Amazon Cognito Service

Amazon Cognito is a customer identity and access management (CIAM) service. Amazon Cognito provides user pool and identity pool to support SSO based access to the Wyn Enterprise application. User pool is a user directory using which users can sign in to the Wyn Enterprise application through Amazon Cognito. Identity pool is used to provide AWS (Amazon Web Services) credentials to the users. To support OAuth authentication, Amazon Cognito provides an OAuth 2 authentication server for token handling and authenticated user management. For more information, see the Using Amazon Cognito hosted UI help article.

Before configuring, ensure the following,

  1. Install the Wyn Enterprise application version 6.0 or above.

  2. Create an application client in the user pool of Amazon Cognito. To create the application client, follow the below instructions,

    i) Create a User Pool - The Required Attributes should contain name and a valid email. For more information, see the Create a User Pool - Amazon Cognito help article.
