Amazon Cognito now supports provisioned capacity for customers who need higher request limits for APIs used for authentication, user management, and other operations. Customers can request limits higher than the defaults provided by Cognito in any of nine API categories, including User Authentication, User Creation, User Federation, User Read, and User Token. For a complete list of API categories, and the API operations in them, refer to the documentation. Provisioned capacity will be charged based on the desired request-per-second (RPS) increment and the duration (expressed as a portion of a month).

The following example pricing is for US East (N. Virginia):

$20 per RPS-Month for incremental limits for a full month
$45 per RPS-Month for incremental limits for less than a full month

See Amazon Cognito’s Pricing Page for details per API Category and Region. Requests to increase quota in these categories have no minimum monthly active user requirement.

Amazon Cognito’s higher API limits help customers scale their applications as their needs require. This new feature is available in all AWS Regions, except the AWS GovCloud (US-West) Region. To request higher limits, please refer to Requesting a Quota Increase.
