Last modified on October 4, 2023
This document details the steps to set up Auth0 single sign-on (SSO) to manage authentication for StrongDM.
- In Auth0, click Create Application. Name the application StrongDM and select Regular Web Applications as the application type.
- Next, configure the application. If you are prompted to select a technology to integrate with, click Skip Integration. Then under the Settings tab, enter the following information:
- Allowed Callback URLs:
- Allowed Web Origins:
- In the Basic Information section, copy the Client ID and Client Secret values. You will need them in the next step.
- In the StrongDM Admin UI, go to Settings > User Management. In the Single Sign-on section, click the lock to make changes. Select Auth0 from the provider drop-down menu. Add your single sign-on URL (e.g.,
https://<yourorg>.auth0.com; be sure to include the
https://), Client ID, and Client Secret.
- Confirm Auth0 access: Back at Auth0, confirm that the email addresses for all users are identical in both StrongDM and your SSO provider. Confirm that all users to whom you intend to grant database access have access to the StrongDM application by default.
At this point, you should be ready to enable SSO.
