Description

Creates the user pool client.

Parameters

-AllowedOAuthFlow <String[]>
Set to code to initiate a code grant flow, which provides an authorization code as the response. This code can be exchanged for access tokens with the token endpoint.Set to token to specify that the client should get the access token (and, optionally, ID token, based on scopes) directly.

-ExplicitAuthFlow <String[]>
The authentication flows that are supported by the user pool clients. Flow names without the ALLOW_ prefix are deprecated in favor of new names with the ALLOW_ prefix. Note that values with ALLOW_ prefix cannot be used along with values without ALLOW_ prefix.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, Cognito receives the password in the request instead of using the SRP (Secure Remote Password protocol) protocol to verify passwords.
  • ALLOW_CUSTOM_AUTH: Enable Lambda trigger based authentication.
  • ALLOW_USER_PASSWORD_AUTH: Enable user password-based authentication. In this flow, 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.

Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?True (ByPropertyName)
-PreventUserExistenceError <PreventUserExistenceErrorTypes>
Use this setting to choose which errors and responses are returned by Cognito APIs during authentication, account confirmation, and password recovery when the user does not exist in the user pool. When set to ENABLED and the user does not exist, authentication returns an error indicating either the username or password was incorrect, and account confirmation and password recovery return a response indicating a code was sent to a simulated destination. When set to LEGACY, those APIs will return a UserNotFoundException exception if the user does not exist in the user pool.Valid values include:
  • ENABLED - This prevents user existence-related errors.
  • LEGACY - This represents the old behavior of Cognito where user existence related errors are not prevented.
This setting affects the behavior of following APIs:After January 1st 2020, the value of PreventUserExistenceErrors will default to ENABLED for newly created user pool clients if no value is provided.

-Select <String>
Use the -Select parameter to control the cmdlet output. The default value is 'UserPoolClient'. Specifying -Select '*' will result in the cmdlet returning the whole service response (Amazon.CognitoIdentityProvider.Model.CreateUserPoolClientResponse). Specifying the name of a property of type Amazon.CognitoIdentityProvider.Model.CreateUserPoolClientResponse will result in that property being returned. Specifying -Select '^ParameterName' will result in the cmdlet returning the selected cmdlet parameter value.

Accept pipeline input?True (ByValue, ByPropertyName)
-WriteAttribute <String[]>
The user pool attributes that the app client can write to.If your app client allows users to sign in through an identity provider, this array must include all attributes that are mapped to identity provider attributes. Amazon Cognito updates mapped attributes when users sign in to your application through an identity provider. If your app client lacks write access to a mapped attribute, 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.

Common Credential and Region Parameters

-AccessKey <String>
The AWS access key for the user account. This can be a temporary access key if the corresponding session token is supplied to the -SessionToken parameter.
Required? False
Position? Named
Accept pipeline input? True (ByPropertyName)
Aliases AK
-Credential <AWSCredentials>
An AWSCredentials object instance containing access and secret key information, and optionally a token for session-based credentials.
Required? False
Position? Named
Accept pipeline input? True (ByPropertyName)
-ProfileLocation <String>

Used to specify the name and location of the ini-format credential file (shared with the AWS CLI and other AWS SDKs)

If this optional parameter is omitted this cmdlet will search the encrypted credential file used by the AWS SDK for .NET and AWS Toolkit for Visual Studio first. If the profile is not found then the cmdlet will search in the ini-format credential file at the default location: (user's home directory)\.aws\credentials. Note that the encrypted credential file is not supported on all platforms. It will be skipped when searching for profiles on Windows Nano Server, Mac, and Linux platforms.

If this parameter is specified then this cmdlet will only search the ini-format credential file at the location given.

As the current folder can vary in a shell or during script execution it is advised that you use specify a fully qualified path instead of a relative path.

Required? False
Position? Named
Accept pipeline input? True (ByPropertyName)
Aliases AWSProfilesLocation, ProfilesLocation
-ProfileName <String>
The user-defined name of an AWS credentials or SAML-based role profile containing credential information.

You can also specify the name of a profile stored in the .ini-format credential file used with the AWS CLI and other AWS SDKs.
Required? False
Position? Named
Accept pipeline input? True (ByPropertyName)
Aliases AWSProfileName, StoredCredentials
-NetworkCredential <PSCredential>
Used with SAML-based authentication when ProfileName references a SAML role profile. Contains the network credentials to be supplied during authentication with the configured identity provider's endpoint. This parameter is not required if the user's default network identity can or should be used during authentication.
Required? False
Position? Named
Accept pipeline input? True (ByPropertyName)

-EndpointUrl <String>

The endpoint to make the call against.

Note: This parameter is primarily for internal AWS use and is not required/should not be specified for normal usage.

Only specify this parameter if you must direct the call to a specific custom endpoint.

Inputs

You can pipe a String object to this cmdlet for the UserPoolId parameter.

Outputs

This cmdlet returns an Amazon.CognitoIdentityProvider.Model.UserPoolClientType object. The service call response (type Amazon.CognitoIdentityProvider.Model.CreateUserPoolClientResponse) can also be referenced from properties attached to the cmdlet entry in the $AWSHistory stack.
