About Auth0


Auth0 integration for MODX CMS.

What does it do?

  • Log in to MODX using any/all of the Identify Providers (IdPs) supported by Auth0, such as Google, Facebook, Twitter, Github, Microsoft, Dropbox, and dozens of others, including enterprise services.
  • Synchronize MODX User records, and User Groups, across multiple MODX sites and the Auth0 User database.
  • Log in to MODX with a one-time-use JWT.
  • Practically any of the features and use cases that Auth0 supports.

In its most basic implementation, the auth0.login Snippet redirects the User to your Auth0 domain's login page, then calls the Auth0 API to identify the User by their verified email address. If a MODX User record exists with that email, the auth0.login Snippet attempts to verify the User against the MODX User records, and if successful, adds the MODX Context(s) specified in the Snippet properties, to the User's session.
