Modules Used

  • Auth0 Platform

Overall Satisfaction with The Okta Identity Cloud

We utilize Auth0 to set up SAML SSO connections with our customer's IDP of choice.
  • Compartmentalizing components of an SSO architecture.
  • Keeping track of user logic activity.
  • The ability to turn on SSO for certain applications with an on/off switch.
  • More detailed error messaging when SSO connections fail during setup
  • Quicker turnaround time for P0/Critical bugs that totally takedown Auth0 services.
  • A fallback plan, such as a redirect, for when an Auth0 outage occurs.
  • Reduced development time in manually setting up SSO SAML connections.
  • During the Auth0 outage, no one could use our product due to the lack of a fallback plan on Auth0's part. This will require us to make our own fallback plan.
  • Basic debugging/error messaging in Auth0 for when a previously set up SSO connection is no longer working.
Auth0 is perfect for when you need to set up Enterprise level SSO connections with minimal effort.

Configuring The Okta Identity Cloud

I think the configuration aspect of Auth0 is a bit complex for our team's needs but gets the job done without causing us too much overhead during setup.
