Here are the step-by-step implementation details to integrate Simple Sign-in (SSI).

Resources provided

  • Appstore SDK: Simple Sign-in APIs along with other functionalities, such as In-App Purchasing (IAP), and Digital Rights Management (DRM).
  • App Tester: A tool that allows testing SSI integration without publishing apps to the Amazon Appstore.
  • SSI Token Library: A Java library to generate and validate link tokens and SSI tokens in your cloud.
  • Sample Application (SSISampleApp): A sample Android app to use for code reference, included in the Appstore SDK.

SSI onboarding

Before you can integrate SSI in your app, you need to perform SSI enablement steps in the Amazon Developer Console. This enables you to get the IdentityProviderName (unique SSI ID) used to call the Simple Sign-in APIs in your code.

Step 1: Select your app

Log in to the Amazon Developer Console and navigate to Developer Console > Apps & Services > MyApps. Select the app you want to enable for SSI.
