Connect Auth0

Learn how to configure a connection to Auth0 via SAML

Introduction

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

WorkOS provides the ACS URL, which is readily available in your Connection's 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.

Overview

And then you provide 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. However, should that not be the case during your setup. Here's how to obtain them:

1

Log In and Select Your Application

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.

2

Obtain Identity Provider Metadata

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.

3

Upload Metadata URL

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