Package cognitoidentityprovider provides the client and types for making API requests to Amazon Cognito Identity Provider.
With the Amazon Cognito user pools API, you can configure user pools and authenticate users. To authenticate users from third-party identity providers (IdPs) in this API, you can link IdP users to native user profiles (https://docs.aws.amazon.com/cognito/latest/developerguide/cognito-user-pools-identity-federation-consolidate-users.html). Learn more about the authentication and authorization of federated users at Adding user pool sign-in through a third party (https://docs.aws.amazon.com/cognito/latest/developerguide/cognito-user-pools-identity-federation.html) and in the User pool federation endpoints and hosted UI reference (https://docs.aws.amazon.com/cognito/latest/developerguide/cognito-userpools-server-contract-reference.html).
This API reference provides detailed information about API operations and object types in Amazon Cognito.
Along with resource management operations, the Amazon Cognito user pools API includes classes of operations and authorization models for client-side and server-side authentication of users. You can interact with operations in the Amazon Cognito user pools API as any of the following subjects.
An administrator who wants to configure user pools, app clients, users, groups, or other user pool functions.
A server-side app, like a web application, that wants to use its Amazon Web Services privileges to manage, authenticate, or authorize a user.
A client-side app, like a mobile app, that wants to make unauthenticated requests to manage, authenticate, or authorize a user.
For more information, see Using the Amazon Cognito user pools API and user pool endpoints (https://docs.aws.amazon.com/cognito/latest/developerguide/user-pools-API-operations.html) in the Amazon Cognito Developer Guide.
With your Amazon Web Services SDK, you can build the logic to support operational flows in every use case for this API. You can also make direct REST API requests to Amazon Cognito user pools service endpoints (https://docs.aws.amazon.com/general/latest/gr/cognito_identity.html#cognito_identity_your_user_pools_region).

To get started with an Amazon Web Services SDK, see Tools to Build on Amazon Web Services (http://aws.amazon.com/developer/tools/). For example actions and scenarios, see Code examples for Amazon Cognito Identity Provider using Amazon Web Services SDKs (https://docs.aws.amazon.com/cognito/latest/developerguide/service_code_examples_cognito-identity-provider.html).
See https://docs.aws.amazon.com/goto/WebAPI/cognito-idp-2016-04-18 for more information on this service.
See cognitoidentityprovider package documentation for more information. https://docs.aws.amazon.com/sdk-for-go/api/service/cognitoidentityprovider/
To contact Amazon Cognito Identity Provider with the SDK use the New function to create a new service client. With that client you can make API requests to the service. These clients are safe to use concurrently.
See the SDK's documentation for more information on how to use the SDK. https://docs.aws.amazon.com/sdk-for-go/api/
See aws.Config documentation for more information on configuring SDK clients. https://docs.aws.amazon.com/sdk-for-go/api/aws/#Config
See the Amazon Cognito Identity Provider client CognitoIdentityProvider for more information on creating client for this service. https://docs.aws.amazon.com/sdk-for-go/api/service/cognitoidentityprovider/#New
The stub package, cognitoidentityprovideriface, can be used to provide alternative implementations of service clients, such as mocking the client for testing.
