  • Auth0 Platform

Overall Satisfaction with The Okta Identity Cloud

We use Auth0 as a SSO solution for our organization's websites. We also use the email one-time passwords to protect public facing websites from non authorized users. We use Auth0 with a wide range of web platforms and languages. The solution works across a wide variety of situations, platforms, languages, and devices.
  • Auth0 integrates well with a wide variety of platforms.
  • Auth0 has a good implementation of JSON Web Tokens.
  • Auth0 has a simple to use admin interface.
  • Auth0 changes quite quickly and not all the documentation is kept up to date.
  • Auth0's javascript libraries don't support all features across all versions.
  • Better documentation for using the hosted login page would be helpful.
  • Greatly decreased development time
  • Much easier for users
  • Helped make our security better
We went with Auth0 over Okta due to price concerns and the overall simplicity of Auth0. We chose Auth0 over Amazon Cognito because Cognito has very poor documentation and client library support. Auth0 offers a service that hits the sweet spot for organizations with small development teams and limited finances.
Auth0 is very well suited for situations where a JSON web token can be used for authorizing APIs, websites, and mobile devices. It's especially useful if the JWT validation can happen at a gateway layer. It's especially useful if you only need to verify the user's email address or mobile number as the passwordless login is easy to implement.

Configuring The Okta Identity Cloud

I think the configurability of Auth0 is acceptable for most projects. All of the main items that one might want to configure for a particular project have been considered by the library developers. Sometimes, however, it's difficult to discover the documentation for the configuration options and that can lead to some frustration.
