Overall Satisfaction with The Okta Identity Cloud

We use Auth0 as an SSO solution across many web sites. It integrates well with multiple web servers and platforms. Auth0 has been much easier to use than other similar systems for both our programmers and our users. We hope to expand our use of Auth0 in the future as well.
  • Hosted login pages work well and take a lot of work out of building an auth system.
  • Auth0 works well for emailing one-time login codes to users so they don't need to remember passwords.
  • Auth0's integration with Google sign-on makes integrations very easy for organizations that already use Google Apps.
  • The online documentation is very easy to follow, but is sometimes outdated.
  • Better integration with Caddy web server would be fabulous.
  • Better support for generic javascript redirects would be nice.
  • Greatly decreased development time!
  • User experience was much better.
  • The ability to eliminate passwords and use one-time codes greatly improved security.
I chose Auth0 over Amazon Cognito for the simple reason that the Auth0 documentation is 1000 times better! I honestly could never figure out how to actually do anything useful with Cognito, but perhaps their docs have gotten better, I don't know. Auth0 had me up and running very quickly.
I would recommend it to anyone who is looking to integrate various systems behind a web server that supports JSON auth. It is also quite nice for Ruby on Rails applications. I would be more likely to recommend Auth0 if there were clear, uncomplicated, options for whatever platform the person is using.

Configuring The Okta Identity Cloud

Auth0 is very, very configurable! In fact, the amazing amount of configurability can sometimes lead to issues with the docs. I sometimes wonder if I'm missing something I need to configure.
