Get User Id in Lambda node.js

Hi everyone,

A quick post on where to find the user id (sub) in a lambda requested that has been authenticated with a congito authorizer.

You’ll be able to find everything you need in the event object under requestContext > authorizer > claims:


exports.viewContextHandler = async (event, context, callback) => {
    console.log(JSON.stringify(event.requestContext));
}

"requestContext": {
    "resourceId": "XXXXX",
    "authorizer": {
        "claims": {
            "at_hash": "XXXXX",
            "sub": "XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX",
            "aud": "XXXXX12341234512345XXXXX",
            "email_verified": "true",
            "token_use": "id",
            "auth_time": "1547371205",
            "iss": "https://cognito-XXXXX.com/XXXXX",
            "cognito:username": "XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX",
            "exp": "Sun Jan 13 10:20:05 UTC 2019",
            "iat": "Sun Jan 13 09:20:05 UTC 2019",
            "email": "XXXXX@XXXXX.XXXXX"
        }
    },
}
