The AdminRespondToAuthChallengeRequest type exposes the following members



Public Property AnalyticsMetadata Amazon.CognitoIdentityProvider.Model.AnalyticsMetadataType

Public Property ChallengeName Amazon.CognitoIdentityProvider.ChallengeNameType

Public Property ChallengeResponses System.Collections.Generic.Dictionary<System.String, System.String>

Gets and sets the property ChallengeResponses.

The challenge responses. These are inputs corresponding to the value of ChallengeName, for example:

  • SMS_MFA: SMS_MFA_CODE, USERNAME, SECRET_HASH (if app client is configured with client secret).


  • ADMIN_NO_SRP_AUTH: PASSWORD, USERNAME, SECRET_HASH (if app client is configured with client secret).

  • NEW_PASSWORD_REQUIRED: NEW_PASSWORD, any other required attributes, USERNAME, SECRET_HASH (if app client is configured with client secret).

The value of the USERNAME attribute must be the user's actual username, not an alias (such as email address or phone number). To make this easier, the AdminInitiateAuth response includes the actual username value in the USERNAMEUSER_ID_FOR_SRP attribute, even if you specified an alias in your call to AdminInitiateAuth.

The session which should be passed both ways in challenge-response calls to the service. If InitiateAuth or RespondToAuthChallenge API call determines that the caller needs to go through another challenge, they return a session with other challenge parameters. This session should be passed as it is to the next RespondToAuthChallenge API call.

Public Property UserPoolId System.String

Gets and sets the property UserPoolId.
