Amazon Cognito user pools now support the ability to enrich access tokens with custom attributes in the form of OAuth 2.0 scopes and claims. You can make application-specific advanced authorization decisions using custom attributes in the access token. This feature also allows you to personalize end-user experiences and improve customer engagement. 

Amazon Cognito is a service that makes it simpler to add authentication, authorization, and user management to your web and mobile apps. Amazon Cognito provides authentication for applications with millions of users and supports sign-in with social identity providers such as Apple, Facebook, Google, and Amazon, and enterprise identity providers via standards such as SAML 2.0 and OpenID Connect. 

This new feature is now available as part of Cognito advanced security features in all AWS Regions, except AWS GovCloud (US) Regions.
