES email configuration.

To look up the email delivery limit for the default option, see Limits in in the Developer Guide .

The default FROM address is no-reply@verificationemail.com . To customize the FROM address, provide the Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of an Amazon SES verified email address for the SourceArn parameter.

DEVELOPER

When Amazon Cognito emails your users, it uses your Amazon SES configuration. Amazon Cognito calls Amazon SES on your behalf to send email from your verified email address. When you use this option, the email delivery limits are the same limits that apply to your Amazon SES verified email address in your Amazon Web Services account.

If you use this option, provide the ARN of an Amazon SES verified email address for the SourceArn parameter.

Before Amazon Cognito can email your users, it requires additional permissions to call Amazon SES on your behalf. When you update your user pool with this option, Amazon Cognito creates a service-linked role , which is a type of role, in your Amazon Web Services account. This role contains the permissions that allow to access Amazon SES and send email messages with your address. For more information about the service-linked role that Amazon Cognito creates, see Using Service-Linked Roles for Amazon Cognito in the Amazon Cognito Developer Guide .

From -> (string)

Either the sender’s email address or the sender’s name with their email address. For example, testuser@example.com or Test User <testuser@example.com> . This address appears before the body of the email.

ConfigurationSet -> (string)

The set of configuration rules that can be applied to emails sent using Amazon Simple Email Service. A configuration set is applied to an email by including a reference to the configuration set in the headers of the email. Once applied, all of the rules in that configuration set are applied to the email. Configuration sets can be used to apply the following types of rules to emails:

Event publishing

Amazon Simple Email Service can track the number of send, delivery, open, click, bounce, and complaint events for each email sent. Use event publishing to send information about these events to other Amazon Web Services services such as and Amazon CloudWatch

IP pool management

When leasing dedicated IP addresses with Amazon Simple Email Service, you can create groups of IP addresses, called dedicated IP pools. You can then associate the dedicated IP pools with configuration sets.

SmsConfiguration -> (structure)

The SMS configuration with the settings that your Amazon Cognito user pool must use to send an SMS message from your Amazon Web Services account through Amazon Simple Notification Service. To send SMS messages with Amazon SNS in the Amazon Web Services Region that you want, the Amazon Cognito user pool uses an Identity and Access Management (IAM) role in your Amazon Web Services account.

SnsCallerArn -> (string)

The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the Amazon SNS caller. This is the ARN of the IAM role in your Amazon Web Services account that Amazon Cognito will use to send SMS messages. SMS messages are subject to a spending limit .

ExternalId -> (string)

The external ID provides additional security for your IAM role. You can use an ExternalId with the IAM role that you use with Amazon SNS to send SMS messages for your user pool. If you provide an ExternalId , your Amazon Cognito user pool includes it in the request to assume your IAM role. You can configure the role trust policy to require that Amazon Cognito, and any principal, provide the ExternalID . If you use the Amazon Cognito Management Console to create a role for SMS multi-factor authentication (MFA), Amazon Cognito creates a role with the required permissions and a trust policy that demonstrates use of the ExternalId .

For more information about the ExternalId of a role, see How to use an external ID when granting access to your Amazon Web Services resources to a third party

SnsRegion -> (string)

The Amazon Web Services Region to use with Amazon SNS integration. You can choose the same Region as your user pool, or a supported Legacy Amazon SNS alternate Region .

Amazon Cognito resources in the Asia Pacific (Seoul) Amazon Web Services Region must use your Amazon SNS configuration in the Asia Pacific (Tokyo) Region. For more information, see SMS message settings for Amazon Cognito user pools .

UserPoolTags -> (map)

The tags that are assigned to the user pool. A tag is a label that you can apply to user pools to categorize and manage them in different ways, such as by purpose, owner, environment, or other criteria.

key -> (string)

value -> (string)

SmsConfigurationFailure -> (string)

The reason why the SMS configuration can't send the messages to your users.

This message might include comma-separated values to describe why your SMS configuration can't send messages to user pool end users.

InvalidSmsRoleAccessPolicyException

The Identity and Access Management role that Amazon Cognito uses to send SMS messages isn't properly configured. For more information, see SmsConfigurationType .

SNSSandbox

The Amazon Web Services account is in the SNS SMS Sandbox and messages will only reach verified end users. This parameter won’t get populated with SNSSandbox if the IAM user creating the user pool doesn’t have SNS permissions. To learn how to move your Amazon Web Services account out of the sandbox, see Moving out of the SMS sandbox .

EmailConfigurationFailure -> (string)

Deprecated. Review error codes from API requests with EventSource:cognito-idp.amazonaws.com in CloudTrail for information about problems with user pool email configuration.

Domain -> (string)

The domain prefix, if the user pool has a domain associated with it.

CustomDomain -> (string)

A custom domain name that you provide to Amazon Cognito. This parameter applies only if you use a custom domain to host the sign-up and sign-in pages for your application. An example of a custom domain name might be auth.example.com .

For more information about adding a custom domain to your user pool, see Using Your Own Domain for the Hosted UI .

AdminCreateUserConfig -> (structure)

The configuration for AdminCreateUser requests.

AllowAdminCreateUserOnly -> (boolean)

Set to True if only the administrator is allowed to create user profiles. Set to False if users can sign themselves up via an app.

UnusedAccountValidityDays -> (integer)

The user account expiration limit, in days, after which a new account that hasn't signed in is no longer usable. To reset the account after that time limit, you must call AdminCreateUser again, specifying "RESEND" for the MessageAction parameter. The default value for this parameter is 7.

Note

If you set a value for TemporaryPasswordValidityDays in PasswordPolicy , that value will be used, and UnusedAccountValidityDays will be no longer be an available parameter for that user pool.

CaseSensitive -> (boolean)

Specifies whether user name case sensitivity will be applied for all users in the user pool through Amazon Cognito APIs.

Valid values include:

True

Enables case sensitivity for all username input. When this option is set to True , users must sign in using the exact capitalization of their given username, such as “UserName”. This is the default value.

False

Enables case insensitivity for all username input. For example, when this option is set to False , users can sign in using either "username" or "Username". This option also enables both preferred_username and email alias to be case insensitive, in addition to the username attribute.

Arn -> (string)

The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) for the user pool.

AccountRecoverySetting -> (structure)

The available verified method a user can use to recover their password when they call ForgotPassword . You can use this setting to define a preferred method when a user has more than one method available. With this setting, SMS doesn't qualify for a valid password recovery mechanism if the user also has SMS multi-factor authentication (MFA) activated. In the absence of this setting, Amazon Cognito uses the legacy behavior to determine the recovery method where SMS is preferred through email.

RecoveryMechanisms -> (list)

The list of RecoveryOptionTypes .
