Overall Satisfaction with The Okta Identity Cloud

Auth0 is used at StockX for user authentication, as well as application security to meet the OAuth 2.0 standard. We replaced our legacy login system for our API users with Auth0 to integrate new applications. Auth0 has enforces two-factor authentication, something our legacy system did not have.

We are looking to expand our use around RBAC.
  • Easy to set up and meets the RFC standards.
  • Marketplace has many integrations.
  • Lack of email format validations.
  • Unit testing rules is difficult - they are improving it with actions but it's currently still in beta.
  • Poor automated localization support - all emails from Auth0 must be crafted manually using large IF statement blocks to translate emails.
  • We have seen a decrease in Account Takeovers.
We looked at Okta before they bought Auth0. Okta is more sophisticated in terms of enterprise solutions, but was out-of-date when it came to user and developer solutions.
Auth0 is far from perfect and it is not cheap. However I believe it is the best solution in existence for developers looking to start a project without having to worry about the security details of their signup/login flow. They are developer oriented and provide many resources and integrations.

Configuring The Okta Identity Cloud

Aside from the localization issues I think the configurability is good.
