Overall Satisfaction with The Okta Identity Cloud

Auth0 is a vital and critical part of our system. Our entire authentication flow is done using Auth0, so our product heavily relies on Auth0. Auth0 addresses the issue of authentication, saving us the time and effort of building and maintaining a user-management service and integrating with the different social login and SAML login providers.
  • No-code user management and authentication solution
  • Social login provider integration
  • Built-in username-password user database
  • Occasional downtime and slowness
  • Easier access to database for export to a data warehouse
  • Login experience is hard to customize
  • Improved security posture
  • Development time savings
  • Improved end-user experience
Auth0 is really great if you're just starting out building a product. It really saves a lot of time and work. I've implemented a user-service in a million places and it's always the same--the register-login-confirm-email-forgot-password flow. Using Auth0 saves you all that, and you can get up and running in no time, getting a lot of advanced features very quickly and easily.

Auth0 wouldn't really suit you if you already have a working system with your own user database. It might be less appropriate for privacy-intensive applications, as the user data isn't really data you'd like to share or have outside of your own infrastructure.

Configuring The Okta Identity Cloud

Auth0 is very easy to configure for the basic and advanced things. It is just right for this type of product. It is missing a good way to configure using infrastrucutre-as-code practices, although some attempts have been made in the direction, I would prefer the option to configure it code-first.
