Amazon Web Services Single Sign On Portal is a web service that makes it easy for you to assign user access to Amazon Web Services SSO resources such as the AWS access portal. Users can get Amazon Web Services account applications and roles assigned to them and get federated into the application.


Although Amazon Web Services Single Sign-On was renamed, the sso and identitystore API namespaces will continue to retain their original name for backward compatibility purposes. For more information, see Amazon Web Services SSO rename .

This API reference guide describes the Amazon Web Services SSO Portal operations that you can call programatically and includes detailed information on data types and errors.


Amazon Web Services provides SDKs that consist of libraries and sample code for various programming languages and platforms, such as Java, Ruby, .Net, iOS, or Android. The SDKs provide a convenient way to create programmatic access to Amazon Web Services SSO and other Amazon Web Services services. For more information about the Amazon Web Services SDKs, including how to download and install them, see Tools for Amazon Web Services .
