Description

Creates the user pool client. When you create a new user pool client, token revocation is automatically activated. For more information about revoking tokens, see RevokeToken. If you don't provide a value for an attribute, Amazon Cognito sets it to its default value. Amazon Cognito evaluates Identity and Access Management (IAM) policies in requests for this API operation. For this operation, you must use IAM credentials to authorize requests, and you must grant yourself the corresponding IAM permission in a policy. Learn more

Parameters

-AccessTokenValidity <Int32>
The access token time limit. After this limit expires, your user can't use their access token. To specify the time unit for AccessTokenValidity as seconds, minutes, hours, or days, set a TokenValidityUnits value in your API request.For example, when you set AccessTokenValidity to 10 and TokenValidityUnits to hours, your user can authorize access with their access token for 10 hours.The default time unit for AccessTokenValidity in an API request is hours. Valid range is displayed below in seconds.If you don't specify otherwise in the configuration of your app client, your access tokens are valid for one hour.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?True (ByPropertyName)
-AllowedOAuthFlow <String[]>
The allowed OAuth flows.
code
Use a code grant flow, which provides an authorization code as the response. This code can be exchanged for access tokens with the /oauth2/token endpoint.
implicit
Issue the access token (and, optionally, ID token, based on scopes) directly to your user.
client_credentials
Issue the access token from the /oauth2/token endpoint directly to a non-person user using a combination of the client ID and client secret.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?True (ByPropertyName)
AliasesAllowedOAuthFlows
-AllowedOAuthFlowsUserPoolClient <Boolean>
Set to true to use OAuth 2.0 features in your user pool app client.AllowedOAuthFlowsUserPoolClient must be true before you can configure the following features in your app client.
  • CallBackURLs: Callback URLs.
  • LogoutURLs: Sign-out redirect URLs.
  • AllowedOAuthScopes: OAuth 2.0 scopes.
  • AllowedOAuthFlows: Support for authorization code, implicit, and client credentials OAuth 2.0 grants.
To use OAuth 2.0 features, configure one of these features in the Amazon Cognito console or set AllowedOAuthFlowsUserPoolClient to true in a CreateUserPoolClient or UpdateUserPoolClient API request. If you don't set a value for AllowedOAuthFlowsUserPoolClient in a request with the CLI or SDKs, it defaults to false.

-EnablePropagateAdditionalUserContextData <Boolean>
Activates the propagation of additional user context data. For more information about propagation of user context data, see Adding advanced security to a user pool.

You can only activate EnablePropagateAdditionalUserContextData in an app client that has a client secret.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?True (ByPropertyName)
-EnableTokenRevocation <Boolean>

Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?True (ByPropertyName)
-ExplicitAuthFlow <String[]>
The authentication flows that you want your user pool client to support. For each app client in your user pool, you can sign in your users with any combination of one or more flows, including with a user name and Secure Remote Password (SRP), a user name and password, or a custom authentication process that you define with Lambda functions.If you don't specify a value for ExplicitAuthFlows, your user client supports ALLOW_REFRESH_TOKEN_AUTH, ALLOW_USER_SRP_AUTH, and ALLOW_CUSTOM_AUTH.Valid values include:
  • ALLOW_ADMIN_USER_PASSWORD_AUTH: Enable admin based user password authentication flow ADMIN_USER_PASSWORD_AUTH. This setting replaces the ADMIN_NO_SRP_AUTH setting. With this authentication flow, your app passes a user name and password to Amazon Cognito in the request, instead of using the Secure Remote Password (SRP) protocol to securely transmit the password.
  • ALLOW_CUSTOM_AUTH: Enable Lambda trigger based authentication.
  • ALLOW_USER_PASSWORD_AUTH: Enable user password-based authentication. In this flow, Amazon Cognito receives the password in the request instead of using the SRP protocol to verify passwords.
  • ALLOW_USER_SRP_AUTH: Enable SRP-based authentication.
  • ALLOW_REFRESH_TOKEN_AUTH: Enable authflow to refresh tokens.
In some environments, you will see the values ADMIN_NO_SRP_AUTH, CUSTOM_AUTH_FLOW_ONLY, or USER_PASSWORD_AUTH. You can't assign these legacy ExplicitAuthFlows values to user pool clients at the same time as values that begin with ALLOW_, like ALLOW_USER_SRP_AUTH.

-IdTokenValidity <Int32>
The ID token time limit. After this limit expires, your user can't use their ID token. To specify the time unit for IdTokenValidity as seconds, minutes, hours, or days, set a TokenValidityUnits value in your API request.For example, when you set IdTokenValidity as 10 and TokenValidityUnits as hours, your user can authenticate their session with their ID token for 10 hours.The default time unit for IdTokenValidity in an API request is hours. Valid range is displayed below in seconds.If you don't specify otherwise in the configuration of your app client, your ID tokens are valid for one hour.

Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?True (ByPropertyName)
-PreventUserExistenceError <PreventUserExistenceErrorTypes>
Errors and responses that you want Amazon Cognito APIs to return during authentication, account confirmation, and password recovery when the user doesn't exist in the user pool. When set to ENABLED and the user doesn't exist, authentication returns an error indicating either the username or password was incorrect. Account confirmation and password recovery return a response indicating a code was sent to a simulated destination. When set to LEGACY, those APIs return a UserNotFoundException exception if the user doesn't exist in the user pool.Valid values include:
  • ENABLED - This prevents user existence-related errors.
  • LEGACY - This represents the early behavior of Amazon Cognito where user existence related errors aren't prevented.

-RefreshTokenValidity <Int32>
The refresh token time limit. After this limit expires, your user can't use their refresh token. To specify the time unit for RefreshTokenValidity as seconds, minutes, hours, or days, set a TokenValidityUnits value in your API request.For example, when you set RefreshTokenValidity as 10 and TokenValidityUnits as days, your user can refresh their session and retrieve new access and ID tokens for 10 days.The default time unit for RefreshTokenValidity in an API request is days. You can't set RefreshTokenValidity to 0. If you do, Amazon Cognito overrides the value with the default value of 30 days. Valid range is displayed below in seconds.If you don't specify otherwise in the configuration of your app client, your refresh tokens are valid for 30 days.
