AWS push notification service integration error

I am trying to integrate Amazon Push Notifications to my iPhone app. I did follow the tutorial provided here correctly.

I am getting this error when creating the Platform EndPoint. (Seems a permission issue with identity pool???)

CognitoIdentityCredentials is not authorized to perform: SNS:CreatePlatformEndpoint

Full message:

        //[self.window.rootViewController.childViewControllers.firstObject performSelectorOnMainThread:@selector(displayDeviceInfo) withObject:nil waitUntilDone:NO];

    }

    return nil;
}];

  • The issue was in the AWS SNS configurations. We need to add "SNS:CreatePlatformEndpoint" to the policy for both Auth and Unauth roles
