cognitoidentityprovider_initiate_auth(AuthFlow, AuthParameters,
  ClientMetadata, ClientId, AnalyticsMetadata, UserContextData)

Arguments

AuthFlow

[required] The authentication flow for this call to execute. The API action will depend on this value. For example:

  • REFRESH_TOKEN_AUTH will take in a valid refresh token and return new tokens.

  • USER_SRP_AUTH will take in USERNAME and SRP_A and return the SRP variables to be used for next challenge execution.

  • USER_PASSWORD_AUTH will take in USERNAME and PASSWORD and return the next challenge or tokens.

Valid values include:

  • USER_SRP_AUTH: Authentication flow for the Secure Remote Password (SRP) protocol.

  • REFRESH_TOKEN_AUTH/REFRESH_TOKEN: Authentication flow for refreshing the access token and ID token by supplying a valid refresh token.

  • CUSTOM_AUTH: Custom authentication flow.

  • USER_PASSWORD_AUTH: Non-SRP authentication flow; USERNAME and PASSWORD are passed directly. If a user migration Lambda trigger is set, this flow will invoke the user migration Lambda if the USERNAME is not found in the user pool.

ADMIN_NO_SRP_AUTH is not a valid value.

AuthParameters

The authentication parameters. These are inputs corresponding to the AuthFlow that you are invoking. The required values depend on the value of AuthFlow:

  • For USER_SRP_AUTH: USERNAME (required), SRP_A (required), SECRET_HASH (required if the app client is configured with a client secret), DEVICE_KEY

  • For REFRESH_TOKEN_AUTH/REFRESH_TOKEN: REFRESH_TOKEN (required), SECRET_HASH (required if the app client is configured with a client secret), DEVICE_KEY

  • For CUSTOM_AUTH: USERNAME (required), SECRET_HASH (if app client is configured with client secret), DEVICE_KEY

ClientMetadata

This is a random key-value pair map which can contain any key and will be passed to your PreAuthentication Lambda trigger as-is. It can be used to implement additional validations around authentication.

ClientId

[required] The app client ID.

AnalyticsMetadata

The Amazon Pinpoint analytics metadata for collecting metrics for InitiateAuth calls.

UserContextData

Contextual data such as the user's device fingerprint, IP address, or location used for evaluating the risk of an unexpected event by Amazon Cognito advanced security.
