CognitoIdentityProvider / Client / global_sign_out



Signs out a user from all devices. GlobalSignOut invalidates all identity, access and refresh tokens that Amazon Cognito has issued to a user. A user can still use a hosted UI cookie to retrieve new tokens for the duration of the 1-hour cookie validity period.

Your app isn’t aware that a user’s access token is revoked unless it attempts to authorize a user pools API request with an access token that contains the scope aws.cognito.signin.user.admin. Your app might otherwise accept access tokens until they expire.


Amazon Cognito doesn’t evaluate Identity and Access Management (IAM) policies in requests for this API operation. For this operation, you can’t use IAM credentials to authorize requests, and you can’t grant IAM permissions in policies. For more information about authorization models in Amazon Cognito, see Using the Amazon Cognito native and OIDC APIs.
