Amazon Cognito now enables you to use Amazon Simple Email Service (Amazon SES) and Amazon Simple Notification Service (Amazon SNS) in the same region where your Amazon Cognito user pools are configured. By integrating these services in the same region, you can more easily achieve lower latency and remove cross-region dependencies in your architecture.

If your Amazon Cognito user pool is currently configured to make cross-region calls to Amazon SES or Amazon SNS, you can update your configuration through the console, API, or CLI. New Amazon Cognito user pools on new accounts, including instances where account creation is automated, will make in-region calls to Amazon SES and Amazon SNS by default. Existing accounts will continue to make cross-region calls by default.

In-region integration with Amazon SES and Amazon SNS is currently available in all regions where Amazon Cognito is available. To learn more about Amazon Cognito, visit our documentation.
