API Reference

AWS services or capabilities described in AWS Documentation may vary by region/location. Click Getting Started with Amazon AWS to see specific differences applicable to the China (Beijing) Region.

Use this operation to create a workforce. This operation will return an error if a workforce already exists in the Amazon Web Services Region that you specify. You can only create one workforce in each Amazon Web Services Region per Amazon Web Services account.

If you want to create a new workforce in an Amazon Web Services Region where a workforce already exists, use the API operation to delete the existing workforce and then use CreateWorkforce to create a new workforce.

To create a private workforce using Amazon Cognito, you must specify a Cognito user pool in CognitoConfig. You can also create an Amazon Cognito workforce using the Amazon SageMaker console. For more information, see Create a Private Workforce (Amazon Cognito).

To create a private workforce using your own OIDC Identity Provider (IdP), specify your IdP configuration in OidcConfig. Your OIDC IdP must support groups because groups are used by Ground Truth and Amazon A2I to create work teams. For more information, see Create a Private Workforce (OIDC IdP).


This is an asynchronous operation using the standard naming convention for .NET 4.5 or higher. For .NET 3.5 the operation is implemented as a pair of methods using the standard naming convention of BeginCreateWorkforce and EndCreateWorkforce.
