Amazon Cognito User Pools now enables you to manage quotas for commonly used operation categories, such as user creation and user authentication, as well as view quotas and usage levels in the AWS Service Quotas dashboard or in CloudWatch metrics. This update makes it simple to view your quota usage of and request rate increases for multiple APIs in the same category. For example, you now can now see the aggregated limit for a single “UserCreation” category, which includes SignUp, AdminCreateUser, ConfirmSignUp, and AdminConfirmSignUp. You can check whether the existing quotas can meet your operations needs in Service Quotas console or CloudWatch metrics. You can refer to this documentation to learn how the API operations are mapped to the new categories.

If you have already received a limit increase for certain operations, your elevated quotas have been carried over to the new quota categories. You can request rate increases with these new categories through AWS Service Quotas or request a rate increase for quotas that are not yet available in Service Quotas via AWS Support.

Amazon Cognito User Pools provides a secure user directory that scales to millions of users. As a fully managed service, User Pools provide an identity and authentication layer to applications.  

The new limit categorization and usage monitoring is available in all regions where Amazon Cognito operates. For a list of regions where Amazon Cognito is available, see the AWS Region table.
