Authentication using the Amazon Cognito to an Angular application

Introduction

In this article, an application will be created using the latest version of Angular with authentication using the Amazon Cognito service which provides a simple and secure integration with support for user signin, signup and control in a WEB or mobile application.

Prerequisites

Before you start, you need to install and configure the tools below to create the Angular application.

  • git: Git is a distributed version control system and it will be used to sync the repository.
  • Node.js and npm: Node.js is a JavaScript code runtime software based on Google's V8 engine. npm is a package manager for Node.js (Node.js Package Manager). They will be used to build and run the Angular application and install the libraries.
  • Angular CLI: Angular CLI is a command line utility tool for Angular and it will be used to create the base structure of the Angular application.
  • IDE (e.g. Visual Studio Code or WebStorm): IDE (Integrated Development Environment) is a tool with a graphical interface to help in the development of applications and it will be used to develop the Angular application.

Getting started

Create and configure the account on the Amazon Cognito

Amazon Cognito is a simple and secure authentication service that supports user sign in, sign up and control in a WEB or mobile application.

1. Let's create the account. Access the site https://aws.amazon.com/cognito/ and click on the button Sign up now.

Amazon Cognito - Home page

2. Click on the button Create a new AWS account.

Amazon Cognito - Sign in

3. Fill in the fields Email Address, Password, Confirm password, AWS account name, Security check and click on the button Continue (step 1 of 5).

22. Click on the button Create user pool.

Amazon Cognito - Review and create

23. Click on the link angular-cognito with the user pool name.

Amazon Cognito - User pools

24. Copy the user pool ID displayed, in my case, the ID us-east-2_pptCj2gqV was displayed because this ID will be configured in the Angular application and click on the link App integration.

26. Ready! Account created, user pool ID and client ID generated.

Create the Angular application

Angular is a development platform for building WEB, mobile and desktop applications using HTML, CSS and TypeScript (JavaScript). Currently, Angular is at version 13 and Google is the main maintainer of the project.

1. Let's create the application with the Angular base structure using the @angular/cli with the route file and the SCSS style format.

Application - Sign up

2. Check that the user was created in Amazon Cognito.

Application - User unconfirmed

3. Open the email with the subject Your verification code and copy the code generated, in my case, the code 308386 was generated.

Application - Your verification code

4. Fill in the field Code with the code copied and click on the button Confirm.

Application - Confirm code

5. Check that the user was confirmed in Amazon Cognito.

Application - User confirmed

6. Fill in the field Email, Password and click on the button Sign in.

10. Ready! We test the user sign in, sign up and update.

Conclusion

Summarizing what was covered in this article:

  • We created an account on Amazon Web Services (AWS).
  • We created and configured a user pool on Amazon Cognito.
  • We create an Angular application.
  • We added the signin, signup and profile display pages in the Angular application.
  • We tested the Angular application and validated the user's signup on Amazon Cognito.

You can use this article to add authentication with user signin, signup and profile in an Angular application providing access control.

Thank you for reading and I hope you enjoyed the article!

Hello,
I've tried all the code but it's seems I must install amplify cli and use commands "amplify add auth" and "amplify pull" to work with your example...
where I'm wrong?

Hi Edoardo, you don't need Amplity to make this example. Did something not work?

This is the error I receive on console when I try to call
"Auth.signIn(user.email, user.password)"

[ERROR] 13:56.48 AuthError - Error: Amplify has not been configured correctly. The configuration object is missing required auth properties. This error is typically caused by one of the following scenarios:

  1. Did you run amplify push after adding auth via amplify add auth? See aws-amplify.github.io/docs/js/auth... for more information
  2. This could also be caused by multiple conflicting versions of amplify packages, see (docs.amplify.aws/lib/troubleshooti...) for help upgrading Amplify packages.

Did you configure the userPoolId and userPoolWebClientId parameters in the environment files?

solved... I've changed in camelCase the cognito "Auth" property and this caused the error... I have to insert "eslint-disable" to remove ide warnings...

Amplify.configure({
// eslint-disable-next-line @typescript-eslint/naming-convention
Auth: environment.cognito,
});

Hi Rodrigo, excellent post. I've got an issue, though: using Amply is showing now as deprecated, noticed as I used Amplify.configre(). What solution would you suggest?
