Amazon Cognito has launched a new API – AdminSetUserPassword – for the Cognito User Pool service that provides a way for administrators to set temporary or permanent passwords for their end users. This functionality is available for end users even when their verified phone or email are unavailable.

Amazon Cognito lets you add user sign-up, sign-in, and access control to your web and mobile apps quickly and easily. Amazon Cognito scales to millions of users and supports sign-in with social identity providers, such as Facebook, Google, and Amazon, and enterprise identity providers via SAML 2.0.

For instructions on how to use the new API, please visit the Amazon Cognito Developer Guide. Please visit our product page to learn more about Amazon Cognito and to see the region availability of Cognito, please see the AWS Region Table.
