Amplify Android v1 is now in Maintenance Mode until May 31st, 2024. This means that we will continue to include updates to ensure compatibility with backend services and security. No new features will be introduced in v1.

Please use the latest version (v2) of Amplify Library for Android to get started.

If you are currently using v1, follow these instructions to upgrade to v2.

For advanced use cases where Amplify does not provide the functionality you're looking for, you can retrieve the escape hatch to access the underlying SDK.

The escape hatch provides access to the underlying AWSMobileClient instance.

AWSMobileClient mobileClient = (AWSMobileClient) Amplify.Auth.getPlugin("awsCognitoAuthPlugin").getEscapeHatch();
1AWSMobileClient mobileClient = (AWSMobileClient) Amplify.Auth.getPlugin("awsCognitoAuthPlugin").getEscapeHatch();

You can use the escape hatch to federatedSignIn with a valid token from other social providers. Find more details here

mobileClient.federatedSignIn(IdentityProvider.FACEBOOK.toString(), "<FACEBOOK_TOKEN_HERE>", new Callback<UserStateDetails>() { @Override public void onResult(final UserStateDetails userStateDetails) { //Handle the result } @Override public void onError(Exception e) { Log.e(TAG, "sign-in error", e); } });
