Use the CloudWatch console to track metrics

You can track and collect Amazon Cognito user pools metrics using CloudWatch. The CloudWatch dashboard will display metrics about every Amazon service you use. You can use CloudWatch to create metric alarms. The alarms can be set up to send you notifications or make a change to a specific resource that you are monitoring. To view service quota metrics in CloudWatch, complete the following steps.

  1. Open the CloudWatch console.

  2. In the navigation pane, choose Metrics.

  3. In All metrics select a metric and a dimension.

  4. Select the check box next to a metric. The metrics will appear in the graph.


Metrics that haven't had any new data points in the past two weeks don't appear in the console. They also don't appear when you enter their metric name or dimension names in the search box in the All metrics tab in the console, and they are not returned in the results of a list-metrics command. The best way to retrieve these metrics is with the get-metric-data or get-metric-statistics commands in the Amazon CLI.
