AWS Cognito SSO and User Sync with WordPress and Woocommerce


A WordPress/WooCommerce site uses AWS Cognito to store its customer/user database. The site wants information about its newly registered users to be instantly synchronized with the AWS Cognito user pool. As both the WordPress site and the mobile application are linked with AWS Pool, all its registered users should easily log into the WooCommerce site using the same AWS Cognito credentials without any hassle.

How to register WordPress users with AWS Cognito and set up SSO?

  • Allow customers to use the same login credentials to access the WooCommerce store on mobile as well as the website.
  • Maintain consistency and accuracy in customer data across WooCommerce store, mobile app, and AWS Cognito.
  • Utilize AWS Cognito as a centralized hub for managing user authentication and access control.
  • Securely store user information from the WooCommerce store to AWS Cognito.
