UserContext - Amazon Kendra

UserContext

Provides information about the user context for an Amazon Kendra index.

User context filtering is a kind of personalized search with the benefit of controlling access to documents. For example, not all teams that search the company portal for information should access top-secret company documents, nor are these documents relevant to all users. Only specific users or groups of teams given access to top-secret documents should see these documents in their search results.

You provide one of the following:

  • User token

  • User ID, the groups the user belongs to, and any data sources the groups can access.

If you provide both, an exception is thrown.
