CognitoIdentityProvider / Client / admin_user_global_sign_out



Invalidates the identity, access, and refresh tokens that Amazon Cognito issued to a user. Call this operation with your administrative credentials when your user signs out of your app. This results in the following behavior.

  • Amazon Cognito no longer accepts token-authorized user operations that you authorize with a signed-out user’s access tokens. For more information, see Using the Amazon Cognito user pools API and user pool endpoints. Amazon Cognito returns an Access Token has been revoked error when your app attempts to authorize a user pools API request with a revoked access token that contains the scope aws.cognito.signin.user.admin.

  • Amazon Cognito no longer accepts a signed-out user’s ID token in a GetId request to an identity pool with ServerSideTokenCheck enabled for its user pool IdP configuration in CognitoIdentityProvider.

  • Amazon Cognito no longer accepts a signed-out user’s refresh tokens in refresh requests.

Other requests might be valid until your user’s token expires.


Amazon Cognito evaluates Identity and Access Management (IAM) policies in requests for this API operation. For this operation, you must use IAM credentials to authorize requests, and you must grant yourself the corresponding IAM permission in a policy.
