AWSCognitoCredentialsProvider

Objective-C

@interface AWSCognitoCredentialsProvider : NSObject <AWSCredentialsProvider>

Swift

class AWSCognitoCredentialsProvider : NSObject, AWSCredentialsProvider

An AWSCredentialsProvider that uses Amazon Cognito to fetch temporary credentials tied to an identity.

To learn more about Amazon Cognito, please visit https://aws.amazon.com/cognito.

There are 3 different flows supported by this credentials provider, see factory and init methods for choosing the right one for your use case:

  1. Enhanced flow: Uses Cognito for all operations and only requires an identity pool id to initialize.
  2. Basic flow: Uses Cognito + STS and requires identity pool plus IAM roles
  3. Developer authenticated identities: Uses your own AWSCognitoCredentialsProviderHelper to establish identity + Cognito (and optionally STS) to establish credentials.
  • The identityProvider which is responsible for establishing the identity id and (optionally) the open id token for use in the Amazon Cognito authflow.

    Declaration

    Objective-C

    @property (nonatomic, strong, readonly) id<AWSCognitoCredentialsProviderHelper> _Nonnull identityProvider;

    Swift

    var identityProvider: AWSCognitoCredentialsProviderHelperProtocol { get }
  • The identity id associated with this provider. This value will be fetched from the keychain at startup. If you do not want to reuse the existing identity id, you must call the clearKeychain method.

    Declaration

    Objective-C

    @property (nonatomic, strong, readonly, nullable) NSString *identityId;

    Swift

    var identityId: String? { get }
  • The identity pool id associated with this provider. Also used to create a namedspaced keychain area to store identity id and credentials.

    Declaration

    Objective-C

    @property (nonatomic, strong, readonly) NSString *_Nonnull identityPoolId;

    Swift

    var identityPoolId: String { get }
