Question: Update tutorial to use Serverless to setup Cognito?

Like how it’s done here?

@jonsaw I see what they are doing but I’m not entirely clear on how we should use it in the tutorial. Could you elaborate a bit?

Cognito was moved from Mobile Services to Security.


Quite number of the options in Cognito differ from the book. May be time to update


Thanks for letting us know. Can you point out which screenshot(s) was the issue?


In this chapter we created a Domain Name and I don’t really understand the use of it. Why is his purpose?


Yeah it’s weird but it is a part of configuring Cognito.

We don’t use it in the tutorial but Cognito uses this to have a URL to host their authentication UI. You can opt to have Cognito manage the login forms for you.
