If you’re building an API that is intended for external clients, it’s essential to have good documentation and authentication mechanisms in place. In this blog, we’ll take a closer look at how we built a Spring Boot API and integrated it with AWS Cognito for authentication.
What is AWS Cognito?
AWS Cognito is a managed service from Amazon that provides authentication, authorization, and user management for web and mobile applications. It allows you to create and maintain a user directory and integrate it with your applications seamlessly. With AWS Cognito, you can handle user sign up, sign-in, and access control in a secure and scalable way.
What is AWS CDK?
AWS Cloud Development Kit (CDK) is an open-source software development framework that allows you to define your cloud infrastructure in code. With AWS CDK, you can define your cloud resources using familiar programming languages like TypeScript, Java, and Python, and then deploy them with ease. AWS CDK makes it easy to automate your infrastructure deployment and ensures that your resources are consistent and repeatable.
We deployed the Cognito stack via CDK. The following infrastructure was written in TypeScript and deployed via CDK: typescript.
