SmsConfigurationType - Amazon Cognito User Pools


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



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

Type: String

Length Constraints: Minimum length of 20. Maximum length of 2048.

Pattern: arn:[\w+=/,.@-]+:[\w+=/,.@-]+:([\w+=/,.@-]*)?:[0-9]+:[\w+=/,.@-]+(:[\w+=/,.@-]+)?(:[\w+=/,.@-]+)?

Required: Yes


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.
