AWS iOS SDK Cognito Developer Authentication (Swift)


I am having a hard time figuring out how to return developer credentials provided by my server (via AWS) to my Example identity provider.

It seems I need to do this synchronously within the refresh method on the ExampleIdentityProvider class. I’m using AFNetworking to make the request, but it is an async GET request. How can I do this synchronously for the refresh method on my IdentityProvider?

The following is in Swift:


I believe I have figured it out. I needed to utilize BFTask which is built for handling background tasks with completion.

For people struggling with a Swift implementation of developer authentication with Cognito who might have a similar setup to me, this is how I accomplished it:

And initialized the ExampleAppIdentityProvider by doing:

I created a struct named GlobalVariables with global environment variables that hold values for bucket, unAuthRoleArn, authRoleArn, etc. Of course you don’t have to do that, but I’m mentioning it in case someone is confused.
