Synopsis

Calls the Amazon Cognito Identity Provider UpdateUserAttributes API operation. This operation uses anonymous authentication and does not require credential parameters to be supplied.

Syntax

Update-CGIPUserAttribute
-AccessToken <String>
-ClientMetadata <Hashtable>
-UserAttribute <AttributeType[]>
-Select <String>
-PassThru <SwitchParameter>
-Force <SwitchParameter>

Description

Allows a user to update a specific attribute (one at a time).

Parameters

-AccessToken <String>
The access token for the request to update user attributes.
Required?True
Position?1
Accept pipeline input?True (ByValue, ByPropertyName)
-ClientMetadata <Hashtable>
A map of custom key-value pairs that you can provide as input for any custom workflows that this action triggers. You create custom workflows by assigning AWS Lambda functions to user pool triggers. When you use the UpdateUserAttributes API action, Amazon Cognito invokes the function that is assigned to the custom message trigger. When Amazon Cognito invokes this function, it passes a JSON payload, which the function receives as input. This payload contains a clientMetadata attribute, which provides the data that you assigned to the ClientMetadata parameter in your UpdateUserAttributes request. In your function code in AWS Lambda, you can process the clientMetadata value to enhance your workflow for your specific needs.For more information, see Customizing User Pool Workflows with Lambda Triggers in the Amazon Cognito Developer Guide.Take the following limitations into consideration when you use the ClientMetadata parameter:
  • Amazon Cognito does not store the ClientMetadata value. This data is available only to AWS Lambda triggers that are assigned to a user pool to support custom workflows. If your user pool configuration does not include triggers, the ClientMetadata parameter serves no purpose.
  • Amazon Cognito does not validate the ClientMetadata value.
  • Amazon Cognito does not encrypt the the ClientMetadata value, so don't use it to provide sensitive information.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?True (ByPropertyName)
This parameter overrides confirmation prompts to force the cmdlet to continue its operation. This parameter should always be used with caution.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?True (ByPropertyName)
-PassThru <SwitchParameter>
Changes the cmdlet behavior to return the value passed to the AccessToken parameter. The -PassThru parameter is deprecated, use -Select '^AccessToken' instead. This parameter will be removed in a future version.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?True (ByPropertyName)
-Select <String>
Use the -Select parameter to control the cmdlet output. The default value is 'CodeDeliveryDetailsList'. Specifying -Select '*' will result in the cmdlet returning the whole service response (Amazon.CognitoIdentityProvider.Model.UpdateUserAttributesResponse). Specifying the name of a property of type Amazon.CognitoIdentityProvider.Model.UpdateUserAttributesResponse will result in that property being returned. Specifying -Select '^ParameterName' will result in the cmdlet returning the selected cmdlet parameter value.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?True (ByPropertyName)
-UserAttribute <AttributeType[]>
An array of name-value pairs representing user attributes.For custom attributes, you must prepend the custom: prefix to the attribute name.
Required?True
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?True (ByPropertyName)
AliasesUserAttributes

Common Credential and Region Parameters

-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. The cmdlets normally determine which endpoint to call based on the region specified to the -Region parameter or set as default in the shell (via Set-DefaultAWSRegion). Only specify this parameter if you must direct the call to a specific custom endpoint.
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). When supplied the cmdlet will attempt to read the default region to be used from the credential file's default profile.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.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?212
Accept pipeline input?True (ByPropertyName)
AliasesAWSProfilesLocation, ProfilesLocation
-Region <Object>
The system name of an AWS region or an AWSRegion instance. This governs the endpoint that will be used when calling service operations. Note that the AWS resources referenced in a call are usually region-specific.If the Region parameter is supplied the cmdlet ignores the ProfileLocation parameter.
Required?False
Position?211
Accept pipeline input?True (ByValue, ByPropertyName)
AliasesRegionToCall

Outputs

This cmdlet returns a collection of Amazon.CognitoIdentityProvider.Model.CodeDeliveryDetailsType objects. The service call response (type Amazon.CognitoIdentityProvider.Model.UpdateUserAttributesResponse) can also be referenced from properties attached to the cmdlet entry in the $AWSHistory stack.
