Overall Satisfaction with Auth0

It's used to manage the accounts of all our customers. We used to implement our own system to manage our customer accounts. However, when we decided to move on to microservices system architecture, we decide to move on from it and use Auth0 to manage our customer accounts across all services that we provide
  • Good support
  • Offers a broad range of functionality for authentication
  • Flexible and can be used in a lot of use cases
  • Cheap to start with
  • There's been quite a lot of changes lately. Few APIs have been deprecated and we had to adjust our implementation in a relatively short time
  • MFA support could be very expensive
  • Some APIs and functionality are not fully baked yet and prone to deprecation/changes
  • With Auth0, we saved a lot of time and money implementing identity management that would work across all of our services instead of doing it ourselves.
  • There's no going back from Auth0. We've become really dependent on them.
  • It reduces a lot of burden on our side to be GDPR compliant.
Auth0 is very easy to use and configure compared to AAD. Auth0's pricing is also much cheaper than AAD if you only use the basic features (without MFA, etc.). Auth0 also offers broader content and features and is very easy to integrate with pretty much any major product that is broadly used by developers.
Auth0 is really well suited if you want to move to microservices architecture, and the JWT token use case that Auth0 utilises is really spot on. We could carry the JWT token across domains/subdomains which serves as a login cookie and is secure.

I wouldn't recommend Auth0 for a small application which only has 1 service on 1 server. Auth0 would be an overkill in that case
