Step 1. Create a User Pool - Amazon Cognito

Step 1. Create a User Pool

By using an Amazon Cognito user pool, you can create and maintain a user directory, and add sign-up and sign-in to your mobile app or web application.

To create a user pool

  1. Go to the Amazon Cognito console. You might be prompted for your AWS credentials.

  2. Choose Manage User Pools.

  3. In the top-right corner of the page, choose Create a user pool.

  4. Provide a name for your user pool, and choose Review defaults to save the name.

  5. In the top-left corner of the page, choose Attributes, choose Email address or phone number and Allow email addresses, and then choose Next step to save.


    We recommend that you enable case insensitivity on the username attribute before you create your user pool. For example, when this option is selected, users will be able to sign in using either "username" or "Username". Enabling this option also enables both preferred_username and email alias to be case insensitive, in addition to the username attribute. For more information, see CreateUserPool in the Amazon Cognito user pools API Reference.

  6. In the left navigation menu, choose Review.

  7. Review the user pool information and make any necessary changes. When the information is correct, choose Create pool.
