Learn how to configure a connection to Auth0 via SAML.

Each SSO Identity Provider requires specific information to create and configure a new Connection. Often, the information required to create a Connection will differ by Identity Provider.

To create a Auth0 SAML Connection, you’ll need the Identity Provider metadata that is available from your Enterprise customer’s Auth0 instance.

WorkOS provides the ACS URL, which is readily available in your Connection Settings in the WorkOS Dashboard.

The ACS URL is the location an Identity Provider redirects its authentication response to. In Auth0’s case, the ACS URL needs to be set by the Enterprise when configuring your application in their Auth0 instance.

Specifically, the ACS URL will need to be set as the “Application Callback URL” on the SAML2 Web App Settings page found under the “Addons” tab in an Auth0 application.

In order to integrate you’ll need the Auth0 IdP Metadata URL.

Normally, this information will come from your Enterprise customer’s IT Management team when they set up your application’s SAML 2.0 configuration in their Auth0 admin dashboard. Here’s how to obtain them:

Log in to Auth0, go to the admin dashboard, select “Applications” in the sidebar, and then select the “Applications” menu option. Next, select your application from the list of applications.

On the application’s Settings page, scroll down to the bottom and expand the “Advanced Settings” section. Select the “Endpoints” tab and copy the SAML Metadata URL. You’ll need this in the next step.

Finally, upload the SAML Metadata URL you saved earlier in your WorkOS Connection settings. Your Connection will then be linked and good to go!
