Ingest your event data from Auth0 into RudderStack.

Auth0 is a popular solution used by many companies to add authentication and authorization services to their applications.

You can send your Auth0 authentication and user behavior-related events by adding a custom webhook that points to RudderStack.

This guide will help you set up Auth0 as a source in RudderStack.

Getting started

Follow these steps to set up your Auth0 source in the RudderStack dashboard:

  1. Go to your RudderStack dashboard and click Add Source. From the list of Event Streams sources, select Auth0.
  2. Assign a name to your source and click Continue.
  3. Your Auth0 source is now configured. Note the Webhook URL in the Settings tab:

Auth0 custom webhook settings
  1. Configure the other webhook settings as required.
You can also filter the events sent to your custom webhook by category. For more information on these categories, refer to the Auth0 documentation.
  1. Click Save to save the custom webhook.

Event transformation

RudderStack ingests Auth0 events as track, group, and identify calls.

RudderStack converts the Auth0 payload into an identify event if the Auth0 payload contains the event type as ss.

RudderStack converts the Auth0 payload into a group event if the Auth0 payload contains the description as Add members to an organization.

RudderStack converts the rest of the events as track events.

RudderStack ingests the events related to adding members to an organization as group calls and the signup-related events as identify calls. All the other events are ingested as track calls.

RudderStack maps the following properties from the Auth0 event payload to RudderStack properties for all identify, track, and group events:

Events not flowing

If you are unable to see any events flowing from the Auth0 API webhooks to RudderStack, you can troubleshoot the issue by viewing the API webhooks logs. To do so, go to your Auth0 dashboard and navigate to Monitoring > Logs.

Refer to the Auth0 documentation for more information on troubleshooting your webhook.
