Use WAF Captcha for the webapps hosted in amplify


Our react based webapp is hosted in amplify web hosting. How do we enable the WAF Captcha for these apps.

By reading few docs, I understand that we can add WAF on top of cloudfront distributions and api gateway and ALB. But I didn't see any references on WAF + Amplify hosting.

Any recommendation on this will be super helpful ?

Amplify does not currently support direct integration with AWS WAF.

A GitHub issue has already been opened regarding this feature request. Please see this link for more information: with some workarounds provided by other users.

There is also an AWS sample in GitHub that talks about enabling WAF for Amplify Hosted web applications by using custom CloudFront distribution. You can refer to this link for details:
