This plugin allows you to define your own API Gateway Authorizers as the Serverless CloudFormation resources and apply them to HTTP endpoints. Currently the main use case for this is to enable Cognito User Pool authorizers, which are not yet supported by Serverless 1.0.
npm install --save serverless-plugin-cfauthorizer
You will first need to add a custom authorizer in the custom cfAuthorizers section of your serverless.yml. Here is an example of a Cognito User Pool authorizer. To use this example, you need to substitute your own User Pool ARN on the last line. Note that the properties of the authorizer are standard CloudFormation properties, so you can use any supported values.
custom: cfAuthorizers: MyAuthorizer: Type: "COGNITO_USER_POOLS" Name: "MyUserPoolAuthorizer" IdentitySource: "method.request.header.Authorization" ProviderARNs: - "arn:aws:cognito-idp:eu-west-1:xxxxxxxxxxxx:userpool/eu-west-1_xxxxxxxxx"
Once the above resource has been added, you can configure individual HTTP endpoints in serverless.yml to use the authorizer. They will refer to it using the resource name, which is MyAuthorizer in the example.
functions: hello: handler: handler.hello events: - http: method: get path: hello cfAuthorizer: MyAuthorizer
After making the changes, all you need to do is redeploy the service:
Use API Gateway Console to verify that the authorizer has been deployed properly.
