Notes on using Cognito with Serverless

  • event.requestContext.identity.cognitoIdentityId should be the user id
  • Cognito User Pools are for handling user registration, authentication, and account recovery
  • Cognito Identity Pools (or Cognito Federated Identities) are a way to authorize users to directly use the various AWS services in your account, such as S3, DynamoDB, and, most relevant for APIs, API Gateway

I needed to add a read-only collaborator to many repositories, and doing it via the website was really tedious
GITHUB_TOKEN=$(git config --global github.token) # I've defined an API token in my git config -- ymmv
GITHUB_USER="" # the collaborator
REPO_OWNER="" # the owner of the repos
REPOS="" # space-delimited list of repositories
PERMISSION="pull" # may be one of "admin", "push" (i.e., read/write -- default), or "pull" (i.e., read-only)
for REPO in ${REPOS} ; do
curl -X PUT -i -d '{ "permission": "'${PERMISSION}'" }' \
